Eyin temi, ni agbara Olorun, ao ni foju sunkun ara wa ooooo (My people, by the grace of God, we will not mourn ourselves).
He highlighted the length people spreading death rumours about him often go to make their lies look real. According to him, most times, the peddlers go as far as putting the corpse of someone else side by side his picture and circulate it.
“By Gods grace I declare death and darkness into the lives of those that wish me dead over and over. I am not angry but just making declarations to those that have been circulating rumours of my death.”
