The head of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has condemned the extrajudicial killings of Youths calling for an end to police brutality, extrajudicial killings and extortion in Nigeria.
Oyedepo, in his homily at the second service of the church on Sunday, described the Buhari-led administration as “the most gruesome” one in the history of Nigeria.
The cleric moved further to described the shooting and killings of youths protesting nationwide as sacrilege, adding that there is a good justification for the clamor and they have the rights to do.
The founder of Living Faith Church further recalled that he warned vehemently against voting President Buhari in 2015 as he had foresaw the pending doom.
He said; “Every man has a right, legitimately so, to express his displeasure and pains, everybody has it.
“I kept quiet for a while because in 2015 I warned this nation, vehemently, consistently… because I saw the dangers ahead and you can tell.
“The most gruesome season in the life of this nation is in the last five years, where lives have no value, wanton killings here and there.
“Now, they have faced the youths; and because they don’t know who is next, they have a right to say enough is enough.
“Any system that has no value for human lives is irrelevant, if they are killed when they were youths, will they be here today?
“Now, it would be a sacrilege to shoot the protesters who are not looting, who are not ravaging.
“When you push a goat to the wall then you will know that goats have teeth to bite.
“It is a sacrilege to kill youths during a protest, this protest is legitimate.”
