On Sunday, September 6, Pastor David Ibiyeomie threatened to murder Nigerian media personality, Daddy Freeze following his response to Bishop David Oyedepo‘s perspective on marriage.
The video of Pastor Ibiyeomie threatening the controversial OAP on pulpit went viral on social media on Monday.
Pastor Ibiyeomie called Freeze a bastard and said a number of other things as he insulted the media personality; who is known for tackling prosperity preachers.
Reacting via his YouTube channel, Freeze accused Ibiyeomie of racism, discrimination and threat to life.
Daddy Freeze began in his response, “Even if you have a gun to my head, I’ll still speak the truth”
He said he was “devastated” by Pastor Ibiyeomie’s video because of the “content” and he went on to reveal what troubled him about the content.
Furthermore, Freeze said he didn’t insult Bishop Oyedepo as Pastor Ibiyeomie claimed, but simply drew the religious leader’s attention to a part of the bible.
“Correcting the scripture is not an insult. Christ was criticized; Peter was criticized.
”Paul was criticized, even the Pharisees were criticized; so there’s no way you’re going to preach a message from the scriptures that you’ll not get criticisms.”
Condemning Ibiyeomie for likening him to the Somalians in a derogatory manner; Freeze said;
“I find it very devastating that just to get to me, Pastor Ibieomie will drag the whole Somalia nation.
”I’m very proud to associate myself with Somalians because they’re a beautiful people.
”It is hate speech to undermine them with derogatory words, like there’s anything wrong with the Somalians.”
Equally important, Freeze drew the attention of the public and the law enforcement agencies to the threat to his life.
In the latter part of his speech, Daddy Freeze corrected Pastor Ibiyeomie’s statement about the broadcasting profession.
Specifically, he condemned the preacher for undermining the field.
“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…”
Meanwhile, Freeze said he takes his children to the radio station to watch him work; with the hope that one or two would take over the profession. He added that broadcasting isn’t something to be ashamed of.
“I think you should apologize to every journalist, every broadcaster; for undermining our work,‘ Freeze told Ibiyeomie.
Reacting to being called a “half-caste” by the pastor, Freeze said the word “half-caste” is “racist” and he asked that Ibiyeomie apologizes to victims of racism.
On being called a “bastard” by Ibiyeomie, Freeze said: “You say I’m not my father’s son. I put it to you to prove who my real father is.”
As a matter of fact, Daddy Freeze has remained one of the few OAPs who has probed Nigerian pastors.
