Ukrainian Pastor, Sunday Adelaja entangled in adultery scandal

Founder of one of Europe’s biggest churches, Sunday Adelaja, has been accused of having intercourse with more than 20 women in his church, Embassy of the Blessed Kingdom of God for All Nations Church in Kiev, Ukraine.

According to Punch, the Nigerian-born pastor is currently under fire to resign as the spiritual head of the church over the allegations.

However, Adelaja, in an email with the newspaper, denied the allegation brought against him, saying it is an effort by people to undermine him and his church.

“That is not true at all; I have read what people are saying about me. The funny thing is that nobody asked me for any information; no interview was granted to anyone,” he said.

“It is actually an old story that was cooked up by some disgruntled members of my leadership team when they knew of my decision to hand over the church because of my plan to return to Africa.

“So, it’s a leadership tussle from those whose desires for church leadership were not granted. I’m happy with my wife. The church here in Ukraine is doing well. So I thank God that their stories though believed by some without confirmation is still false nevertheless.”

On the contrary, a statement on the website of Russian Union of Christians Evangelical Faith points out that Adelaja had at a meeting with pastors and board of elders of his church confessed to the accusation.

A letter written by one Apostle Toff Ulissis, and posted on the website of the Spiritual Council Russian Union of Christians Evangelical Faith (Pentecostals), reads:

“Pastor Sunday mentioned that he had a relationship with 20 or 30 women; probably, the number was more than he could remember. Also, I talked with many women (married and unmarried), as well as with their husbands, and they shared with me their pain and described how the pastor manipulates people, who work for him. All the stories were equally horrific, disgusting and depressing. People are very sorry about the current situation with the pastor and wanted him to have psychiatric help.

“I made it clear that my aim is not to destroy either the Embassy of God, because many people have found help in the church or Pastor Sunday as a person. I wanted to make sure that everything has been done to these women and the couples have received care, reconciliation and redeeming restoration.”

A bishop at Adelaja’s church, Anatoly Belonozhko, is said to have resigned from his position after Adelaja refused to seek help.
