Lagos - General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is speaking out in defense of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) president, Ayo Oritsejafor over the seized $9.3 million meant for procurement of arms in South Africa.
Pastor Adeboye in a statement on his Facebook said, “Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor is a man of God I trust and I can personally vouch for him. I believe on the issue of his aircraft being chartered and the purpose it was used for he had no prior knowledge. I’m sure God will continue to build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail in Jesus name. One anointed cannot attack another anointed. A pastor cannot attack another pastor. Touch not my anointed is what God said. Some Nigerians have questioned the use of Pastor Oritsejafor’s private jet by the Federal Government to convey the money to South Africa, accusing him of involvement in money laundering.”Also read:Arms scandal: Okojie blasts Oritsejafor, Jonathan
