All parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been enjoined to end their service not later than 11am on Sunday,(today) to enable members “march round their immediate environment, praying for God’s intervention in the ongoing situation in Nigeria.”
The walk across the country is to express displeasure at the “gruesome killings of innocent people in the country.”
The action is also to pray for “the government to develop capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation.”
The protests are at the instance of the RCCG General Overseer, Pastor Adejare Adeboye.
The Assistant General Overseer (Admin and Personnel) of the church,Pastor J.F Odesola said in a January 29, 2020 circular to all regions and provinces of the RCCG said: “The Christian Association of Nigeria, the umbrella body for all Christians and Christian organizations in Nigeria, has made a clarion call for prayers and advocacy to all Christians in Nigeria in response to the inhumane acts against Christians in the country.
