Adeboye under fire for ‘taking sides’ in Israel-Hamas conflict

Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has come under fire from netizens for offering prayers to Israel amid its war with Hamas in Palestine. 

On October 7, Hamas, a political and militant movement currently governing the Gaza strip of the Palestinian territory, infiltrated Israel and unleashed an unprecedented attack that resulted in the death of over 150 Israelis.

In a goodwill message titled: “Special message to the nation of Israel”, Adeboye said all the members of the RCCG are praying for Israel to have “absolute victory” in the ongoing conflict.

“The almighty God, the only one of Israel, will give you absolute victory and give you permanent peace from now on in the mighty name of Jesus,” Adeboye had prayed  in a video clip shared on the church’s page on X.

“It is going to be well with you. We pray that this war would be the one that would be end of all wars.”

Criticising Adeboye’s message, netizens said the conflict between Israel and Hamas has nothing to do with religion but crisis over ownership of land.

Others said the general overseer may not understand the plight of the Palestinians in the ongoing war, while some accused him of neutrality during political and security tensions in Nigeria.
