On Wednesday, April 6, Leke Adeboye, one of the sons of the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s general overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, was forced to confront a three-man panel for his recent statement referring to some of the church’s pastors as goats.
On Tuesday, April 5, Leke posted on his Instagram profile, criticising pastors who offer their own sermons on the first Sunday of each month after his father must have presented one that was aired across the country.
In response to this development, Leke writes in his blog post:
“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”
After passionately and arrogantly stating that he would not apologise for offending senior pastors of the church, Leke was forced to stand before a three-man panel on Wednesday, which included his father-in-law, and was asked never to make such statements again.
“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 members of the panel is his father-in-law.
He arrogantly told off the panel that he cannot apologise. And what did they do? They only told him to not repeat it again”sources within the church were quoted as saying
Leke has now removed the photo from his Instagram profile and has not publicly apologised to the pastors.
