In a bid to end incessant killings in the country, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is expected to lead members of the church on a prayer walk today.
The prayer walk is expected to start around 10 a.m. and the general overseer, as well as other leaders of the church, are expected to lead the procession from the church’s national headquarters in Ebute-Meta, Lagos State.
Adeboye had directed all members of the church to participate in the prayer and fasting programme as well as the prayer walk declared by the Christian Association of Nigeria to address a spate of killings across the country.
CAN President, Dr Samson Ayokunle, had announced that the prayer and fasting session which started on Friday was aimed at praying to God to end the killing of innocent Nigerians and give the government the capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation.
The association’s position came barely four days after Boko Haram executes the Chairman of CAN in Michika Local Government, Adamawa State, Pastor Lawan Andimi, who was abducted by the insurgents on January 3 and subsequently killed despite being offered a N50m ransom.
Ayokunle had announced that apart from the three-day prayer session, Christians would also embark on what he called a special prayer walk in all states on February 2.
Adeboye, in a memo dated January 29 and signed by the Assistant General Overseer, Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola, asked members to seize the opportunity of the programme to pray against the killing of innocent people in the country.
He also directed that church services should end early in all the parishes to enable members to take part in the walk which he said should hold within the immediate environment of the churches.
