The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman has faulted some protesters that stormed The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Monday.
The Herald can report that the protesters led by rapper, Eedris Abdulkarim stormed the church in Lagos to call on its influential General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to publicly push for the Federal Government to secure Sharibu’s release from her Boko Haram abductors.
The protesters also called on Daddy GO, as Adeboye is popularly called, to speak up against alleged Islamisation agenda under President Muhammadu Buhari, among other issues.
This newspaper can further report that the protests took place on the 500th day anniversary of Sharibu’s abduction.
Suleman defended Adeboye, who he has publicly described as his spiritual father, saying that the revered cleric had on numerous occasions called for the girl’s release.
The fiery preacher added that as an elder, Adeboye should not be expected to handle issues the way younger preachers would handle them.
He also dared the protesters to hit his church headquartered in Auchi, Edo State.
Taking to Twitter, Suleman wrote: “Just saw pictures of protesters at RCCG accusing Papa Adeboye of not speaking about Leah Sharibu and co. Part of the people that accused Reno Omokri are they not Christians?
“Well, they know the kind of churches they have boldness to go and protest.
“I repeat, it’s wrong to say pastors are supporting islamisation agenda.
“Many pastors have gone through a lot for speaking out. Papa Adeboye is not young like we are; he can only play fatherly role.
“We are the ones that do the speaking and contention.
“Papa Adeboye said the govt should hasten the release of Leah and all in captivity (I was there).
“He only told us not to take laws into our hands and pray for Nigeria and you say he is not speaking.
“Wait till you are that age so you show us how else an elder should speak.”
