Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, on Friday night August 2nd, said contrary to his earlier comment, only one pastor of the church was abducted by kidnappers along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Thursday August 1st.
He made the clarification while addressing pastors of the Church at the Redemption camp along Lagos-Ibadan express way.
On Friday morning August 2nd, Adeboye had announced during a church service that 5 of his church pastors who were traveling to the camp ground for the annual Ministers conference have been abducted.
However when he addressed his congregation during the evening service, he said investigations by the police has shown that it was only one pastor of the church that was kidnapped alongside four other persons.
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
