Abacha had planned to eliminate me – Pastor Adeboye

Chidi Samuel

The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church this morning while preaching at the ongoing convention of the church with the Theme;” Complete Restoration” at the Redeem camp, km 46 Lagos- Ibadan Express way, revealed to a shocked congregation how Nigeria’s late Head of State, General Sani Abacha had planned to have him killed before his eventual date in 1998. According to Pastor Adeboye, the herbalists praying for the late Head of State had informed him that his plan to transmute from a military Head of State to civilian President was not going to work because there was a ”certain man of God at the camp” praying against the plan. They there therefore advised Abacha to ”take care of the man of God” if he wants to succeed.

Continuing, Pastor Adeboye said when Abacha gave the go ahead for his men to come after him, words reached him that they were coming for him but that same night while having a walk at the redeem camp, the Lord spoke to him and told him not to be afraid because the situation had been taken care of. Pastor Adeboye went on to inform the congregation that the Tuesday before Abacha’s death, he was conducting a service when God asked him to tell the congregation to say Happy New Year to each other at the end of the service. Suprised by his directive because it was the month of June, the congregation did as he directed. By the following Monday, however, the the feared Military dictator had died mysteriously and according to Pastor, Adebayo it was indeed a New Year and a New beginning for the Country.
