Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has laid curses on all cultists and criminals making life difficult for the people of Nigeria.
Speaking at the church’s monthly Holy Ghost Service at the new Arena, Pastor Adeboye reportedly asked members of the church to pray for God to root out every kidnapper in Nigeria.

“My Father, send down your fire on all every society or cult groups shedding blood of innocent Nigerians.
“Send down Your fire upon every person or organisation that are making life difficult for the common people people of the nation. Father expose them and dislodge them,” Vanguard quoted him as saying.
Adeboye also slammed some prosperity preachers in Christiandom saying they go to the extreme and twist God’s message to fit what they want the people to hear.
“The reasons pastors are categorized like this is because that is the area they focus on, but atimes they go to extreme.
“Prosperity preachers preach prosperity in such a manner that atimes they have to twist the word of God to fit their message.
“Faith preachers do same. There’s nothing wrong with faith. Without faith you cannot please God.
“I am a man of faith, I live by faith but I am not a faith preacher. It takes faith to come and live in this jungle with my family when it the den of highway robbers and pytons. It takes faith.
“There are grace preachers who talk about grace to such an extent that it becomes ridiculous. I know that it is by grace we are saved.
“I know that I am what I am today by the grace of God but I am not a grace preacher because they preach grace in such a manner that they say once you are born again you can continue committing adultery and grace will still take you to heaven. That is a lie.
“I am holiness preacher. Cut me to a thousand pieces, each of the pieces will still shout be holy. And you would say; you too, don’t you go to extremes sometimes? Extreme?
“All that the Angels are crying from eternity to eternity is: Holy Holy Holy is the Lord. I am a holiness preacher because I discover long ago that holiness is the master key,” he said.
We had earlier reported that for Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos, traditional rulers in parts of the state must brace up to end the incessant ritual killings, by the Badoo cult group.
Currently, scores of residents including entire families have been wiped off by the cultists, whose major weapons are grinding stones and pestles.
The state, in conjunction with law enforcement agencies, has begun massive manhunt for members of the group while some arrested by communities in the state have either been lynched or handed over to the police.
