Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the founder of the Living Faith Church International aka Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, claimed Lagos and Ogun states were now infected with an anti-church virus, as against Covid-19.
The renowned pastor said this during his sermon on Sunday, June 28, while condemning the closure of churches and other worship centres by Lagos and Ogun states governments.
Oyedepo wondered why markets are allowed to open with traders allegedly not observing social distancing or hygiene while churches remain closed on account of COVID-19.
His words: “No handwashing, no nothing, everyone is in the market running over each other every day of the week and there is no outbreak from the market but there is now outbreak, perceived outbreak from the church. Prophets are God’s voices to the nations. Caution!
“Now, freedom of worship is no longer a constitutional right but now determined to buy some individuals. It is a hard thing to kick against the priest.
“This is no longer coronavirus in Lagos and Ogun. It is now anti-church virus clean and clear.”
