BEVERLY HILLS, May 09, (THEWILL) – Yoruba secessionist agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has attacked the General Overseer of the Redemmed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, for allegedly not identifying with the agitation for a Yoruba nation.
Igboho spoke on Saturday night while featuring in an interview by his spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki.
THEWILL reports Adeboye’s son, Dare, 42, died in his sleep on Tuesday, May 4, in Eket, Akwa-Ibom where he was pastoring a church.
Igboho’s aide, Olayomi Koiki, in the video had asked him (Igboho) to commiserate with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), over the death of his son, Dare Adeboye.
But the visibly infuriated Igboho asked if the man of God had declared his support for the Yoruba nation.
He said he would not sympathise with Adeboye because he did not support the agitation for Yoruba nation despite his influence and the huge congregations in his churches all over the world.
Igboho in the now-viral video did not mince words when he rained curses on any leader or Pastor who refuses to support the secession agenda, saying God will kill their children and wives.
He said: “Has Baba supported the Yoruba nation that we will now be greeting him? We don’t need to greet Adeboye. What is my own with that? We are not doing church here. This is not religion.
“What we are doing is not about religion. Even our clerics are blocking our path. We don’t need to commiserate with Adeboye, what’s my business with that?
“Adeboye has never spoken about the Yoruba issue. Look at how huge his congregation is, why hasn’t he spoken for the Yoruba Nation? We don’t need to commiserate with him.
“God himself will judge those who have not supported us, may He continue to kill their wives and children since they don’t want us to reach our promised land.
“Whoever does not support Yoruba Nation but have the crowd in their churches, God I invoke you, you own me and everything I own belongs to you, and they have seen how Fulanis kidnap us and demand ransom, continue to kill their wives and children. So be it!”
Igboho had earlier in the interview cautioned those abusing Yoruba monarchs. He said he made the mistake of raining abuses on the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi but he had apologised and the monarch had forgiven him.
He also called on the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi, to join the struggle against oppression of Yoruba by the Fulani.
Igboho also called on those attacking Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to desist. He said Tinubu himself knew that Fulani people would not give him the presidential ticket to rule Nigeria.
Igboho said Tinubu would eventually get the presidential ticket to be President of the Yoruba nation.
He called on President Buhari to ask Fulani people in the forests in Yorubaland to leave saying, he and his people would move into the forest to confront them from Monday.
