Senior pastor of House on the Rock Church Paul Adefarasin has appeared in a viral video urging his congregation to prepare a “plan B” in case there is need to leave the country.
Adefarasin’s advice in the one-minute video which has been shared multiple times on social media follows heightened insecurity and threats of secession in Nigeria.
He said his wife Pastor Ifeanyi Adefarasin was out of the country preparing their escape route.
“I bring you greetings from Pastor Ifeanyi who is busy taking care of the frontier of our world and preparing our escape route,” Adefarasin said in his sermon on Sunday, with a mild laugh.
“If you don’t have a plan B, I know you have faith, I have faith too but I also have a plan B. And with technology, I can preach to you from anywhere in the world.
“Get yourself a plan B whether that’s an Okada to Cameroon or flying boast or speed boat as we call them to Seme border or a hole in the ground, a bunker. Get a plan B ‘cos these people are crazy.”
His advice has been received with mixed feelings by social media users.
