Leke Adeboye made to face 3-man panel over comments against father's pastors
Pastor Enoch Adeboye's son has been invited to face a panel over his statement against pastors.
Leke Adeboye, son and Senior Personal Assistant to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, had called some pastors of the church "goats."
Leke specifically referred to pastors who preached after his father's sermon on Sundays.
Saharareporters had reported earlier that he was not punished for his utterances. Instead, the church issued a warning to desist from inciting comments.
On Sunday, April 3, his father's sermon warned the nation against bankruptcy if the oil theft in Nigeria is not stopped.
On Sunday, Adeboye had rued oil theft in the country, warning that Nigeria might go bankrupt if the trend was not checked.
Adeboy's sermon was supposed to be the only sermon for that Sunday as all pastors were expected to connect to the headquarters.
However, after the Thanksgiving service, some pastors allegedly continued with their already prepared sermon, an action that had angered Leke.
Leke took to his Instagram page and called such pastors "goats" out of anger.
"Why would you go and preach another sermon after Daddy GO (General Overseer) had just finished speaking and preaching? You are not a son; you are a goat, sir. Next Thanksgiving service, just do altar call, then Thanksgiving," he wrote.
The online media quoted a source that Leke was forced to face a 3-man panel, including his father-in-law, where he was warned never to repeat such a statement ever again.
The report also claimed that the angry preacher's son obstinately said he would not apologise for his insult against the senior pastors.
"Leke Adeboye was made to face a panel today (Wednesday) for insulting pastors and calling them goats. The three-man panel, unfortunately, did not punish him or ask him to apologise," one of the sources said.
"One of the members of the panel is his father-in-law,' another source noted.
"He arrogantly told off the panel that he cannot apologise. And what did they do? They only told him to not repeat it again."©Standard Gazette, 2021.
