Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo has goofed on the purported arrest of terrorists who attacked St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State.
Oyedepo, during the church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer (CHoP) on Saturday gave a false testimony that the Owo attackers had been arrested less than the seven days he prophesied.
The Ondo State Police Command had on Friday debunked rumours that the attackers had been arrested.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, said the report was untrue, noting that nobody had been arrested in connection with the attack.
She said, “There is nothing like that. We have called the police divisions there, they said there was nothing like that. We have called the Kabiyesi, Olowo of Owo, he said he was not aware of any arrest. So, it is the handiwork of some social media but it is just rumour.”
But Oyedepo said “Our God answers prayers, all those demons that attacked the Church in Owo have all been found. It is not seven days yet.
“In the same way, all the enemies of your soul shall be caught and judged and sent to eternal silence. Thank you Heavenly Father, speak to us this morning and let your name be glorified.”
Oyedepo prayed: “Every gang up of devils against the peace and prosperity in Nigeria, arise and let your enemies be scattered.
“We stand today to prophesy against you princes among the people that are out to keep killing multitude on the street of our great nation, fresh judgment comes upon you today.
“All Pelatiah that are out to destroy innocent souls, judgment has come upon you today. Go ahead and pray, position the angels to go after them in their various hiding places. Their end has come.”
Oyedepo said “they have come against your Church, they are broken. Now fall upon them so they can be grinded. Now pray in the Holy Ghost everyone. Within days, He will show Himself. In this nation, He will show Himself. In the camp of the wicked, He will show Himself. I said that if within seven days they are not caught, I am not sent by God. They were caught.”
The bishop prayed further: “Anyone who won’t let this nation go free will go down. Many will sleep and not wake up. Many will wake up and never see the light of day again. Many will go deaf and dumb. Watch out for it. Enough is enough.
“For all their sponsors, the end has come. Wealth will not be traceable to them anymore. They stole and they are using the stolen money to torment the people. Enough is enough! They will never live to see another attack on a Church.”
