The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has placed curses on the killers of traditional rulers in Nigeria.
The renowned cleric made this disclosure on Friday night during the church’s monthly Holy Ghost Service programme tagged, ‘From The Mountain Top 2’.
Adeboye said those trying to mess around with monarchs in the country won’t know peace.
“The fire of God will consume all those trying to mess around with our traditional rulers.
“Because as far as God is concerned, traditional rulers are anointed,” said Adeboye, the convener of an annual convention for royal fathers in the country.
Two traditional rulers, identified as the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Samuel Olushola; and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Ogunsakin, were killed by gunmen suspected to be bandits.
They were killed on Monday while returning from a security meeting in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Some pupils and teachers were also kidnapped in the interconnected attacks with the gunmen staging a comeback on Thursday with the merciless murder of the Olukoro of Koro, General Segun Aremu (retd), in the Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State.
The retired army General was shot dead at his palace on Thursday night.
Koro is the adjoining town to Ikole Ekiti where two traditional rulers were murdered on Monday. The two towns share farm boundaries, raising concerns over the menacing dimension of the killing of traditional rulers by stone-hearted gunmen.
Security agencies including the police have deployed a chopper and armoured carriers to Ekiti and have vowed to apprehend the perpetrators and make then face the full wrath of law while Nigerians continue to demand swift justice and an end to the kidnapping and killing epidemic in the country
