Nigerian singer, Davido is one of those who defiled the directive of Nigeria’s authorities’ ban on social and religious gatherings on large people as a means of reducing the coronavirus disease.
Davido went on with a club appearance that had more than 50 people in attendance at Nigeria’s largest city of Ibadan on Saturday 22 March, according to Premium Times.
Onyxnewsng reported earlier that General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has revealed when the deadly COVID-19 will only subside and not die.
He said God told him that the world will observe compulsory public holiday.
Speaking at the church’s TV station’s studio on Sunday morning, 22 March, Adeboye said: “When I told you to fast for 50 days, earlier this year, you didn’t argue with me, you obeyed even when we still fasted last November.
“Earlier this year, God told me that the world would be on a ‘compulsory holiday’. I didn’t know what that means and I didn’t say it out so as not to inflict fear. Maybe people would have blamed me for saying such today.”
Disclosing when the pandemic disease will subside, rather than die, the clergyman said: “As soon as God is through proving His point, coronavirus will subside. I didn’t say coronavirus will die. In fact, let me say it in the local parlance – ‘na lie’. Coronavirus will only subside. It has come to stay. But relax, you are going to be safe.”
Similarly, the General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo on Sunday held a service at Canaanland, Ota despite ban on religious gatherings by the Federal Government over the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.
The Bishop who defied government’s ban on religious gathering said the virus could not stop God’s children from worshiping.
He maintained that the cure to the deadly disease will be out this week.
Oyedepo said: “Plagues cannot stop us. Coronavirus cannot stop God’s children, but I assure you that the solution will be found this week.
“Only the help of God can save us, our markets are open so there is no way to curb this but only God can save Africa from this pandemic.
“We are a law-abiding people and pray for this to be over but we will mange this till the end.
“Strategies are being developed on how to manage this in respect to our worship programs. We will come up with specific programs during the week that will be communicated to everyone.
“Our Zonal positions may have to be enlarged to accommodate a lot of people, the clergyman said.
