In his note to Ibiyeomie, Freeze wrote:
“I saw the above statement on the blogs. I am aware that blogs misquote people from time to time as I have been a victim myself, so if you didn’t make the above statement kindly make this known for clarity.
"However, if you did make the statement, I hereby invite you to a public doctrinal debate on tithing and why it is NOT for Christians, from my scriptural perspective.”

Daddy Freeze, others react as congregation locks church, sends pastor away
It was not the best of times for one pastor who headed a church in Ilorin, Kwara state as his members insisted he must leave.
A video circulating online showed congregants saying they have locked up the church to make sure the said pastor does not have access to it.
On what looked like a Sunday morning, members of the church were seen discussing in groups instead of worshipping inside. People who were dressed for the service were seen also walking around.
Daddy Freeze reacted to the development on social media.
