Nigeria is in a war situation and state of socio-cultural anomie, RCCG General Overseer, Adeboye, says

Speaking during the monthly thanksgiving service of the church to commemorate Nigeria’s 62nd independence anniversary, Adeboye noted that there is no regard anymore for monarchs as it used to be in the past as kidnappers now abduct monarchs from their palaces at will.

Nigeria is currently in a war situation and state of socio-cultural anomie, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide (RCCG), has declared.

According to him, only God can bring an ultimate end to national scourges of insurgency, banditry and kidnappings.

“We are in a war situation, let no one deceive you. God would bring an ultimate end,” Persecondnews quotes Adeboye as saying.

Speaking during the monthly thanksgiving service of the church to commemorate Nigeria’s 62nd independence anniversary, Adeboye noted that there is no regard anymore for monarchs as it used to be in the past as kidnappers now abduct monarchs from their palaces at will.

The cleric said sadly that gone are the days when traditional rulers were accorded respect, but today they have become an endangered species as they are often kidnapped for ransom.

“A whole nation can be in a storm. If a governor cannot go to his farm and feel safe, despite the security guards, He has to thank God that he returned safely, despite the bodyguard.

“For that matter, a governor. When we talk about security, the governor should be secure. When a governor utters such a statement, then you know the situation we are in.

“As young as I am, I remember a time when the king was coming. Unless you are one of the very special people, you have to move out of the way. But things are different now.

“Kidnappers can go to the palace and kidnap the king. We are in a war situation, let no one deceive you. God would bring an ultimate end,” the revered cleric also said.

“What kings, and soldiers can’t do, the Almighty God will do for you. People have opted for condemnation instead of seeking solutions through intercession.

“Pray for the rulers, we have spent so much time criticizing them. You should pray for them. I’m praying for them, I pray you will join me to pray,” Adeboye said.
