Bishop Oyedepo, general overseer of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, on Sunday complied with the police and government’s directives on religious gathering despite his earlier threat to reopen church activities.
Eye9ja recalls that the police in Ogun State on Saturday cautioned the Pastor against reopening his churches nationwide.
The Police’s warning to Bishop Oyedepo whose full name is Bishop David Oyedepo comes after he had earlier threatened to reopen churches, declaring churches opened in the midst of the prevailing coronavirus, also known as the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
The police had claimed that it had information that some religious leaders in Ogun State were preparing to open their religious centres for people to converge.
The state Police Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, therefore appealed to such religious leaders to have a change of heart.
However, Oyedepo on Sunday held church service online, contrary to his earlier submission to reopen the church.
In his message entitled: ”Commanding the supernatural,” Oyedepo said the “Supernatural is the natural estate of every believer.”
The cleric urged Christians to believe in the word of God because it empowers them to manifest as children of God.
