- Nigerians have been asked to pray to avert more deaths in the country
- The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 others, lost their lives in a plane crash on Friday, May 21
- Apostle Paul Okikijesu, however, urged Nigerians to pray against the death of a former president
A report by Sahara Reporters indicates that a pastor of the Christ Apostolic Miracle Ministry, Apostle Paul Okikijesu, has prophesied that Nigeria may experience the death of influential persons in a plane crash between June and July 2021.
Legit.ng gathered that the cleric, therefore, urged Nigerians to pray to avert the impending tragedy.
Okikijesu disclosed this in a statement he issued on Wednesday, May 26, which states the prophecies.
“Thus says the Lord: I the Lord had previously instructed people to pray against plane crash and fire incidents or accidents at the airports; another private jet may crash that will cause loss of lives; if people are not prayerful. Pray against the plane crash of a private jet between June and July 2021."
Okikijesu also asked Nigerians to pray against the death of a former president of the country.
He also said that former governors who are now senators would face God’s judgment.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a member of the House of Representatives, Abdulrazaq Namdaz, narrated how he missed boarding the military plane that killed the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Ibrahim Attahiru, and 10 other personnel in Kaduna.
It was reported that the lawmaker said he was invited to attend the Passing Out Parade (POP) of soldiers in Kaduna state.
He said he would likely have boarded the same plane with Attahiru if he had honoured the invitation.
In a related report, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) urged President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint Major Gen. Ben Ahanotu as the next Chief of Army Staff following the death of Ibrahim Attahiru.
The youths said that appointing Ahanotu whom they described as the highest Igbo ranking officer in the Nigerian Army would help to unite the country.
The group said it has learnt that General Ahanotu, allegedly from Anambra state, is the second in command to the late Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Attahiru.
