Pastor Adeboye Mourns Victims of Benue Killings

The General Overseeer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, disclosed on Friday that he broke down in tears when he saw a row of caskets slated for mass burial in Benue State in January.

Adeboye disclosed this when he visited the state with his wife, Folu, and they met with Governor Samuel Ortom at the Government House Friday afternoon.

“No man of God will see a mass burial anywhere and not feel the pains of the people affected,” Pastor Adeboye said.

”Benue State is very, very close to my heart; I had felt every pain you people felt and I wept when I saw you weeping.

”We want these killings to stop, Happily, we know someone who can stop it: He is the Almighty God.”

“We will continue to call on him to fight this battle and you can be assured that victory will be certain,” he added.

Mr. Ortom expressed gratitude for the visit, and seized on the meeting to appeal for prayers from religious leaders like Mr. Adeboye.

The governor also asked for urgent humanitarian support for the thousands of villagers who are putting up in temporary camps after being displaced by the violence.
