Adeboye, Oyakhilome at war over a parcel of land

There’s currently an ongoing war between two respected clerics, Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Christ Embassy over a parcel of land located along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
It has been gathered that the two men of God are battling over a portion of land, which spread across Oloke, Asese, Maba and Gideon Villages in Ogun State and have been engaging in war of words.
Reliable sources around the area said that, in March, this year; there was a big fracas between mercenaries of the two churches on the controversial land where some reportedly lost their lives.
We learnt that the Christ Embassy’s thugs were led by one Lukman Jimoh, popularly known as Ogo Oluwa and they drove to the place in a Volvo Car and Toyota Hiace Bus.
Our findings revealed that, the RCCG has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, and asked him to wade into the matter, which is almost going out of hand.
RCCG in the petition, a copy made available to an online magazine called orijoreporter, while recounting how they came about the property, said that despite the fact that the land falls under the government acquisition area, the church had in June 1999 paid ratification fees for the land to the late Alhaji Tajudeen Ogoluwa (Lukman’s father) who gave the church a Deed of Surrender, signed by him and witnessed by one Waidi Ogunsesan.
The church added that it was also given allocation of the land for 99 years by the Ogun State Government in a letter signed by the Director-General, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Surveyor Gbenga Ogunnoike.
RCCG also alleged that Ogun State Government issued a Certificate of Occupancy with the number 025748, dated November 7, 2006 and signed by the governor.
The IG, it was gathered, directed the Eleweran Police Headquarter in Ogun State to resolve the matter between the two men of God, Pastor Adeboye and Pastor Oyakhilome.
