Rasaq Ibrahim, Ado-Ekiti


The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has condemned the recent attacks by gunmen on traditional institutions in Ekiti State.

Adeboye, who spoke in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state capital, yesterday when he visited Governor Kayode Fayemi, said traditional institutions deserved respect because of the critical roles it plays in society.

“It is condemnable; the flagrant disrespect to our traditional institutions in Ekiti State in recent times by gunmen,” he said.

The cleric spoke against the backdrop of attacks on two monarchs by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in the state in the last ten days.

He urged residents to continue in their prayers for the country to survive the problems confronting it, saying, “I have committed myself in fighting the battle for the soul of the nation spiritually.”


Adeboye, who was in the state to ordain about 1000 pastors, said leaders across political divides must not relegate God to the background in their activities and policies in the interest of the citizens.

The General Overseer, who revealed that his grandmother was from Ekiti, said God will halt the reign of terror and violence in the country, assuring that every tree that the Lord had not planted would be uprooted.

Responding, Fayemi while expressing delight for the visit to the Government House by the renowned cleric, commended him for his prayers and efforts towards the development and progress of the country.

“We need prayers, we need a lot of help, our people are very prayerful, and we know the development RCCG has witnessed under your leadership, particularly in our own setting here. We pray that God will continue to be good to us and heal the land and in a moment, all of us will have testimony to the good works of the Lord,” Fayemi said.
