Pastor E. A. Adeboye, General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Friday visited Benue State, where Fulani Herdsmen are said to have killed over 100, Vanguard reports.
Adeboye, speaking during the visit in Makurdi, said God instructed him to visit only after the president had visited.
Benue State is close to his heart, he said, and he wept when he saw the people of the state weeping. He 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. But of course no man of God will see a mass burial anywhere and not feel the pains of the people affected.
We want these killings to stop. Happily we know someone who can stop it, He is the Almighty God, He does not fail nor compromise, He is the God of all. We will continue to call on Him to fight this battle and you can be assured that victory will be certain.
