Popular Nigerian-Romanian broadcaster and socialite, Ifedayo Olarinde, a.k.a Daddy Freeze, has reacted to the revelation made by the general overseer of Power City International Church, Pastor Abel Damina, about the death of the famous Nigerian gospel singer Sammie Okposo, Njenje Media News reports.
Pastor Abel Damina, during his sermon in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, stated how the church took part in the death of Sammie Okposo.
Abel, who faulted the church for the singer’s death, said churches failed to offer support and encouragement to the singer during his sex scandal issue a few months ago.
He said, “When pastor Mattew Ashimolowo broke the news to me and I went on social media, I saw lots of RIP and what came to my mind is the cruelty of the church and the wickedness in the hearts of people that are in churches.
“Sammie was in a situation not too long ago, and all the church could do was to team up and denounce him, wound him, scandalize him, stop him from their churches without informing him, cancel his meetings, delete his number and shut him down.
”As far as the churches are concerned, he is now Satan. And the only organization on earth that wounded him is the church. A brother does something wrong. Instead of rallying around and restoring him, rebuke him in love and strengthen him.
”After his death, many are now saying what a loss, but you were the people that killed him. What kills a man fast is rejection,” he stated.
Reacting to Abel, in a post accompanied by the pastor’s photo on his Instagram page, Daddy Freeze wrote: “God bless you @abeldamina you are 250 percent correct! He is speaking the truth.”
