Oyedepo fumes over killing of worshippers in Ondo

David Oyedepo

Presiding bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide David Oyedepo on Wednesday said the killers of worshippers in Owo, Ondo will be punished.

Gunmen attacked St. Francis Catholic Church on June 5, killing about 40 persons and injuring many others.

Reacting to the attack, Oyedepo, who spoke during a sermon at the church’s headquarters, Ota in Ogun State, expressed anger at the level of insecurity ravaging the entire nation.

The clergyman cursed the attackers, saying they will ‘smell’.

He said, “The devil is very scared of the church because that is where God empowers his people to rule in the midst of the enemies. That is why those vagabonds were out there in Ondo State to kill.

“I can tell you this, if they escape death, God has not sent me. Their generation will smell, and the people who sent them will smell. They shall be forgotten. The back of their camel is already broken.

“Everybody living is created by God. All the gang-up from hell against the well-being of this nation has come under a curse. Curse be to all those causing attacks in this country.”

General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye had earlier condemned the killings. He said God was displeased with it.
