As the remains of former Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, the late Most Revd Abiodun Adetiloye were Friday committed to mother earth at his Odo-Owa country home, Arch Bishop, Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria, Most Revd Nicholas Okoh decried acquisition of wealth among religious leaders, a development he said had robbed the country of its core values.
Delivering a special sermon during the funeral service for Adetiloye who died on December 14, 2012, held at St Paul’s Millennium Anglican Church, Odo-Owa-Ekiti, Bishop Okoh lamented that corruption had eaten deep into the fabrics of religious leaders, who were expected to preach the gospel of Jesus to the people.
Dignitaries who graced the burial include wife of the Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, former Governor of Western State, General Adeyinka Adebayo, his son and first civilian Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, former Governors Ayo Fayose and Segun Oni, and the Director General of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Mr Femi Ajayi among others.
Read it all.
