Oluwo denies labelling Adeboye, Oyedepo as fake pastors
The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has denied saying that the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, and the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith World Outreach, Bishop David Oyedepo, are not true men of God.
The Oluwo, who said this while speaking to our correspondent on the telephone on Monday, stated that there was no time he said the two renowned preachers were fake pastors.
Akanbi said he was saddened by the stories posted by some online media and bloggers, which he believed were fabricated to pit him against the two men of God.
The monarch stated, “What they are saying is not true, I didn’t attack them. (Adeboye and Oyedepo). I did not say they are not men of God.
“I delivered a lecture organised by the City People Magazineand spoke about the functions of Obas in the 21st Century.
“I said Obas are the representatives of God on earth and men of God are messengers of God. That was where I think they twisted, but I never said they are not men of God.”
