General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor EA Adeboye, has disowned a prayer point circulated on Saturday.
The message called for prayers against Fulani herders said to be tormenting the South-West.
Adeboye noted in a tweet that people should disregard it as it did not originate from him.
The information he described as fake news read: “The Fulani Moslems, well-organised, have encircled us with high calibre arms and ammunition pretending they are cattle-rearers, wait for orders to overrun our land and kill our people. They have perfected their strategies.
“Now, oh Lord, arise and defend us; contend with those that contend with us.
“Oh Lord, protect us. Stop them from destroying our farmlands, raping our women, killing our people, burning our houses, kidnapping and robbing us.”
Reacting, Adeboye noted:
“Calvary greetings! Please ignore this prayer point titled, “Prayer from Daddy G. O. Adeboye”,” he captioned a copy of the so-called ‘prayer points’.
“It is not from me and I have not assigned anyone to come up with it. I am not associated with the content neither the author of the content. Please beware of such! God bless you!”
