“He has done nothing wrong by allowing tradition to take its due course,” Sade Omotoso wrote in a contrary view on Facebook.

In a lengthy reaction, a popular commentator on Facebook, Tayo Ikotun, wrote; “I remember when one pastor who tragically lost his wife and later remarried was being questioned by journalists on why his new wife gave birth to their first child just 6 months after they got wed and this child ,rather than being lodged in an incubator was carrying on jejeli like his colleagues that did the normal 9 months in mama’s belly.

Our friend was short of words. He couldn’t come up with any logical lies to dispel the rumor that there had been ‘collaborations’ between him and his new bride before they were joined together as husband and wife. Meanwhile, his deceased wife, until she breathed her last never stopped preaching against knacking before marriage!!

“Pictured here is an Ogbomosho high priest and his assistant chanting incantations to exorcize the ‘holy spirit from the body of Pastor Gandhi Olaoye in order to create space for awon Igba irunmole! We’re waiting to hear from his majesty what will certainly be a bla bla blu blu bla kind of defense after the storm has settled.

“Indeed, he who laughs last, laughs the best!”
