Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho has denied the video evidence where he mocked the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Chirch of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye over the death of his son, Dare Adeboye.
In the controversial video, which went viral on Saturday, Igboho said he would not sympathise with Pastor Adeboye over the death of Dare, his third child because the cleric has not supported 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”, Igboho said in the video.
Following the social media backlash that greeted the video, Igboho came out to deny it, praying “may God forgive the dead and may his soul rest in peace.”
According to Igboho, he was misquoted, adding that he only rained curses on the enemies of the Yoruba race and not the man of God.
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.”
