‘When bleeding, go to hospital, not kitchen’ – Toolz counters Faith Oyedepo

ON-air-personality, Toolz Oniru has disagreed with the testimony shared by Faith Oyedepo, wife of the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo.

Faith, had recalled how she saw blood flowing from her nearly four decades ago when she was pregnant with her first son and then told her husband that she “had a miscarriage”.

She said that David Oyedepo, in his reaction, told her that “you can’t have a miscarriage” before asking to be served his meal.

“I remember when I was pregnant with our first son, one day I saw blood flowing from me,” she wrote.

“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.”

Faith said her husband’s statement “activated the spirit of faith and the pregnancy was sustained.”

Her testimony has since sparked conversations on social media.

Jumping on it, Toolz Oniru, argued that a pregnant woman bleeding from a possible miscarriage should be taken to a hospital, and not asked to prepare a meal.

“Pls don’t do this. If you’re bleeding from a possible miscarriage…go to hospital,” she wrote.

Toolz added, “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.”
