Rufus Adepoju, the diocesan bishop of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) of Ekiti state, has been suspended for engaging in sexual activities with the wife of another priest.


The cleric was involved with the wife of a priest under his employment and care. A letter containing his suspension dated 11 December 2020 stated that Bishop Adepoju admitted that his actions were wrong.


The bishop will not be involved in any activity of the diocese as the diocesan bishop for one year. He has been asked to provide a report and handover to his archbishop.
