RCCG Speaks On Denying Muslims Access To Redemption Camp
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has reacted to allegations that they banned Muslims from entering its camp located along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Naija News understands that Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), through its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, had alleged that Muslims were prevented from transacting business in their banks or to check their WAEC, JAMB and other examination centres.
He, therefore, demanded the relocation of examination centres from the RCCG camp, saying MURIC was inundated with complaints from Nigerian Muslims who have been denied access to the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
MURIC said, “Among the complainants are Muslims who registered for the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB), the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) as well as other examinations. Attempts by the candidates to enter the RCCG camp in order to check their examination centres are always rebuffed by RCCG security men who turn them back at the gates with clear messages that Muslims are persona non grata inside the camp.”
Reacting to the allegation during an interview with Daily Trust, the RCCG spokesperson, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, said the allegation was unfounded, adding that the camp remains open to all individuals with a legitimate business.
Olubiyi said, “All I can tell you is that it is a fake news. Those behind it may have their own script they are playing out but I can assure you that the Redemption City of God remains accessible to anyone who has a legal and genuine purpose for seeking access.”
