The popular monarch who believes in liberty for all in terms of religion disclosed his household worshipped idols before his father put a stop to it and brought the message of Christ.
“As a matter of fact, God used my late father, High Chief Paul Abiodun Adeniji, to destroy the idols we used to worship in our family. We worshipped Obatala and Sango here before , but my father abolished it and started the message of Christ.
“That’s not to say I’m against anyone’s faith in my town. No, everyone is free to practise his faith without any hindrance. What you believe in is a personal thing.
“In fact, when they want to do their thing they come here and I will give them money as support, but I also use the opportunity to preach Christ to them. During the Ramadan period , I fast and pray with Muslims. I also ensure that I organise for them to break their fast here. We also organise Ramadan lecture here,” he said.
