Thousands of members of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) across the country on Sunday protested the killings of Christians in the north as well as worsening insecurity.
They were led by General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who led the march protest/ prayer walk for 2km in the National Headquarters of the church in Ebute-Metta, Lagos.
The protest kick started the 3-day prayer and fasting declared by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over the killings of Christians.
Adeboye led the Lagos leg of the protest with members of the Executive Council of RCCG.
The 2km protest/prayer march started around 10:55am from the church to the Redemption way to Coast street and back to the church.
Members were seen praying as they walked.
They also bore placards and card boards with inscriptions such as “we say no to killings”; “we say no to terrorism”, “every life matters’, “shed no blood it cries to God”, “God hurts when his creatures hurt”, “all creatures are created equal”, and “silencing others’ right is not right”.
Adeboye, who led the exercise that lasted for 15 minutes, carried a placard with the inscription: “All souls are precious to God”. (The Nation)
