By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Anyone caught dressed indecently within the premises of Redemption Camp in Ogun State will now be arrested by security guards, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has declared.

Speaking on Saturday morning at the annual Ministers’ Thanksgiving held at the 3×3 Auditorium at the camp, Pastor Adeboye also said any parent of the apprehended person dressed in unholy manner would be arrested too.

He therefore warned parents not to allow their wards dress in ways not pleasing to God.

The cleric described the Redemption Camp as a holy ground, which should not be messed up by immorality.

“The entire camp is a church and everything at the Redemption Camp revolves around the auditorium.

“The way you can’t dress to the church, don’t dress so in the camp. If you are caught indecently dressed in the camp, you’ll be arrested.

“Parents should warn their children because if you dress indecently in the camp, they’ll be arrested.

“And when their parents come to bail them, they’ll be arrested, too. This is holy ground. Why? Because God is always walking in the midst of His people.

“As far as I’m still around, anyone who wants to destroy this camp will be dealt with,” Pastor Adeboye told the church’s ministers.

Speaking further, the man of God fondly called Daddy G.O., warned members of the church peddling fake news, especially about the mission to desist from such.

He said it was totally untrue that RCCG received some money from the federal government, urging those who spread the rumour to report to him immediately or face the music.

The respected cleric further said those who shared the ‘fake news’ to send letters of apology to him because they have sinned against the Holy Spirit.
