- The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has reacted to the abduction of five ministers of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), who were on their way to attend the church’s Ministers’ Conference in Lagos on Thursday.
He also condemned the murder of Catholic Parish Priest of St. James, the Greater Parish, Ugbawka, in Enugu State, Rev FR Paul Offu.
Aprokorepublic had reported that the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, announced the abduction on Friday at the Redeemed Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Adeboye, while charging the congregation to pray for the release of the abductees, said the abduction took place on Thursday along the Ijebu-Ode axis.
He was quoted as saying:-
“As a father, how do you think I should feel to hear that five of my children have been kidnapped while on their way to attend the Ministers Conference?”
Also, the Catholic Parish Priest of St. James, the Greater Parish, Ugbawka, in Enugu State, Rev FR Paul Offu was reportedly shot dead by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Thursday evening.
Reacting, Apostle Suleiman expresses sadness and disbelief over the recent development.
The outspoken cleric called on God to ‘frustrate the agenda of the wicked men in Nigeria’ over recent abduction.
On his verified Twitter page, Apostle Suleman wrote:-
Just got into the country and hearing strange news of 5 RCCG pastors kidnapped, Catholic priest killed, soldiers buried secretly?
Are these true? I don’t want to believe it.
Father in the name of Jesus, we ask you release all those in hands of captors after the order of Acts 12.frustrate the agenda of wicked men in Nigeria. (Isaiah 7v7,isaiah 8v10,psalms 68v1).
Let ceaseless flow of blood come to an end in Jesus name.
