The Book of Mathew, Chapter 7 Verse 21, in the holy book says, “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven’. This verse among other verses in the Bible confirms the existence of false prophets on the surface of the earth. However, the dominant presence of these false prophets has made it even more difficult to identify genuine prophets from the numerous fakes that litter this part of the world.
Even without any visit to other parts of the world, with what we see around us in Nigeria, one can boldly say that arguably, big or small, Nigeria has the highest number of churches in the world. Whether or not these churches are being shepherd by genuine prophets is a million naira question.
Expectedly, all of them claims to be genuine but, as directly by the holy spirit in the scriptures, John Chapter 4 Verse 1, ‘Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone into the world’.
These Bible verses were not included last night; they have been part of the scriptures since inception. Despite these warnings, Nigerians in their millions continue to fall prey to these unscrupulous elements that have become more visible with their undying thirst for money and material things. More of their characteristics include seeking power to manipulate people (members) by all means, adultery and fornication.
One of such prophets who perfectly fit into the status of the end-time Pastors is one Pastor Adewale Adeola.
Adewale, a very popular prophet within Sango, on the outskirt of Ogun state capital, Abeokuta, according to information obtained by thegazellenews.com has in the last 10 months abandoned his third wife with two kids and absconded with another woman.
Adewale’s action is not new to those who know him very well within Sango and Ijoko environments where he had previously fathered three kids from two different mothers before he met his third wife, Nike, who also had given Adewale his fourth and fifth children.
Before his last action which has generated so much heat in the area, Adewale started with his first wife, who produced two kids before he called it quit with her. He moved on to another woman who ended up with one child. After he (Adewale) saw off two women and sending them into the wilderness with two and one children respectively, he was able to convince innocent Nike as the best man for her.
His (Adewale’s) romance with Nike, which started in early 2009 producing one child, was on until April 2013 when Adewale abandoned their home in Sango.
Information available to thegazellenews.com revealed that, Initially, Adewale was always coming home after three or four weeks, but these were ploys to move out some of his belongings.
This medium gathered that by the time Adewale came back into the house this January, his wife was left with only the rug and chairs as all other household electronics items, generator and even water dispenser have been relocated by her husband.
Thegazellenews.com investigation revealed that Adewale’s homecoming this January was as a result of the birth of his last child which occurred on New Year day, January 1st. We gathered that he came around briefly after the birth of his last child and returned on January 8 for the naming of the child.
Our investigation on the whereabouts of this father of five revealed that, in his usual style, Adewale has moved in with another woman who resides in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
Like other women (victims) in the past, the new woman named Omolola Bolarinde is not aware of Adewale’s escapades. She’s been savouring the joy of meeting her heartthrob since last year. Omolola Bolarinde who has also been reported pregnant has been celebrating her newly found love on popular social network, facebook since last year.
When thegazellenews.com probed into the personality of Pastor Adewale Adeola who is popularly known as Baba Testimony (Father of Testimony) by his numerous fans on radio, our reporter was told he is the same prophet that thousands of people fuel their generator or buy new batteries into their transistor radios to listen to every Wednesdays on Paramount FM Abeokuta.
‘Baba Testimony’ as he is fondly called is a regular guest on a radio programme at Paramount FM and his followership and fanbase are viral. He proclaims anointing on radio and speaks with authority.
After every appearance on the radio show, the presenter allows ‘Baba Testimony’ to drop his phone number for the listeners. By so doing, ‘Baba Testimony’ receives calls from various people throughout the week, claiming to solve spiritual problems.
It was also revealed that, most of his victims are people who called to solve one problem or the other. We were told that at different occasions, ‘Baba Testimony’ has started his Testimony Ministry as a church in different parts of Sango/Ijoko areas of Ogun state but, the effort has always been truncated by his penchant for sleeping with church members.
One of such escapades, we were told, was when he started a church at Idi-Obi bus stop along Agbado-Ijoko road, we were told the church was growing fast until Adewale’s appetite for anything in skirt killed the morale of members. The church we were told died a natural death.
