Crisis rocks RCCG as Pastor Adeboye allegedly plans to replace Pastor Iluyomade with his son

It has just been revealed that all the noise on the social media about Dr Siju’s 60th Birthday was planned and executed by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, with the alleged knowledge of the General Overseer of the RCCG , Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

The RCCG authorities are said to be allegedly desperately planning to remove Pastor Idowu Iluyomade and his wife ,Dr Siju Iluyomade. Pastor Iluyomade is the Pastor of City of David, COD, Parish and Head of Apapa Family. And he is said to be solidly supported by his brilliant Lawyer and wife, Dr Siju.

The glamorous party reportedly by some RCCG big wigs was an excuse, though pedestrian, to tackle her and her husband as they claimed the grand celebration was too loud and that RCCG is a modest church.

Many surprised by this development simply asked, “Modest ? When the G.O and his men use Helicopter to land on the Trinity Tower’s Helipad at the same City of David. What could be louder “, they asked.

Reliable sources stated categorically that some top RCCG members actually wrote and used journalists and bloggers to release to the press, all the publications about Dr Siju’s glamorous 60th birthday and the only purpose according to these reliable sources is to remove her and her husband and take over the magnificent 14 storey Trinity Towers built by COD parish and allegedly hand it over to Adeboye’s son who will convert it to RCCG Headquarters, Worldwide with him presiding over the edifice.

Said Dr Olumuyiwa Babafemi, a multi-millionaire business magnate who described himself as a quiet member of the RCCG, “The plan to take over the Trinity Towers started that very day the G.O landed on the helipad on top of that tower. The profile, respect and achievements of the G.O went sky high that day. It was simply unbelievable. The whole Redeemed parishes worldwide and people all over Nigeria, Africa and across the world stood still for COD and the G.O. But my brother, envy also sneaked in that day. Pastor Adeboye came to love Pastor ID and his wife, Dr Siju, so much and was so proud of them. But what you are seeing now is the height of that greed and envy inspired by Trinity Towers. Unfortunately, the G.O that loved them so much allegedly caved in to pressure from destroyers, men who have built nothing for RCCG. It is painful. For me, Daddy G.O would have betrayed this his own dedicated couple, if he allows hypocrites, the Judases of his church to create what will be a monumental fiasco for our great RCCG family. I feel sad.”

Another source alleged that all the frivolous writing and noise about Dr Siju’s party was to get the G.O to act. “But the traitors weren’t going to succeed because, there was no substance in those hogwash and City of David is bonded like a family.” There is this love that shines in COD”, Dr Babafemi continues. “And it is that love that binds them strongly. You know Pastor ID and Dr Siju are unbelievably kind, laugh freely and have listening ears for everyone no matter how small and very compassionate. No one goes to them and returns empty”. That’s why Dr Siju’s things are always huge, whether it is Arise or birthday. Trust me, you can’t just push them aside”, the business man from Lagos state added matter of factly.

Another highly regarded member of the RCCG affirmed that some unnamed Pastors and highly placed members of COD have expressed deep concern about the G.O’s rumoured plan to install his son and warned that any decision to unjustly remove Pastor ID and Dr Siju from COD may spell unprecedented crisis that may shake the very foundation of RCCG.

Prof Damilola, a US based Redeemed member who declined to give his full name also warned that City of David members love their Pastor and Dr Siju passionately and committed humungous amount of their financial resources to build the Trinity Towers in support of their Pastor’s vision to build a magnificent house for God. In his words, “That Trinity Towers is the vision of their Pastor although he gives Adeboye credit for everything he does. He never takes any credit. Too humble and too committed to G.O’s vision and now they want to cast him aside. Even Dr Siju has attracted global attention to RCCG with her Arise Women’s Conference because she remains a member of the RCCG. So, COD will never tolerate or accept any decision to yank off their beloved Pastors from that building for no serious breach of the church rules or crime.

Certainly not because of the noise over Dr Siju’s party, it will never happen. They will resist it with everything. Mark my word today”, he stressed.

Indeed, the rumour about handing over COD and Trinity Towers to Adeboye’s son has already permeated the City of David Parish congregation and this has allegedly strengthened their resolve to stand solidly behind their Pastor and his dear wife, Dr Siju.

The news all over RCCG parishes now is that Adeboye was handed RCCG by the Founder and General Superintendent, late Josiah Akindayomi, who hailed from Ondo state despite having his own family. But now, the G.O wants to allegedly victimise Pastor ID, his loyal son in order to hand over RCCG to his own son from Osun state, they lamented.

This writer however gathered that some Elders and senior Pastors of the church are trying frantically to meet with the General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to resolve the simmering crisis and save the church from a clearly possible implosion.

Meanwhile, all our efforts to get both the Adeboyes and Iluyomades to react proved above, prior to publishing.
