Pastor Chris speaks about lockdown on churches, says it's not the wisest thing

- Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has spoken about the lockdown that has made churches closed worldwide

- The pastor said that churches are places of blessing and not where people go to and catch sicknesses

- According to him, any government with great wisdom knows not to trouble churches

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has reacted to the move by some state governors to temporarily relax the lockdown law so that some churches can celebrate Easter.

During his preaching on Friday, April 10th, the cleric said that church is not a place of infection but where people come to get blessed.

He, therefore, prayed against anything that makes people come into the church and get infected with diseases.

“Churches are not a place of infections, they are a place of blessings… I decree and declare that every church is a place of blessing in that might name of Jesus,” he prayed.

Pastor Oyakhilome also said that any government with wisdom will know not to trouble the church, but leave them alone.

Oyakhilome was seen on video saying that the Nigerian federal government ordered the total shutdown of Abuja and Lagos because it was not enough for the state government to do so.
