‘It Is A Sacrilege To Kill Youths During A Protest’- Bishop Oyedepo

General Overseer of the Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Bishop Oyedepo has lended his voice to the ongoing EndSARS protests in the country,stating that the youths have rights to Protest against police brutality and unjust killings and extortion in the country.

He went further to admit that the President’s tenure has been the most “gruesome” ever in history of the country,and added that killing of Protesters “is a sacrilege”

According to him;

“Every man has a right, legitimately so, to express his displeasure and pains. Everybody has it.

“I kept quiet for a while because in 2015, I warned this nation, vehemently, consistently… because I saw the dangers ahead and you can tell.

“The most gruesome season in the life of this nation is in the last five years, where lives have no value, wanton killings here and there.

“Now, they have faced the youths; and because they don’t know who is next, they have a right to say enough is enough.

“Any system that has no value for human lives is irrelevant, if they are killed when they were youths, will they be here today?

“Now, it would be a sacrilege to shoot the protesters who are not looting, who are not ravaging.

“When you push a goat to the wall then you will know that goats have teeth to bite.

“It is a sacrilege to kill youths during a protest, this protest is legitimate.”

The bishop made the statement during the second service of the church.
