The body which was represented by outstanding men of God including the Public Relations Officer, PFSL, Archbishop Dr. Edward Tamba Charles from Roman Catholic Mission, Bishop Dr. John K. Yambasu, Rev. Osman Jesse Fornah from EFSL, Bishop Archibald Cole, General Secretary/CEO of EFSL, Rev. Jonathan Titus Williams and representative of Archbishop Tamba Charles and Rev. Fr. Vincent Davies made the statement at a press conference held at the jam-packed Bethel World Outreach Ministries International on 156 Circular Road in Freetown.
According to Rev. Jonathan Titus William, Evangelist Ajesafe has taken responsibility of his statement because he made it out of opinion but not out of the Body of Christ and maintained that they are sorry for the occurrence of such an event. Rev. William disclosed that their desire is to ensure Churches operates under the umbrella of Body of Christ.
When asked if it was true that Evangelist Ajesafe should appear in Court, the Body of Christ responded that it was not to their knowledge that he has been charged to Court.
Rev. Francis Vincent Davies appealed to the Body of Christ to remain calm, pray and be very careful on the way they are preaching so that they can maintain peace. He said they as men of God will do all what it takes to make the matter a thing of the past for the fact that he said, it has the propensity to overturn our peace and unity we have been enjoying for many years.
He called on the Muslim community to show understanding in the name of religious tolerance for peace to prevail and forgive our brother and mentioned that they are not in support of him for the fact that all of us should enjoy peaceful co-existence.
Bishop Julius Laggah admonished Pastors, Ministers of Gospels and the Body of Christ to desist from making irresponsible comments because it deflate their own moral as people of God and stated that the issue of Evangelist Ajesafe teaches both Christians and Muslims to be very objective in delivering sermon or preaching.
Bishop Dr. J. Archibald Cole called on Muslims and Christians to continue maintaining religious tolerance they are known for because he said; tolerant is a two sided issue and he spoke on the way and manner the statement of Evangelist Ajesafe did go down well to all the remaining Christians and Muslims.
