Bishop David Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, has said that he warned Nigeria vehemently in 2015 about  the current crisis but was humiliated. 

The cleric attributed his reticence on the #EndSars protest to this experience.

Oyedepo spoke on Sunday at Canaanland in Ota, Ogun state.

” I kept quiet for a while because in 2015 I warned this nation, vehemently, consistently, because I saw the dangers ahead and you can tell.

Bishop Oyedopo also called on Christians to pray for God’s judgement on those behind the killings in the country.

He backed protesters saying that every man has the legitimate right to express his displeasure and pains.

The cleric described shooting peaceful protesters as sacrilege.

“It would be a sacrilege to shoot the protesters who are not looting, who are not ravaging.

“When you push a goat to the wall then you will know that goats have teeth to bite.

“It is a sacrilege to kill youths during a protest, this protest is legitimate,” he said.
