Battle Looms Between Pastors Adeboye, Oyakhilome!

There is palpable tension in Christendom as the land dispute between Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy is about to escalate.

The fear is predicated on the rumored plan of Christ Embassy to commence the development of the vast land which spreads across Oloke, Asese, Maba and Gideon villages along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State.

Oyakhilome’s men reportedly mounted their bill on the contentious land days back. A move insiders said would spark off another round of war between the two very popularPentecostal churches. Having done this without a challenge from RCCG, ENCOMIUM Weekly was told that Christ Embassy will, any moment from now, do the ground breaking ceremony of their camp ground which had been delayed for year as a result of the protracted case.

Contacted on Sunday, July 13, 2014, to confirm or debunk if the land tussle has been resolved amicably, an official of RCCG, Pastor Kunmi Oyekunle said the matter is still on.

He said Christ Embassy cannot lay claim to the disputed land since it doesn’t belong to them.

But reacting to the recent development, Christ Embassy told our reporter it was immaterial whether or not they have started developing their property. What is important, according to them is that the land belongs to the church that is now in almost all the continents in the world.

“I don’t know the purpose of this phone chat. What is important is that we have a land there (at the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway). Whenever we are ready, we would build our camp ground there,” the Christ Embassy’s official, Pastor Kenneth said.

In March 2013, there was a big fracas between ‘mercenaries’ of the two leadingPentecostal churches on the controversial land where some allegedly lost their lives.
