Leader of the Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry, SGTM, Okinni in Osun state, Seun Adeoye has cried out over the presence of heavily armed policemen in his residence on Sunday.
Recall that the Bishop staged a-one-man protest in May in Osogbo against the federal government’s removal of fuel subsidy and the resultant price hike of the premium motor spirit, otherwise known as petrol.
Adeoye raised the alarm in a statement issued yesterday, where he noted that the police visit to his home may not be unconnected with his critical assessment of the policies of both the federal government and those of the Governor Rauf Aregbesola-led administration in Osun state.
He stated that though the policemen did not harass him, their mission to his house was suspicious.
Adeoye said, “I belong to a class of people who will not close their eyes to injustice and maladministration. I cannot withstand government’s anti-democratic ethos in a society expected to treat its people equally.
“I cannot choose to be mute and deaf when people are hungry and dying because of bad economic policies.
“If saying the truth is an offence, I am ready to die for it. As I mentioned during my protest, things are becoming more difficult for Nigerians and our government appeared not to have answers to myriads of problems facing the nation. I said Nigeria is in chain and I have not been proved wrong.
