Boko Haram Simply Islamic War —Oyedepo
PRESIDENT and founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, on Sunday, in Ota, Ogun State, said God had revealed the mystery of the Boko Haram since 1990s, noting that it has no political connotation, but purely an Islamic war, trying to destabilise this country through killing of pastors and burning of churches.
“Tell me, how many mosques and Muslim clerics had they burnt and killed so far?” He asked.
In a situation like this, according to Bishop Oyedepo, “we need an urgent call for concerted intercessions.”
On the Chibok schoolgirls, Oyedepo said, “the case of the abducted over 200 Chibok girls is a matter of grave concern and assault on the nation and the church of Christ in particular.
“As you might be aware, Chibok is largely a Christian community and 80-90 per cent of these girls are Christians. This is apart from thousands of believers and a number of pastors, who had been slain— mainly “during worship services in churches from 2010 till date.
“We must arise and silence this evil group called Boko Haram.”
He also implored members across the country to desist from act of waste, saying a situation where Nigerians spend a whopping sum of N499 billion monthly on recharge cards is wastage.
Bishop Oyedepo, who said he was surprised when he received the infomation, therefore, admonished members to stop living lives without budget, adding that it was even bad to have more than one phone.
