A woman who worked as an initiator of the Winners Chapel of Shiloh 2020, officially died of COVID-19 on her return from the programme.
The Bishop of the Living Faith Church, popularly known as the Winners’ Temple, David Oyedepo, had earlier said that the devil was using the COVID19 pandemic to attack the church of Christ.
Oyedepo allegedly said that there was nothing in the novel Coronavirus while delivering his New Year’s sermon at his church in Ota Ofun State.
The pastor who has always condemned the protocols developed to contain the spread of COVID19. As he preached to his congregation on New Year’s Eve, he said;
“When the church goes against a man, his destiny is finished. When the church goes against a system, that system will crash.
Men and brethren, there is nothing in Covid-19. One of the governors was making some statements recently and said, ‘We have only had five cases since the noise began. So, where is Covid-19?
One governor was also quoted as saying, ‘I saw people at National Identification Card area, no distancing, no nothing and how much more the church of God where there is order’.
There is no Covid-19 in National Population Card Centre. There is no social distancing in the market. There is nowhere to wash hands or wash nose and even the officials who are in charge are also buying things there.
What I think they don’t know is that the church has changed level. When the church launches an attack against anyone or system, that system crashes. Thank God we have prevailed.”
Reacting to the news, a Nigerian lady @_oluwafunmilade on Twitter, claimed that her friends mum who served as usher at the recently concluded Shiloh 2020, has died of COVID-19 after the event. She wrote;
