RCCG bans indecent dressing in Redemption City


Says the action was necessary to maintain the ‘Holy City’ status of the Redemption City

The Redeemed Christian Church of God campground, Mowe on Thursday banned the habit of dressing indecently as the church leadership said it will mete out sanctions on any resident caught dressing indecently.
This was contained in a memo from the office of the Special Assistant to the General Overseer, Oladele Balogun on Thursday.
Balogun, who disclosed that the action was necessary to maintain the ‘Holy City’ status of the Redemption City, noted that such sanctions will not be limited to children caught in the act alone but it will also be extended to parents and guardians of such children.
The memo read, “We wish to formally inform all residents of Redemption City that, in our commitment to preserving the city’s sanctity and upholding its esteemed ‘Holy City’ status, the mission authority is implementing stricter measures against indecent dressing throughout the city.
“Henceforth, the mission authority has directed that any individual apprehended for dressing indecently will face significant sanctions, and the same punishment will also be extended to the parent or legal guardian.

“We, therefore, strongly urge all parents/guardians to instil proper Christian and dressing ethics in their wards to prevent unnecessary embarrassment, as the security operatives and Kingsford Security have been instructed to enforce the above directives with immediate effect.
“The security operatives and Kingsford Security are hereby further directed not to allow anyone who dresses indecently to enter the Redemption City forthwith. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.”
