“Should anything whatsoever happens to me, I want you to hold Pastor Ibiyeomie responsible” —Daddy Freeze


Popular controversial radio presenter, Ifedayo Olarinde widely known as Daddy Freeze, has asked Nigerians to hold Founder and General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie accountable if anything evil happens to him. 

Daddy Freeze said this in response to the threats made by Pastor Ibiyeomie to arrest, tear and kill him for “insulting” Bishop David Oyedepo.

Ibiyeomie, while preaching in his church, threatened to kill Daddy Freeze and anyone, who insults his father in the Lord, Bishop Oyedepo.

In reaction, Daddy Freeze noted that “he did not insult Bishop Oyedepo but merely corrected him.”

He urged the police to call Pastor Ibiyeomie for questioning over the threat to his life.

He said that “freedom of speech does not give room for threat to life.”

Daddy Freeze in reaction said, “I also need to draw the attention of the public and the law enforcement to the threat of life that was issued to me in that video.”

He added, “Pastor Ibiyeomie, I don’t know if you know that threat to life is a criminal offence and let it be on the record that you threatened my life. Is this how Nigerians are going to accept this? If anything happens to me, I hope you know who to hold accountable.”

“Are we going to keep quiet and let this lie because it is coming from a pastor? If anything happens to me, should anything whatsoever happen to me, I want you to know who to hold responsible.”

Daddy Freeze also challenged pastors that “even with guns to his head, he will continue to correct the scriptures and clergies who disagree with him to an open debate.”

Daddy Freeze also asked Pastor Ibiyeomie to apologise for making a racist comment against him and demeaning the journalism profession.

In this regard, he said, “You went on again to undermine the noble profession of broadcasting. I’m a proud broadcaster for the last 25 years.”

“I’ve dedicated my life to this beautiful, noble profession. I have taken my children along with me to the radio to familiarise themselves with the radio hoping that one or two of them can fall in love with it.”

He added, “I think you should apologise to every journalist, every broadcaster, for undermining our work.”
