The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has declared that “human contact has come to stay” amid the coronavirus outbreak.
He suggested that the devil was using coronavirus to cause fear and stop human activities.
The Christian leader said this in a Facebook video on Monday.
Oyedepo prayed to God to help the world overcome what he described as a “plague”
The cleric is being criticised for holding Sunday’s Church Service which had hundreds of people in attendance despite government warning.
But he has advised Nigerians to “Let go of fear. Everyone is a victim of whatever they fear”.
