Critic, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze has attacked the presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo for cursing Fulani herdsmen who killed one of his pastors.
Oyedepo had on Thursday night placed curses on alleged Fulani herdsmen who killed one of his pastors, Jeremiah Omolewa. The bishop was visibly angry when he placed the curses.
Jeremiah Omolewa, last Sunday night was on his way with his family from Abuja to Kaduna when tragedy struck. He was killed, while his son escaped and his wife abducted. The kidnappers have demanded N50 million ransom to set her free.
Oyedepo, who spoke on the second day of the Church’s week of spiritual emphasis, said “Just last Sunday night for those of us who may have heard the news, one of our pastors was hacked down by Fulani herdsmen from Abuja to Kaduna. I want you to know that it’s the last they will do because I am going to lead you now to release curse of God upon his assailants and all their backers.
“Except I am not sent, their end has come. This evil system will crash. And I am speaking as a Prophet, not as a pastor, like somebody walking on the street. This evil system that has no value for life, this wicked system – Fulani demons: In the name of Jesus, their end has come.
“It’s not by force that we live together. Nobody in this land has more stake than me in Nigeria. The church is not begging to live. The church has the legal and divine right to live in this country. You know because the church has played so cheap.
“God curses. He said whosoever curses you, I will curse Gen 12:3. Oh God, confirm your curse upon them.
Jesus curses. The fig tree which thou curseth is withered away, how quickly Mark 11:21. Release your curse upon these wicked men.
“The Holy Ghost curses. Paul full of the Holy Ghost, looked at that demon called Elymas, released a curse upon him and he went blind same time, Acts 13:9-11. Holy Ghost, release your curse upon these wicked men. They just crossed the red line. They just crossed the red line. They just crossed the red line,” he said.
