Following the death of Pastor Dare Adeboye, the Yoruba separatist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has explained that he never insulted the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over the death of his son, Dare.
Reports have it that Igboho stirred the hornets’ nest when he rained curses on any leader or cleric who refuses to support the secession agenda, saying God will kill their children and wives.
Igboho’s aide, Olayomi Koiki, in the video had asked him (Igboho) to commiserate with Adeboye over the death of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
But the visibly infuriated Igboho asked if the man of God had declared his support for the Yoruba nation.
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.
“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.”
But Igboho in another viral video has backtracked saying he never insulted Adeboye but was referring to elders who were sabotaging the efforts of Yoruba Nation.
He said: “May we not experience untimely death, I did not insult Baba, or speak ill of him or the dead. If you look at the video, you’ll see that it was not related to him.
“I only placed curses on all elders who have powers and can help Yoruba nation but have refused to help the struggle.
“I was referring to the elders, why will you have power? Influence? and you can see how we are suffering and being killed, you are supposed to pity and help us.
“God knows when we’ll all leave this world, he owns us, we’ll all die someday. I did not mock the Adeboye family over their son’s demise.
“May God forgive us all, and grant Baba Adeboye long life. I did not abuse him. I only placed a curse on those who are sabotaging the efforts of the Yoruba Nation.
“I don’t know Baba Adeboye physically, and he does not know me too, I did not mock him.
“Baba must have watched the video, and he’ll know I did not abuse him. In the last video, I only said we shouldn’t mix religion with our struggle.
“Please I want to implore all Yorubas not to create confusion over the current struggle. He is a pastor, I’m a Christian, So how can I be abusing a cleric? I did not abuse or mock him. Let people desist from spreading such information.”
