Adeboye: Sunday Igboho claims he was misquoted, prays for late RCCG G.O’s son
Popular Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igboho has denied mocking the General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye over the death of his son.
Recall that, Sunday Igboho during a live Facebook video with Olayomi Koiki on Saturday, refused to sympathise with Pastor Adeboye when he was told to do so saying he does not support the Yoruba nation.
His comment however generated outrage from Nigerians who bashed him for being insensitive. With the bashings on social media, Sunday Igboho has come out to deny mocking Adeboye, “saying may our father live long.”
Adeyemo 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.
