How God revealed Osinbajo’s chopper crash to me – Adeboye
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worldwide has revealed how God told him in advance of the helicopter crash in Kogi State in which Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and others were saved.
The incident happened on Saturday, February 2 this year ahead of the general elections. He disclosed this at the ongoing Convention of the church with the theme: ‘And God Said’. 86 babies comprising 45 boys and 41 baby girls were delivered of during the convention.
According to Adeboye, while he was in his prayer room preparing for the February Holy Ghost Service, a monthly power-packed vigil of the church, the Lord told him that Vice President Osinbajo’s life was in danger and that he should pray for him. Osinbajo, whom Adeboye referred to as his son, was a senior pastor at RCCG before becoming Nigeria’s vice president.
Adeboye who refrained from giving details of his conversation with God said he waited for Osinbajo to arrive at the camp that Friday night so he could pray for him before he could begin his ministration “but he came late”.
However, after the vigil, precisely in the morning of Saturday, February 2, he prayed a prayer of protection for Osinbajo. He recalls the incident: “I found myself repeating these same words – Lord protect your son – and I said it four times.”
Recall that on that same day, Saturday, February 2, Osinbajo escaped death as his helicopter crash-landed in Kogi State. All the occupants of the helicopter were also saved in the crash which video recording trended at that time.
His spokesperson, Laolu Akande, announced the crash in a tweet thus: “VP Osinbajo’s Chopper crash lands in Kabba, but he and the entire crew safe. He is continuing with his engagements and plans for the day in Kogi State.”
It was the second time Osinbajo’s helicopter would crash-land.
In June 2017, he survived a similar accident when the chopper he was traveling in crash-landed shortly after take off in Gwagawalada, a suburb of Abuja. He was in the area council to attend the graduation of 40 senior officers of the Nigeria Customs Service.
