After the protest ended, Sam Adeyemi recounted how he and his wife experienced “bad dreams” about potential dangers each time they set dates to return to Nigeria.

Concerned for their safety, Adeyemi called a meeting with the leaders of Daystar Christian Center to discuss the situation. They decided to keep the church operational while he resided in the US.

“It’s been happening for 10 years now,” Pastor Adeyemi explained. “My wife and I shifted our focus to global work and established offices in Atlanta a decade ago. This move allowed us to leverage technology and Western systems to reach a global audience. All our children were in the US when the COVID-19 lockdown started, so we stayed together as a family during that period.
“ The week services resumed was when EndSARS started, so we were preparing to return to Nigeria. When the EndSARS protests ended in violence, we stayed back a bit,” Sam Adeyemi said.
