Sunday Igboho retracts statement after bashing, says “May Dare Adeboye rest in peace”
Hours after video of Igboho taunting Pa Adeboye, senior pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God over the demise of his son went viral, Oodua Republic agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has denied the claims in the video, saying he was misquoted.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that Oodua Republic agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has taunted senior pastor and general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye following the sad loss of his 42-year-old son, Dare.
Igboho’s reaction on the demise of Pa Adeboye’s son generated outrage and a lot of negative reactions from Nigerians who criticized the activist for being insensitive to the present ordeal of the septuagenarian.
Following the criticisms and condemnations he suffered from some Nigerians, the Oodua Republic agitator has denied taunting Pa Adeboye, “saying may our father live long.”
Igboho claimed he was misquoted, adding that he only rained curses on the enemies of the Yoruba race.
“They said I mocked Pastor Adeboye, I didn’t mock that man. He is our father. I wasn’t talking to him. I don’t know him and he does not know me. I am a Christian. Had it been that I am a Muslim, they would have said I’m trying to be religious intolerant. I was only saying the Yoruba nation is not a religious matter. We accommodate Muslims, Christians and traditionalists. I didn’t insult that man. People just misquoted me by cutting that part of the video. Did I mock him? I didn’t say anything concerning him.
I was asked a question about the death of his son, how will I mock him over his son’s death. I can’t pray that his son should die. I didn’t say anything negative about him. I said all elders who have the power to assist the Yoruba race but choose not to, I rained curses on them.
“God who created us knows when we will go back. Whoever mocks the dead will also die one day. We all will die. How will I mock the dead? I didn’t insult the deceased son. May God forgive the dead and may his soul rest in peace. May our father live long,” Sunday Igboho stated.
