The respected Ghanaian pastor made the statement during a recent sermon that has been trimmed into a snippet making waves on social media.

By way of explanation, the leader of Perez Chapel which used to be known as the World Miracle Church, indicated that the pandemic is specifically targeted at the church and nothing else.
The bishop indicated that people are able to go about all their life activities which include going to register for NIA cards, visiting the market and more.
However, when it comes to attending church, all of a sudden, everyone becomes extra sensitive about being infected with coronavirus when, in fact, the church is where social distancing is being respected more than any other place of usual activity.
"And there are churches who say they are waiting for the COVID-19 to be over before they resume church. By the time it is over, you don't have a church anymore. It is a satanic agenda," he said.
