Here is what he submitted on #cno as a comment;
“I am a bonafide member of CCC Army Barracks’ Road, Mokola, I am also a member of the Parochial Committee of the church, I have read the write-up and all the allegations therein which are totally false and baseless. I hereby on behalf of the noble church respond to the baseless allegations this;
Indeed, CCC Army Barracks’ Road, Mokola is no longer how it used to be as the church has gained more genuine worshipers and the church has witnessed more growth in terms of structure and beautification.
I make bold to say that there are no nefarious activities as alleged.
It is also not true that 70% of the church members have fled the church as the church daily welcomes new entrants into the church. People who are not financially buoyant have never been treated as less human.
Ven Sup Evang. Noah Ikumehinlo is a man of integrity and is well knowledgeable in the tenets of the church.
The church services are always duly conducted and it is also a fallacy that the shepherd curses his members.
The church at the moment is in a massive state of extension and renovation, and the church is being beautified as I type.
He has never mocked Baba Adekanmbi as he always pays obeisance to the departed Baba Adekanmbi and he always acknowledged that he is in Oyo State on transfer and whenever he is transferred he would gladly take his leave. He has always stated that he s 100% loyal to the pastor.
Who has leveled allegations of cursing the choir, this is also baseless as the choir does their practice as at when due, and as I type, the choir is having their rehearsal in preparation for Baba Adetiran’s service of songs tomorrow afternoon. (Today)
Is it a crime for the adult harvest committee to invite guest artists for harvest day? It is also not true that the choir would vacate their barricade as the choir would perform as usual as well as the guest musician, mind you Moses Harmony is also a Celestial member and not an outsider. It is a general tradition that guest artists are invited on harvest day.
If there is any grievance against Baba Noah, it would have been better if the writer visits him and thrash things out with him instead of putting the church in a bad light in the face of the public.
On sexual abuse, he who asserts must prove, it would be so so good if victims of such sexual abuse make a report to the necessary quarters for proper investigation and sanctions. It is criminal to make such grave unsubstantiated allegation…The writer should pray for forgiveness of sin as Baba Olatiregun, the Parochial Committee Chairman is a man of integrity who is a peace-loving gentleman. It is so sad that the writer does not consider the family of this great man of God and some families that these baseless allegations would put in disarray.
CCC Army Barracks’ Road, Mokola is loyal to the Pastor and would not do anything to disparage the Church.
It is also evident that the writer is not a loyal member of the Celestial Church of Christ, as writing such things online would only go a long way to paint the church in a bad light in the eyes of the public.
May God forgive the writer.
May God continually bless His church.”
