The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, said only one pastor of the church was abducted by kidnappers rather than the five initially stated.
Pastor E.A Adeboye debunked his former claims stating that five RCCG pastors were abducted along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Thursday August 1st. He made the clarification on Friday night while addressing pastors of the Church at the Redemption camp along Lagos-Ibadan express way.
He had previously announced on Friday morning August 2nd, during a church service that 5 of his church pastors who were traveling to the camp ground for the annual Ministers conference had been abducted.
Here is what he said during the evening service to clarify his statement, following investigations by the police.
“People have been taunting me and challenging me that since I hear from God how come this is happening to your church pastors. I want to say it has been confirmed that only one pastor of the church was kidnapped along with four other people. That does not reduce from the weight of the incidence however. The church will continue to pray for the release of all those who have been kidnapped.”he said
