National Deputy President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Bishop Wale Oke on Tuesday warned Nigerians against plunging the country into religious chaos.
Bishop Wale Oke in a statement from his media office in Ibadan stated that in doing this, Nigerians should steer clear of acts capable of causing religious chaos in any part of the country
According to Bishop Wale Oke there is the need for Nigerians to join hands with the government in ensuring that the rampaging CoronaVirus pandemic is stemmed in the country.
The Presiding Bishop of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan wondered what the perpetrators of the alert raised by the Department of States Services (DSS) of an alleged plans by some unnamed elements to cause inter- religious conflicts in some states of the federation would gain on the long run.
“At this point in time, any right-thinking individuals should be concerned about how the spread of the dreaded coronavirus that is claiming lives daily can be curbed and not causing further havoc under whatever guise” he said
Bishop Wale Oke added, ” if truly such heinous crime is being planned, then those behind it should repent, stressing “this is because God abhors blood-letting, especially of the innocent souls”.
“Our people are dying daily on count various ailments and diseases, particularly, coronavirus. Kidnappings and killings of different souls are going on in the land. These are enough problems for the nation”
Bishop Wale Oke however charged Nigerians to be religious tolerant and live in harmony, and that the DSS and other security agencies should not rest on their oars in ensuring that lives and property are secured in the country.
