RCCG denies restricting Muslims from entering Redemption Camp

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has discredited allegations that it is disallowing Muslims from entering its camp along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) had made the allegation, saying Muslims were prevented from transacting business in their banks or to check their WAEC, JAMB and other examination centres in the Redemption Camp.

The Muslim organisation had 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 securitymen who turn them back at the gates with clear messages that Muslims are persona non grata inside the camp.”

RCCG spokesperson Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi told Daily Trust that it was “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 any one who has a legal and genuine purpose for seeking access,” he said.
