Police warn Bishop Oyedepo over decision to reopen church

By Tochi Juliet

The police in Ogun State have sent a strong warning to Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel) over his plan to reopen his church.

The police said they have information that some religious leaders in Ogun are preparing to open their religious centres for people to converge.

They issued a serious warning to such religious organisation affirming it is a disobedience to the federal government and the state.

However, it was perceived this is coming because of Bishop Oyedepo viral video.

The General Overseer of Living Faith Church had declared churches open, saying anybody against the reopening of churches will die.

 A statement by the state Police Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, appealed to religious leaders to have a change of heart, saying “security agencies in the state will view the opening of worship centres with all seriousness.”

Oyeyemi said the police would not tolerate any act capable of undermining the determination of the state and federal government to fight Coronavirus to a standstill, stressing that “the ban on all forms of gathering be it social or religious is still in force.”
