agos residents witnessed what could best be described as rage of angels, last Sunday when Christians in the state took to the streets, to protest against insecurity and other evil in Nigeria, in compliance with the directive by Christian Association’s Chairman, Rev Samson Ayokunle,
Different denominations marched around their localities displaying placards with inscriptions such as ‘CAN says: Stop relugiuis and ethnic war in Nigeria, ‘Stop invading Christian communities in the north, CAN advocates for values on human lives, ‘Let our people dwell freely etc.’
Back at the Thrown of Grace headquarters of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), the church’s General Overseer World wide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye personally led his followers in the spiritual warfare to dislodge insecurity in the land, adorned in (national colours) a green white green suit.
The Lagos State chapter of CAN held sway at Sabo Yaba, with the state CAN Chairman, Apostle Alex Bamgbola, leading other state official and representatives from all the blocs of CAN nationwide who were in attendance.
Powerful scriptural commands and prayer points were released into the realm of the spirit, against all troublemakers in the nation. The gatherings also committed Nigeria and her leaders into the hands of God. This was proceeded by a prayer of repentance and a request for God to intervene in the land.
While addressing journalists, Bamgbola said: “This is the rally of the Church of Jesus Christ against the evil in the Land. It’s been so long that the Church in Nigeria has been keeping quiet. The Church can no longer keep quiet, looking at all our brethren being butchered like animals, we need to tell our rulers to rise up and do something.”
He noted that generations of Nigeria, who knew that the foundation of Nigeria was built to be a nation of peace, a nation of prosperity of God, a nation of greatness, are still very much around.
“Here we are, every nation is calling us names, barring our youths from prospering even nations are closing their doors at us; because of evils that we are doing in our land, permitting and looking at.”
He continued: “Today, the Church is making a point across to our rulers as called by our national President, Rev. Bayo Ayokunle who is the head of the church in this nation.
“And all the fathers in this land are rising up to tell our rulers to wake up and rule this nation for God; even Muslims rule their nations for their god.”
On that premise, the CAN Chairman called on the nation’s rulers to stop the killings, adding: “They can stop it, we have one of the best armies in the world. We have proven ourselves beyond this nation between 1962 to 1965, we saved Congo, we saved South Africa, we saved West Africa through. ECOMOG.
“The armies of this nation are respected around the world, even by the America US Army, So our government has no excuse not to fight the insurgents, the locusts that are devouring the land,” he stressed.
Bamgbola continued: “This is a country of human beings not a country of animals. We are saying to President of our country, Muhammadu Bihari, to please rise up and defend the people. That is why he was voted in, to defend the people of the land and heir properties. In Lagos we are saying that enough is enough.”
Speaking also, the Director of National issues and Social Welfare, National CAN, Bishop Stephen Adegbite, stated that Nigeria is our nation adding that project Nigeria will never become an abandoned project.
Agreeing with Bamgbola, Adegbite said, we have said unequivocally that enough of killing Christians. We are not going to accept it any more; and President Bihari cannot stop the killings, CAN supports that he should resign.
“As long as the don’t stop it, we are going to on their neck, the whole world will continue to hear it everyday,” he said.
