There has been a shakeup in City of David Parish. The Iluyomades were removed as leaders of Flamboyant RCCG Parish.

Pastor Idowu Iluyomade of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) City of David Parish, Region 20, Victoria Island, Lagos, has been transferred, and Pastor Kayode Pitan has taken over as pastor.


Pastor Idowu Iluyomade has relocated to the RCCG Throne of Grace in Ebute Metta, Lagos, which serves as the mission’s headquarters.

This transfer was officially confirmed on Sunday, June 2, at the monthly thanksgiving service held in all RCCG branches worldwide.

Notably, senior RCCG figures such as retired National Overseer Pastor Obayemi, Pastor Johnson Odesola, and Region 9 leader Pastor Pandel were present in City of David to carry out these changes.

The absence of Pastor Idowu Iluyomade and his wife, Pastor Siju Iluyomade, from the service was unusual, especially on the first Sunday of the month.

According to reports, the thanksgiving service was unusually brief, with Pastor Trevor Akindele, Pastor Iluyomade’s assistant, taking his place.

Following the service, an announcement was made requesting that all pastors, ministers, workers, and elders remain for a meeting, indicating the gravity of the situation.

Pastor Idowu Iluyomade has accepted a position as Pastor-in-Charge of Elders at RCCG Region 1, Ebute Metta.

According to sources, Pastor Iluyomade is dissatisfied with the transfer, citing his extensive efforts in building the Trinity Towers, a project valued at over 10 billion Naira that is still owed to Access Bank.

Furthermore, Pastor Iluyomade, who is 65 years old, reportedly expressed dissatisfaction that he has not yet reached the retirement age of 70.

Rumours suggested that his wife, Siju Iluyomade, was celebrating her 60th birthday shortly after the death of former Access Bank Managing Director Mr. Herbert Wigwe, which may have influenced the decision.

Wigwe was said to have played a prominent role in raising funds for the City of David’s new complex, the Trinity Towers.

Pastor Iluyomade allegedly advised against the celebration, citing potential repercussions.

However, sources close to RCCG leadership maintained that pastoral transfers are common practice within the mission, usually occurring after a pastor has served for several years in one location.
