The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he knows a name that could change Nigeria for good. He said this on his Facebook page, attaching an image of himself with a text – Jesus. “I know a name that can change the current state of Nigeria for Good,” he posted.
Adeboye said this hours after reacting to the killings of Christian worshipers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State. KOKO TV had reported that gunmen stormed the church, killing about 50 worshipers during church service on Sunday, 5th of June 2022.
Adeboye in a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday, expressed sadness over the attack, saying every soul counts before God.
Adeboye wrote, “My heart goes out to everyone who has suffered from this gruesome attack. I am unable to grasp the evil that motivates one human being to deliberately take the life of another.
“Every soul counts before God, and I know that He is greatly displeased with this wickedness. I pray that God to send such greetings again. And may Nigeria never know such bloodshed again”.
Earlier, the President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Rev. Israel Akanji, said the “carnage” in Owo is the height of the desecration of a place of worship.
In a message he signed on Monday, Akanji said, “The act is despicable, unacceptable, regrettable, and sad. We can only look to God at such a time as this to have mercy on our land.
“These are negative signals indicating that there is no part of this country that is safe and that there are intentional designs to engender the collapse of our nation.
“We all must arise to ensure the discontinuation of this evil trend in our nation.
“This is also a negative omen and a mark of environmental unsuitability in our national preparation towards the election of 2023.”
