The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has reacted to the death of his kinsman Prophet Temitope Balogun better known as TB Joshua.
Gani Adams and the late T.B Joshua hailed from the Arigidi-Akoko community in Akoko North West Area of Ondo State and so they qualify to be kinsmen.
Adams described TB Joshua as a man who was a winner of souls and had the huge heart to accommodate anyone irrespective of the background.
In his words: “He was very humble, gentle and generous to a fault. His large-heartedness knows no tribe, colour, ethnicity, language or religion. He was simply a winner of souls even spreading beyond the shores of Nigeria.
“With his death, there had been an eclipse in God’s vineyard. Egbon lived a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.”
Meanwhile Adams has also condemned the killing of over 50 people in Igangan town, Ibarapa, Oke Ogun area of Oyo State by Fulani herdsmen and bandits. He condemned the attack and called for stronger surveillance across the southwest.
He said: “In a situation like this, you rise and defend yourself. Where are the police when the bandits started killing our people in Igangan today?
“Even the palace of Asigangan of Igangan land, Oba Adewuyi Olaoye, was not spared and the monarch, according to reports had been whisked away by the bandits.
“Three days ago, the Director-General of Oyo State Southwest Security Network Amotekun, Gen. Kunle Togun(Retd) raised the alarm that herdsmen had invaded the southwest.
“I corroborated his statements and called for urgent surveillance across the southwest. Now with the recent onslaught on Igangan people, it is evident that the Fulani herdsmen are on a predetermined mission to kill, maim and decimate the southwest.
