Founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners Chapel International Bishop David Oyedepo says he would be the last person to leave Nigeria if war breaks out.
Oyedepo made the comments on Friday at his church’s headquarters in Ogun during a programme themed ‘Prayers for the Nation’ organised to mark Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day anniversary.
“I have said before that God forbids war breaks out in Nigeria, I will be the last one to leave here. I am not saying that for fun, that is where my heart is, until the last person is killed and there is nobody else to help I won’t leave here,” said Oyedepo.
“There shall not be war in Nigeria. Those who love war God will flush them out. We shall sing a new song in Nigeria. Anyone that dares a Winner (a member of my church) dies on the spot.
“Anyone that dares a member of any household of a Winner, goes down for their sake. Anyone that sets his eyes on any church to set on fire goes blind on the spot.”
He added, “Whoever makes any other attempt to enter into a school to take away innocent children, they and their children’s children will be forgotten. Anyone that makes others to mourn shall be bound.”
Oyedepo’s message of hope comes amid gloom on the faces of Nigerians battling excruciating inflation, unemployment and underemployment, insecurity among others.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God had also prayed for the country.
