In a now-viral video from his recent Sunday service, Ibiyeomie had threatened to arrest and kill Daddy Freeze over his criticism of David Oyedepo, the presiding bishop of Living Faith Church.

The cleric also described the OAP, whose real name is Ifedayo Olarinde, as a “bastard Somalia-born half-caste” in a comment that sparked debate and mixed reactions across social media.

Joining the fray of celebrities who have taken to social media to bare their thoughts on the threat, Akindoju described Ibiyeomi’s comment as wrong, adding that he misrepresented the scriptures.

“Meanwhile, I just watched the video of that pastor. It is wrong, SO WRONG! First as a supposed Christian, then as a leader, and finally as human being,” she wrote on Twitter.

“I’m even more shocked at the congregation echoing the insults. Please that is not what the Bible preaches, this is why it is important to know God for yourself.

“Read your bible yourself and don’t get blinded by religion. I am very ashamed for him only because he has misrepresented the gospel of Jesus. Proverbs 18 is a good scripture to meditate on today. Selah!”

During Ibiyeomie’s outburst, churchgoers had echoed his words in solidarity as he screamed: “I curse the day he (Freeze) was born, tell him. This should be the last time he’d talk about Oyedepo.”

In reaction, Freeze had said he didn’t understand why law enforcement agencies were yet to address the threat, calling on Nigerians to hold the cleric responsible if any harm befalls him.
