Retired Major General Akinsola Adeboye is a name that will probably not ring a bell, but he is the younger brother of Pastor Adeboye. A very reliable source who does not want his name in print averred that the retired major general is the chief security officer (CSO) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God-owned camp, popularly called Redemption Camp. It is said that the security of the whole Redemption Camp that is host to Redeemer’s University of Nigeria (RUN) and a host of other businesses rests on his shoulder. It is also averred that the retired general who has served across the length and breadth of the country met and married his wife, a Hausa-Fulani woman in Sokoto while serving there. Retired General Adeboye who has a house at 13 Akintonde Street, off AIT Road, Alagbado, a suburb of Lagos, was said to have hit rough patches after retirement, and to keep body and soul together he took up a job as a security officer in a popular filling station in Lagos. Miffed by the condition of his younger brother, the more popular brother like a knight in shining armour came to the rescue of his younger brother by offering him a job as the CSO at the Redemption Camp, due to his training as a military personnel. It is reported that he is very diligent at his job and he is now enjoying the fruit of his labour as he now owns a posh house in one of the choicest areas of Lagos.
In a similar dimension, his counterpart at the Living Faith World Outreach, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has also made his younger brother, a certain Gideon as the CSO of Canaanland. Canaanland, home to the church’s other business empire like the Covenant University and Faith Academy, is a vast and mammoth area that needs serious security. The younger brother, according to sources who crave anonymity is solely responsible for the security of the educational arm of his more illustrious brother.
