The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Pastor Adeboye has warned that if Nigeria must survive, the killings of people in Nigeria must stop.
Adeboye said this on Friday during his sermon at the church’s May Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp tagged ” Stronger than your enemies (part 5).
Before his sermon, the cleric called on the people to pray for an end to the killings going on in some states in Nigeria.
He said when a bishop asked him who would win the 2019 presidential election, he replied that unless the killings stopped the 2019 elections may not hold because people would be scared to go out to vote.
“As a leader people from various denominations call daddy, the 27 people killed were my children who were in a church or returning from a church programme,” Adeboye said he told his wife who had not heard the news at the time.
“As a father, I naturally became sad over that.”
It would be recalled that two priests and 15 congregants were killed in an attack by suspected herdsmen who invaded St. Ignatius Quasi Parish Ukpor-Mbalom in Ayar-Mbalom community of Gwer East local government area of Benue.
No fewer than 100 houses in the community were also razed in the attack.
A week later, 10 people returning from morning mass were murdered by suspected herdsmen in military uniform in Naka, Gwer West local government area of the state.
