RCCG: Pastor Adeboye blames Lekki shooting on Nigerian Army, calls for calm

The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye has blamed the reported shooting of protesters in Lekki area of Lagos on the Nigerian military.

Read Pastor Adeboye’s short statement below:

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as EndSARS protests.

“I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the Lekki Toll Gate, the Nigerian Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent EndSARS protesters.

“The condemnable actions of the military risks driving the agitations of the young people underground, thereby making the situation unmanageable.

“I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.

“I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack.

“May the peace of God come upon our nation, now more than ever in JESUS name (Amen).”
