#EndSARS: Oyedepo Prays For God’s Mercy Over Nigeria
The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo, has prayed for God’s mercy over Nigeria in the wake of the blood-letting trailing the #EndSARs protests, particularly in Lagos.
“Lord, we pray for Your mercy to cover the length and breadth of Nigeria!
Ps 86:15 #EndSARS #LekkiMassacre #BreakingLimits,” he tweeted on Wednesday.
Recall that the cleric had on Sunday maintained that the youths of the country had the constitutional right to make their voices heard.
He also warned that it would amount to gross misconduct on the part of security operatives to attack peaceful protesters.
“Every man has a right, legitimately so, to express their displeasure and pains.
“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.
“The most gruesome season in the history of the nation is the last five years where lives have no value, wanton killings here and there.
“Now they have faced the youths and because they don’t know who is next, they have the right to say ‘enough is enough’. Any system that has no value for human lives is irrelevant. If they were killed when they were youths, would they be where they are today?
“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.”
