Adeboye disclosed this through a tweet on Thursday, saying all the eight members have been freed and have been taken to hospital for examination.
Meganews had reported that eight members of RCCG’s Region 30 Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna, were attacked and abducted by gunmen on March 26, near Doka along the Kachia-Kafanchan Road, on their way to a church programme in Kafanchan.
The abductors had demanded N50 million in ransom. However, the General-Overseer didn’t disclose whether the church paid a ransom or not.
Adeboye tweeted, “Today I got the exciting news that our brethren who were in captivity of kidnappers have all been released and taken to the hospital for checkup and tests. Glory be to Jesus. We pray for lasting peace in all troubled regions of the country in Jesus name.”
Pastor Foluke Adeboye, wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Friday paid a condolence visit to the Senior Pastor of Trinity House, Ituah Ighodalo, over the death of his wife, Ibidun.
She shared a picture of the visit on Instagram and prayed for strength for the family to bear the loss.
“My thoughts & prayers are with the families of @pastorituahighodalo & @ibidunni_ighodalo this period. God will continue to strengthen and uphold them in Jesus name,” Adeboye wrote.
Pastor Ighodalo left the RCCG to start his own church following his unpopular decision to marry the late Ibidun after seeing a divorce through.
Ibidun, however, died of suspected cardiac arrest on June 14 in her hotel room in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
The late former beauty queen was in Port Harcourt to set up a coronavirus isolation centre.
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has warned that he would kill anyone who touches his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye.
Pastor Adeboye, fondly called ‘daddy G.O’ said people are free to slap, criticize or lie against him, but to do such against his wife, he would kill the person.
The cleric enjoined couples to be ready to lay down their lives for their partner.
He spoke during Sunday service on message titled “Activating Your Destiny” at the National Headquarters of RCCG, Throne of Grace Parish, Ebute Meta, Lagos.
He said, “Be ready to lay down your life for your partner if you’re truly in love. My wife doesn’t like me saying this.
“You can slap me; you can lie against me, you can criticise me, it doesn’t bother me, but touch my wife, I’ll kill you!“I want the world to hear. They’ll say if I killed, they’ll arrest me, jail me, that is if I killed with cutlass or gun.
“If you tamper with my wife, I will talk to my Daddy and you’ll sleep and will not wake.
“If you want to marry a person who’s influential, marry a pastor. If he does not fall into sin, he’ll remain a pastor forever.
“Marry for love. It’ll endure. I’ve been married for 50 years and still on honeymoon. I was the poorest among those lurking around the girl I married.
“One was a lawyer who had a car; I had nothing. But I told the girl that if you marry me, whatever I am, wherever I ever become, will be yours.
“I was not a Christian, but i was an incurable optimist. We struggled over ‘pomo’ as I usually hear me say, but today if we want to eat a cow now, God will provide.
“After our wedding in September 8, 1967, we faced challenges. The baby came 1968. It was tough. We were happy because we were in love.
“I had no car, no house, a marriage into a rented room and a parlour. We have stories to tell. If you marry for love, the reason it will last is because God is love.
“You must continue to tend the fire, meaning: no matter how little, you must constantly give gifts to your partner. If it’s given in love, it’ll be appreciated.
“When two people are in love, they exchange gifts. Always open your mouth to say to your partner “I love you.”
