Controversial OAP, Ifedayo Olarinde, better known as Daddy Freeze, has advised Nigerian General Overseers of churches to refund to their followers the tithes they paid within the last 12 months.
According to them this would serve to mitigate the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on them.
Freeze gave the advice on Sunday while sharing screenshot of a news report about how a US church refunded her members three years of tithes.
According to him, Church leaders should give back one year of tithes to their members so they have something to eat.
He wrote: “Dear Nigerian GOs, I suggest that you kindly look into this and refund the tithes of the last one year, no need for 3 years, so your people can have meat on their tables from the ‘storehouse of God’.
“Those who collected tithes with Malachi 3:8-10 should in the same vein, bring out the meat from God’s storehouse so the people may eat and not die, God bless you all! ~FRZ”
Recall that the founder of Living Faith Church popularly known as Winners Chapel, Bishop Davido Oyedepo, has kicked against the revised lockdown directives which sidelined religious centres.
His protest followed relaxation of the lockdown in Lagos, Abuja and the Federal Capital Territory by President Muhammadu Buhari, which allowed partial movement and commercial activities but maintained the ban on religious gatherings.
Oyedepo further declared that whoever does not want to see the church back on its feet would die for it, adding that spiritual famine was far more devastating and that it was what the devil was looking for.
The Bishop then said that no one had he answer to a problem except Jesus and that the church of Christ on earth was vibrating.
