The man of God in his admonition to the large numbers of worshippers, said,a nation may survive civil war, while a Religious war can tear down a kingdom.

Pastor Enoch Adeboye The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Overseer on Friday sounded a note of warning to the current Nigerian government to find a quick end to the sectarian killings in different parts of the nation, stressing that Nigeria as it is presently constituted may not remain if these attacks continue.

The declaration was made at the May 2018 Holy Ghost service while treating the theme: “Stronger Than Your Enemies 5” with a sub title, ‘Habitation of the Almighty’,Adeboye also warned that “unless the killings stopped there may not be elections in 2019 in Nigeria.”

The man of God in his admonition to the large numbers of worshippers, said,a nation may survive civil war, while a Religious war can tear down a kingdom.

While Narrating how he felt in far away Germany when yet to be identified herdsmen stormed St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Ukpor-Mbalom Parish, Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State, killing two Catholic priests and 17 parishioners, he told the large crowd that he was unusually quiet and his wife of over 50 years was curious.

“I said there is no father who would lose 19 children in a day that will not be quiet. She said what do you mean, because she hadn’t heard the news that in a church, somebody went in and shot 19 people.
“It doesn’t matter the denomination…by the special grace of God, all Christians in Nigeria call me daddy. So when any of them dies, it’s my son or daughter that is dead,” Adeboye said.
It will be recalled that on April 24, 19 persons, including Reverend Fathers Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha, who were conducting the morning Mass were gunned down in cold blood, while many sustained injuries, including bullet wounds.
He therefore called on the Buhari led government to urgently end the killings before it dovetails into a religious war.
Continuing, Pastor Adeboye said:
“I am going to ask you to join me in prayer, because unless these killings stop, and stop immediately, even Nigeria may not live. I am not talking about individuals now, I am talking about Nigeria itself…a bishop asked me not too long ago, ‘Daddy, has God told you who win the next election?’
“I said, Sir, I am not even sure yet there will be an election. Because unless these killings stop there may be no elections next year. ‘Are you prophesying , Daddy?’ No, no! I am not prophesying. I am just reasoning. Because nobody will want to go out to vote if they are not sure they will be able to return home safely,” he explained.
"So all of you who love Nigeria, I want to rise on your feet, and cry to God with all your heart, and say: Father, let the killings stop,” and the response was spontaneous…..”that Nigeria may live, please God let the killings stop."
