The newly installed Soun of Ogbomoso, Ghandi Laoye, a former pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God has sparked reactions from netizens following the announcement of the seven days spiritual rites he must undergo.
Ghandi Laoye based in the United States was installed as the new Soun of Ogbomoso in Oyo State on Friday.
This move follows the vacancy in the Soun of Ogbomoso stool, left by the passing of Oba Jimoh Oyewumi on December 12, 2021.
Traditionally, the new monarch will undergo a seven-day seclusion period, after which he will receive the staff of office from the state government.
Laoye’s decision to step down as a pastor and hand over his pastoral responsibilities to Pastor Olumide Ogunjuyigbe was in accordance with the instruction of the RCCG General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
The installation process was initiated by the Ogbomoso kingmakers, who began performing the traditional rites on Prince Afolabi Olaoye to officially install him as the new Soun of Ogbomoso.
However, this news did not go well for some netizens due to Laoye’s previous religious status as a pastor to be involved in traditional practices.

@omoelerinjare: “RCCG pastor will spend 7 days in the Shrine for traditional rights, there will be curfew, and Anyone caught wondering during this period will be killed as part of his traditional right. Then he will be installed as the Soun of Ogbomosho. Later on Sunday he will go to RCCG headquarters for Thanksgiving.”

@DeinmoweiEzi: “Hahaha, the God of heaven and the god of the Shrine are now sleeping in the same bed😂😂😂😂 Only RCCG can make this possible 👏👏👏👏😂😂😂😂😂”
@DemperorGC: “God over religion.. you need an encounter with God himself to know the difference, Saul had the same encounter. You left God and be calling a pastor Daddy. Shame.”
@cute_pecky: “I’m just looking at the hands he will lay on people’s head to prophesy. Sigh Deuteronomy 4:28-31”
@Ugochukwu_96: “Chai 😂 God have mercy on his church and his pastors 😭🙏….”
@AGINAS: “This guy was never called by God, he has gone back to his owner. RCCG is an occultic coven. Know this and know peace.”
@Mykoladoo: “Many belong to the Ogboni confraternity And aside that if you watch the front role carefully in the redeem camp it always comprises the kings, chief, and traditional rulers cus many of them are called to serve God too and it’s biblical. The are close to the people and they reign over people.”
@ugwu_obinn: “And with his first fruits as well See how Christianity became a myth in their hands.”
@PeterObiUpdates: “Kîlling people because of tradition? Ha.”
@Denis28892314: “RCCG they practice Christianity abi na occult.”
@Chukwumaeze: “Traditional stools should be left for traditionalists. Christians are supposed to be seeking the kingdom of heaven. The quest for wealth and power has beclouded christians from their calling. Serving God and gods.”
