– The general overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly made the comment on Sunday, May 12 during his church sermon
– The respected cleric said his stance was due to their overwhelming presence across the country
The general overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, on Sunday, May 12, submitted that bandits, kidnappers, cattle rustlers, killer herdsmen and looters had become the commander-in-chief of Nigeria.
The cleric said his stance was due to their overwhelming presence across the country and the inability of the relevant authorities to stop their activities.
According to him, the whole nation is under the control of terrorists and they are in charge.
His words: “It is evident that the bandits; criminals, killing people every day; those kidnapping people over the place; and cattle rustlers and killer herdsmen terrorising the people are in charge in this country; they are the commander-in-chief.
“Nobody seems to know what to do anymore; the terrorists are in charge. They have even extended their regime to these areas. They now kidnap lecturers; doctors are no longer safe.
“The whole nation is under the control of terrorists. But in the name of the Lord, Nigeria shall be delivered. I shall witness the deliverance and greatness of Nigeria.”
Pastor Bakare who was delivering sermon titled: “The sign of Jonah, the prophet,” also described as shameful the presidency’s attempt to put Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria on the same social status as the Yoruba and Igbo socio-cultural bodies, Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo, respectively.
