General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye has postponed the Light Up crusade scheduled to hold physically in Sokoto from May 16 to 17, 2022.

The postponement followed the killing of a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, Deborah Samuel, for alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.

The state has seen unrest over the arrest of two persons allegedly involved in the killing, forcing the governor Aminu Tambuwal to declare curfew.

Adeboye, in a social media post on Monday, urged members of the church to join the crusade virtually.

“Postponed but God turned it around. We Trust In Our God’s Big Picture Plan! When God turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream,” he wrote.

“We serve a God who specialises in using the impossible situation for His glory.”

In the wake of the killing, the Christian Association of Nigeria called for a nationwide protest slated for May 22 to demand justice for the slain Sokoto student.
