Why I led RCCG members on a protest walk: Adeboye
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, has said that he led the prayer walk as a protest against the continued killing of innocent lives in the country.
Adeboye therefore called for a total overhaul of the security infrastructure expressing worry over the state of insecurity in the country.
His position was contained in a post on his facebook wall where he roundly condemned the wastage of innocent lives in the country by insurgents, terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers, militants and ritualists in all our states.
The revered man of God had led millions of members of the church across Nigerian in protest walk. He was at the National headquarters of the Church at Ebute-meta, where had earlier conducted the monthly thanksgiving service of the church beamed to most parishes of the church across the globe. The church members matched through strategic streets within the church vicinity.
This was replicated in all parishes of the church across Nigeria.
The match was preceded by prayers for peace and safety of lives in Nigeria during the thanksgiving service.
The General Overseer's statement reads, “Today, Sunday, 2nd of February, 2020, members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God led by me embarked on a prayer walk that will usher in a new dawn in our dear country, Nigeria.
“The prayer walk was aimed at offering prayers and supplications unto God to save Nigeria from being consumed by insurgents, terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers, militants and ritualists in all our states.
“Furthermore, we declared that Jesus who is the Prince of Peace is our Lord and King. We carried and displayed several placards saying 'No' to further killings and demanding that the Federal and State governments should rise up to their civic responsibility of securing the lives and properties of her citizens.
“In addition to this, we suggest that the security infrastructure in our nation be overhauled and improved drastically.
“It is our prayer and burning desire that peace will reign in our land. It is our heart-cry that our current security challenges will be a thing of the past.”
