Dignitaries Recall Adetiloye’s War Against Occultism, Military

Funeral rites of former Primate of Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Abiodun Adetiloye, started in Ado Ekiti on Thursday with dignitaries recalling how he fought military dictatorship and destroyed Ogboni Fraternity within the church.

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi, at a ceremony at Adetiloye Hall, described the late Primate as Nigeria’s version of Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa.

Adetiloye, the governor said, fought hard against military dictatorship, which was the reason, many referred to him as NADECO Bishop.

Fayemi said, “He was a man of immense spiritual and moral authority. At a time against the military dictatorship, Adetiloye never ceased to speak truth. He was our own version of Desmond Tutu. He was committed to his God and to his people; he lived well, served and died well.”

The incumbent Primate of the church, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, said Adetiloye fought hard to ensure that he destroyed Ogboni Fratenity in the church.

Okoh, who narrated how an occult member stood up during a church service and challenged a clergyman, also recalled how the evangelism initiated by the late Primate brought life into the church.

The Primate also recalled the hard stance of the late Adetiloye against homosexuality at Lambeth conference, which he said, had become a cornerstone of the church.
