In other news, Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel has said those behind the bill on COVID-19 at the House of Representatives are working on an evil mission which will sweep humanity.
The cleric, who spoke during a live broadcast, questioned why rights of people who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine will be stripped.
Oyedepo said: “You must take a vaccine! Why will you force me to take a vaccine? For what?
“You don’t take vaccines, you don’t go outside the country! How? Where is it coming from?
“Evil scheming of evil men, gang up of agents of the devil, trying to bring a flood of evil upon humanity. And now from the vaccine: autism; from the vaccine: higher mortality rate of deaths.”
