Adeboye visits Benue, prays for end to bloodshed by herdsmen
Pastor Enoch Adeboye
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye has prayed that God brings to an end, the continuous bloodshed in the land caused by incessant herdsmen attacks.
Adeboye, who prayed for the state shortly after his condolence visit to Governor Samuel Ortom and the families of the victims, said he would have been in the state earlier but was instructed by God not to visit before President Buhari visited.
“I am not here to make any political statement because I’m not a politician. I’m here just to pray. The governor is my son, his wife is my daughter. I can’t hear that my children are in trouble and sit at home. I would have been here earlier but I was praying at home and was instructed by God not to come before the President.”
“We have felt every pain you have felt. We have wept when we saw you weeping. There is no way a man of God will not feel the pain when he sees mass burial. When somebody is dead, you can’t convert that person. That is why we want these killings to stop,” Adeboye said.
While welcoming Adeboye, Ortom intimated that the enemies of the state have turned the state to an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp as a result of the mindless attacks.
