The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has asked Nigerians of all tribes and tongues to pray for the country and the rest of the world.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Adeboye begged God to show mercy on Nigeria and heal Africa’s most populous country.
“Keep praying for Nigeria and the rest of the world in these difficult times. It is our prayer that God will have mercy on Nigeria and heal our land in Jesus’ Name,” he said.
His call followed series of attacks in the country, ranging from kidnapping to banditry, terrorism to militancy, cultism to calls for secession among several others.
Insecurity in the country seems to have worsened with gunmen attacking security formations in the country.
In the past week, at least 239 people were killed and 44 others kidnapped in separate violent incidents across the country, mostly by armed non-state actors.
The violence is not limited to any state, ethnic group, or religion. It is a general problem that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is finding difficult to curb.
