The doctor shared a series of posts on the platform criticising the church. He explained that Nigeria just confirmed four new cases of coronavirus and Nigeria already has 26 cases in total.
According to him, despite everything the church still held a full service with thousands of people in attendance. He went ahead to share photos from the live stream of the service.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the Redeemed Christian Church of God amended the schedule of all parishes. The church recently released a memo directing members and parishes to follow a new schedule for services.
The memo that was tagged as a slight alteration in the mode of service for parishes in Lagos and Ogun state, was signed by the assistant general overseer of the church, Pastor Johnson Folorunsho Odesola.
In the memo, Odesola directed all parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lagos and Ogun not to hold gatherings of more than fifty members. He said parishes with more than fifty members should make use of their RCCG fellowship centres.
This was done to follow the ban placed on religious meetings and gatherings of more than 50 worshipers by the Lagos and Ogun state governments to curb the spread of coronavirus.
