Hijab: Leave mission schools for Christians or face God’s fire, Oyedepo warns Muslims
Founder of Living Faith Church, alias Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has advised Muslims to leave Kwara schools for their various owners.
He said they should look for hijab-wearing schools their children can attend.
The Kwara State Government shut 10 schools in February over the crisis on the wearing of hijab (Islamic headscarf) by Muslim female students.
But the schools reportedly resumed on Monday.
Last week, students and teachers entered the school with violent resistance especially at Baptist Secondary School, Surulere and Cherubim and Seraphim College, Sabo-Oke in Ilorin where Christians and Muslims clashed.
“It is such a nasty development in Kwara state where Muslims are asking their students in our schools to wear Hijab, and the church said no,” Oyedepo said in a video that went viral.
“I have never seen a place in my life where a tenant will be decreeing for the landlord. You know the reason why? We have never shown the world the other side of God.
“God is not a toy. Our God is a consuming fire. Let us show them the consuming fire of God. They need to know.
“Leave the schools for the owners. Go to your schools. Is there any fight? Stop putting fingers in the eyes of others.
“The church is a time bomb. When God turns his back on anybody or any system, that system is grounded.”
“My advice is, leave the schools for the owners, find your schools. Men and women can wear hijab there. Stop putting your fingers in the eyes of others when they are not blind.”
