Celestial Church Falsifies Leadership Controversy

Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), was accused by some group of people when they say some of its leaders have debunked some statements making the rounds which they described as misguided and aimed at tarnishing the image of the church.
The leaders also called for peace and unity in the church.
Speaking at a press briefing Wednesday in Lagos, a member of the church Board of Trustees (BoT) and Pastor-in-Council, Evangelist Samson Banjo, said the church had been portrayed in negative light by some self-seeking individuals who cashed on the current crisis facing the leadership of the church.
Banjo who frowned at the unpleasant development, noted that the crisis began on December 24, 2005, when one Godwin Bolanle Shonekan who had been excommunicated in 2004 for illegal and anti-church activities, "showed up at the Christmas convocation of the church in Celestial city Imeko Holy Land in Ogun State, with a group of thugs with the intention of declaring himself pastor of the church, but he was prevented, arrested by the police and later charged to court."
Addressing journalists, he stated that the church decided to take him to court to restrain him from further similar atrocities, adding: "In March 26 this year, the trial judge, Justice A.O Asenuga, ruled that the self-proclamation of Shonekan as the pastor of the church is unconstitutional," and therefore ruled that the appointment of a pastor requires the re-articulation of a new constitution.
The clergyman further stressed that the BoT as one of the defendants, has appealed against the court ruling, noting that the summary of the decision is subject to the outcome of the appeals filed against the judgements.
