Redeemed Church curses B’Haram, says insurgency’ll end 2015

The Redeemed Christian Church of God has cursed Boko
Haram, saying the group will be defeated before the end of
the year.

The church’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor
Segun Adegbiji, said the church was concerned about the
safety of its members and was increasing security
measures around its parishes.

Adegbiji spoke on Wednesday at Redemption Camp in Ogun
State, during a briefing on the church’s 63rd annual

The convention, which is themed, ‘The All Sufficient God’,
will hold from August 3 to 9, 2015.
While fielding questions from journalists on the recent
killings of six members of the church by a suicide bomber in
Potiskum, Yobe State, Adegbiji said the insurgents had gone
beyond their boundary.

He said, “We are passionate about the safety of our
members and indeed the safety of citizens of this country.
We prayed against Ebola, that it should get out of this
country and whether you believe it or not, God answered our
prayers and it left. Boko Haram is a monster and it will be
defeated this year.

“We are working on the security of our churches. If those
people should attempt to do that next time, they will be in
serious trouble.”

West, said the church’s new auditorium in Shimawa, Ogun
State, was the biggest in the world.

He said the 3 kilometres by 3 km arena would take no fewer
than 12 million congregants at a time.

He said, “The current structure we have is the biggest
auditorium in the world because it will take about 12 million
people at a time. In terms of naira and kobo of what it
costs, I don’t have the figure right now.”

Responding to the issue of the perennial problem of traffic
on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway whenever the church had
programmes, the head of the church’s international office,
Mrs. Margret Boluwakole, said the church was not to

She said, “Whenever there is traffic on the road, people
always blame us. We wish to state that it is the poor state
of the road that is causing traffic jam. We don’t hold
congress on the road.

“Almost every Friday, there is traffic on that road. There
are several portholes on Ojodu Berger and Ibafo ends of the

“In fact, we sometimes repair the road at the expense of the
church and we don’t collect money from anybody. People
should stop blaming the church.”
