Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Sunday led members of his church on a peaceful march against the rising insecurity in the country.
In his sermon, the RCCG overseer had called on Nigerians to continually pray for an end to the killings in the country, noting “all souls are precious to God, whether Christian or Muslim.”
He had consequently announced to the congregation at the church’s National Headquarters situated at Ebute Meta, Lagos State of the walk expected to take place after service, noting the exercise would be observed in all its branches nationwide.
“After the service, we are all going for a prayer walk. We’ll march according to age. There are some who would march around the church because of their age and there are some who would march with me to Atan Cemetery and back,” he announced.

He went on to pray for Nigeria during the sermon, saying: “Lord, have mercy on Nigeria. Let there be peace and security in Nigeria. God sees all things and knows where the terrorists are hiding, we pray that God sends His light to Nigeria and expose the evildoers in the country.”
The RCCG’s peaceful protest is coming about the same time the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) announced a three-day fasting and prayer to seek divine intervention into the worsening state of insecurity in the country.
The three-day fasting and prayer, which started on January 31st ends today, February 2, 2020, with a prayer walk across the federation.
