The general overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has come under serious attack by Nigerians for saying late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad reaped what he sowed.
Some Nigerians who were upset with the clergyman’s statement have taken to social media to register their displeasure.
Pastor Bakare should expect his reward for associating with APC
An X user (formerly Twitter) Akinwunmi Olumide, @Lumidee120, said Pastor Bakare should also get his reward for associating with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)

“If Mohbad's death was his reward for associating with "evil men", I guess Pst. Tunde Bakare should be expecting his reward for associating with APC.”
Church is not a tribunal to pass judgment
Another user @Morris_Monye said the church is not a place to pass judgement on people.
“My correspondence addressed to Pastor Tunde Bakare:
"Supposing that Jesus rendered the same judgement upon the prostitute as Pastor has upon Mohbad, would the prostitute have been inclined to repent from her transgressions?
The Church serves as a sanctuary for individuals who are shattered, wandering, and seeking guidance, not as a tribunal to pass judgment upon them.”
A Nigerian @XBrianDennis, said people will remind Pastor Bakare of bad company with looters and corrupt politicians if anything happens to him.
“Pastor Tunde Bakare keeps bad company with looters and corrupt politicians in APC.
If anything happens to him, we will remind him of the bad company he kept instead of focusing on what happened to him”
“Some in Pastor Tunde Bakare's congregation laughed at the end of that unsavoury rant of his.
The cruelty of the chest-thumpingly righteous, sometimes.
Bakare left Mohbad's other moniker, Imọlẹ️o.
Music's replete with stage names like Mohbad. Tell him.”
Tunde Bakare's actions are even more concerning to me than those of Naira Marley. I, SAMKLEF, was once a member of the Latter Rain Children's Choir in 1993, in one of the branches near Ikare Bus Stop, Agbado Oke Aro.
It deeply troubles me that when some pastors were gaining popularity and the love of the congregation, Tunde Bakare made the decision to shut down all the branches, seemingly to consolidate his control, instructing everyone to attend only the Ikeja branch. This behavior reminds me of the Pharisees that Jesus spoke about in the Bible – they simply rebranded their actions.
I firmly believe that SAMKLEF observes and understands everything that's happening.
