Killings: Enoch Adeboye visits Benue, says ‘God will fight for you’

The General oversee of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Enoch Adeboye , was in Benue State on Friday to commiserate with the people of the state over the spate of killings by herdsmen.

Enoch Adeboye who visited Governor Samuel Ortom of the state, said he was pained by the killings and moved to tears.

He however assured that the people of the state would be victorious at the end of the day as God would fight the battle for them.

With him on the visit was his wife, Folu.

His words:  “I would have been here earlier but I was praying at home and was instructed by God not to come before the president.

“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 or 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.”


The governor was thankful for the visit and reiterated the pains felt in view of the killings.

It would be recalled that on Thursday, for the second time in about three months, a mass burial involving 26 people was performed in Benue State.

The people buried were some casualties recorded in the attacks carried out by suspected herdsmen in Omusu and Okana communities of the state.
