Social media aide to the president Lauretta Onochie has called on the police to invite Pastor David Ibiyeomie for questioning over the threats made to broadcaster Daddy Freeze.
Ibiyeomie, the founder of Port-Harcourt based Salvation Ministries, had on Sunday during a sermon said he would “deal with” Freeze if he ever insults his “father” David Oyedepo again, calling the broadcaster a “bastard”.
Mrs Onochie in a tweet on Friday said the cleric’s conduct was not Christian-like, concluding that the police need to act on the issue.
“THIS IS EVIL. I am a Christian. I have been watching this absurdity for days now, looking for any attribute of Christ in it. I haven’t seen any,” she wrote.
“Among others, threatening to kill someone is a crime. I’m not sure if this requires a petition to the @PoliceNG before they act. EVIL!”
Daddy Freeze had responded a day after the video went viral, saying: “I was very devastated by that video because of the content thereof. I didn’t insult Bishop David Oyedepo. He quoted from the book of Ephesians 5:22 and I drew his attention to verse 21. Correcting scripturally is not an insult.
“I find it very devastating that just to get to me, Pastor Ibiyeomie would drag the whole Somalian nation. I’m very proud to associate myself with Somalians and Somalia because they are a beautiful people, beautiful Africans like you and I. It is hate speech to undermine them with derogatory words.”
