Pastors who have been on the attack against media personality, Daddy Freeze have been put on the spot after the critic apologized for his insults directed against Bishop David Oyedepo.
GWG recalls that Daddy Freeze has been in the news recently as Pastor Ibiyeomie the founder and senior pastor of Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt and Pastor Dr, Paul Eneche, Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre have both called out Daddy Freeze for his constant attacks on Bishop Oyedepo. Pastor Ibiyeomie had called Daddy Freeze a “Somali bastard” and Dr Eneche had called the media personality a mad dog with bipolar.
Also, a recent video emerged online where Daddy Freeze was seen insulting Bishop Oyedepo. This video made the popular broadcaster apologize.
However, his apology has elicited another issue on social media as some Nigerians feel that Pastor Ibiyeomie should also apologize too and that pastors overreacted to the issue.
GWG presents some of their views below:
Kelvin Odanz@MrOdanz wrote: “All of you have Pastors today because of men like Martin Luther who stood up to the almighty pope and the doctrines of the Catholic church. If Daddy Freeze (a Christian) criticizes your Pastor, focus more on the context of his criticism and not defending your almighty pastor.”
Ayekooto@DeeOneAyekooto wrote: “All those Pastors that were attacking and cursing GMB for ages, including their Bishop who, on the altar, called GMB the borrowed ‘man from Sudan’ (implying that real GMB was dead in London) without GMB uttering a word talkless of calling them names in anger or retaliation are now mad at Daddy Freeze for merely making jest of one of them. You see life and how God can use the most stupid thing of this world to confound the so called wise? Now tell me, whose response, to unkind attacks, between GMB and these guys, can be described as Christlike?”

Biggest problem facing Nigerian Christians for the past 4days now is Daddy Freeze. Not the incessant killing of Christians across the nation. Not the hiking price in fuel pump. Not the excessive power supply tariff. Not the increase in unemployment. Not the deathtrap roads.”

On this, you have done well. Hopefully, others who engaged in attacks on personality rather than issues will.”
