General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye, has said that he would kill anyone that messes around with his wife.
Adeboye, Nigeria’s most revered cleric, sounded the warning in a 25-second video which has gone viral on social media.
He said, “You can insult me. You can trample on me. I will only pray for you. You can mess around with my wife, I will kill you so thoroughly that you won’t even be able to rise on the resurrection morning.”
Adeboye is married to Foluke.
In the short video, the 77-year-old pastor, who was in a native dress made of Ankara fabrics, sat in a chair and gave the threat in his usual calm mien.
The video will surely shock many followers of Adeboye because they regard him highly as a preacher of righteousness and the gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Adeboye, who served as a professor of mathematics at the University of Lagos,
married Foluke in 1967. Their marriage is blessed with four children.
The septuagenarian joined RCCG in 1973 as an interpreter to its founder Pastor Josiah Akindayomi. He was ordained pastor in 1977.
