ABEOKUTA—Apparently reacting to the impending take-over of a large parcel of land owned by his church  for the proposed Divine Grace University, the Primate of the Church of the Lord, Aladura, Worldwide, Dr. Rufus Ositelu, yesterday, cried out, saying that the Ogun State  Governor, Mr. Ibikunle Amosun,  is out to witch-hunt his predecessor, Otunba Gben ga Daniel.

The c leric whose church was indicted by Justice Abiodun Akinyemi-led Panel of Inquiry on Land Matters after investigation for alleged compromise in the acquisition of the land, said, Amosun was fed with lies.

At a briefing, yesterday, to herald this year’s Mount Tabieorar Festival, Ositelu said he was dismayed that despite the fact that his church acquired the land 25 years ago and even paid compensation to the affected people before it was allotted to the church, Amosun still was not satisfied.

He insisted that there were certain areas in the panel’s report  that did not reflect the true account of  the church  position when he appeared before the panel, saying, the exercise was an attempt by the government to get back at Daniel through his church.
