As apprehension and fear pervade across the country over killings, banditry and kidnapping in towns and communities, the General Overseer, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has advised Nigerians to eschew hate and divisive utterances.
This comes as some bandits on Sunday attacked Haske Baptist Church in Mannai Tasha Village in Kuriga ward of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State and killed one worshipper.
An eyewitness Yakubu Bala confirmed that the gunmen stormed the church and shot indiscriminately.
It was learnt that a medical doctor with the state ministry of Health was shot by the gunmen. Also scores of worshippers were abducted by the bandits during the attack.
Bandits kidnap two nurses in Kaduna Bala said, “A Medical Doctor with the Kaduna State Ministry of Health was shot and many people were kidnapped while so many worshipers sustained varying degrees of injuries. We have not seen some of our villagers who ran into the bushes while the shootings were going on.
This is coming on the heels of bandits’ abduction of students and the killing of three of the students and a staff of the Greenfield University in the same local government.
However, gunmen were reported to have attacked two security locations in parts of Rivers State on Sunday.
The attacks were said to have happened at about 23:30 pm on April 24, 2021, during which eight security were allegedly killed.
A source said, “two burnt corpses were recovered at the JTF checkpoint while three were recovered at the customs checkpoint and three other bodies recovered at another location.
But the General Superintendent, GS, of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, Sunday, speaking on state of the nation declared that Nigeria can fly again.
He expressed hope that God is still interested in Nigeria, therefore urged Nigerians to stop hate and killing of one another including use of divisive utterances that could dampen the expected change.
Kumuyi also counseled that Nigerians should not give up on their country but should believe that things will get better when they focus on God and do that which is expected of God from them by loving each other and making use of the resources God has blessed the nation with.
He said: “We thank the Lord for what the Lord has done, and doing this we are doing together, seeing the Lord rolling away problems that people did not think will easily be rolled away like that neither seeing the people who are lame walking, people deaf and dumb the Lord healing them, and things like that.
“What God does for an individual He does it for the family, and what He does for the community, and what he does for the community He can do for the country.
“The point is these people that received this divine touch they did not give up, did not think is all over, they knew that God can still do something, the country would have to adopt that same mindset, and know that whatever we are going through stop accusing this and accusing that while we are pointing accusing fingers we are trying to say let you be on you own and let me be on my own; let the East go and let the West go, and this one go.
“If we are thinking like that we will not expect the solution God wants to give us but when we have hope and we know yet we have gone through some deep waters things are going to change, our God has the possibility to make things change. I believe that we will fly again.
“And I believe and declare things will become better for our country, things are going to turnaround and we will still remain in life to enjoy the goodness of the Lord for our families and ourselves in the same country, and we are going to raise our heads and say this is my country, and God will do it and we will live to see the fulfillment.”
