Media personality, Tolu Oniru better known as Toolz, has berated Pastor Faith Oyedepo, the wife of popular clergyman, Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church Worldwide, over her miscarriage testimony.
Pastor Faith recently caused a buzz on social media after she recounted how her husband reacted when she had a miscarriage scare while pregnant with their first son.
According to her, she was bleeding and feared that she had suffered a miscarriage. When she told her husband about the incident, she said he immediately rebuked her and asked for his food.
Pastor Faith who has been married to the clergyman for over 40 years tweeted on Monday, March 27,
“I remember when I was pregnant with our first son, one day I saw blood flowing from me and when my husband returned home, I told him that I had a miscarriage. Boldly, and without any hesitation, he said, “You can’t have a miscarriage!”, and then asked to be served his meal.”
The tweet, however, got on the wrong side of some people, who felt the clergyman should have been more compassionate towards his wife, instead of requesting for food.
OAP Toolz was also livid by the tweet and expressed her disapproval with Bishop Oyedepo’s reaction to his wife’s miscarriage scare.
According to her, the logical thing to do when bleeding during pregnancy is to go to a hospital, not cooking for anyone.
The mother of two wrote,
“Pls don’t do this. If you’re bleeding from a possible miscarriage…go to hospital. Last thing you should be doing is making food for anyone.
I’m so annoyed! Nigeria has one of the worst maternal mortality rates in the world, and someone is here saying ignore bleeding during pregnancy and enter kitchen. 🙄”
