Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, has reacted to a statement made by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in which he said, “You can only have ancestral attachment when you are alive. If you are talking about ancestral attachment, if you are dead, how does the attachment matter?”
Femi Adesina made this statement as a suggestion of ways by which the killings carried out by Fulani herdsmen can be stopped.
Reacting to Femi Adesina’s statement last night in Otta, the headquarters of his church, Oyedepo said anyone trying to destroy Nigeria will die as he declared that the country is gradually turning to an animal farm.
He said, “I heard they said you should choose between your life and your land. If they take your land and rename it, won’t you prefer to be dead than to be alive?
“The place of my father’s sepulchre? If you come there, we will show you strength. What nonsense?
“This is becoming worse than Animal Farm! You know Animal Farm? George Orwell. I’ve never seen this kind of kangaroo nonsense.
“Death is not a problem. Who do you want to harass? Even when I was a boy, you couldn’t say that.
“They say my name is on their list. Who do you think you can harass by that?
Their names are also on my list.
Their names are in ‘red’.
You know what that means?
Rest In Peace.
They will rest in crisis!
Every plan of the devil against you will walk on their own head.
“It is better to lose your land than lose your life? You better stop that folly,” Oyedepo concluded.
