I beg you in the name of God, don’t retaliate against South Africa -Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Nigerians at home not to avenge the attacks on their compatriots in South Africa.

Nigeria and South Africa locked in bitter diplomatic row over the xenophobic violence in the former apartheid country, leading to the looting of property belonging to  Nigerians.

And the Federal Government is making arrangements to evacuate Nigerians willing to leave South Africa for home.

Adeboye, who called for caution,  said the  Federal Government should be allowed to use diplomatic means to resolve the crisis.

According to him, Nigerians travel to South Africa in search of greener pastures since there are fewer opportunities for them in their country.

In his sermon that started at about 11pm during the September edition of the monthly Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday, Adeboye  said, “I beg you in the name of God, don’t retaliate against South Africa.”

He said this in the presence of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who was with his wife, Dolapo.

The pastor recalled his experience as a student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.  He said as the civil war was about to start, students at the University of Ibadan were seized in the Western Region and he and other non-easterners were also seized in the Eastern Region.(Punch)
