Cleric denies hiring thugs to attack property owners in Lagos
Founder, End Time Heavenly Revival Ministries, Pastor Femi Adebayo has denied hiring thugs to attack property owners in Ayobo Community, in Lagos State.
The cleric was reacting to a report that he and members of Olalore family in Ayobo, allegedly hired hoodlums to attack property owners in the community.
Adebayo said he has not at any time attack residents or have any intention to do so, labeling the allegations as false and concocted to malign his person and ministry.
While calling for a thorough investigation into the matter, Adebayo said all those making the accusation against him must seek forgiveness from God.
He said: “On September 12, someone called to inform me that there was a publication accusing me of sending hoodlums to Ayobo community. I was shocked to hear that.
“The allegation is totally false. I’ve never sent anybody to attack another human. I don’t have any business with anybody in Ayobo, why are they making allegations against me that I sent thugs to attack people. This is an attempt to tarnish my image and the ministry God has laid in my hands.
“I urge the authorities to investigate this matter properly and ensure that whatever mystery there is unravelled.”
Adebayo added that he has asked his lawyer to take legal action if the media outfit that ran the report failed to retract the story.
The head of Olalore family, Alhaji Ambali backed Adebayo on refuting the allegations, saying the cleric knows nothing about the report, but that it was the work of mischief-makers who want to spoil his name.
