Pastor Tunde Bakare, senior Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, has said those putting up what he calls ‘deliberate sinful silence’ on the Benue killings will pay for it.
The Pastor said this in the course of his ministration on Sunday, POSTERITY MEDIA can report.
“We cannot keep quiet while hardened murderers and criminals fill our land with the crimes of blood. That would be DSS… deliberate sinful silence, and I think secret service is guilty of that.”
“The brutal murder going on in Benue state and other parts of Nigeria is very atrocious and wicked. There will be consequences of this dastard murder. Everyone involved in one way or the other, either overtly or covertly, shall pay for it,” Bakare said.
Meanwhile, neither Bakare nor el-Rufai disclosed the reason for el-Rufai’s visit.
The visit came one week after the fiery preacher declared his intention to become the president of Nigeria, not stating when exactly he would run for office.
El-Rufai, who was one of the persons who pleaded with the pastor to run alongside President Muhammadu Buhari in 2011, came into the church auditorium on Sunday afternoon, while Bakare was preaching.
The pastor welcomed the governor with a hug, and said: “I have missed you… it is a good time to come”.
