The founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, has placed curses on suspected herdmen who killed Jeremiah Omolewa, a resident pastor of the church in Romi New Extension, a suburb of Kaduna.
Omolewa was travelling with his wife and son to Abuja on Sunday when he was shot dead.
His son escaped the attack but the gunmen took his widow into the forest, from where they contacted the family of the victim to demand a ransom of N50 million.
But on Thursday, during a church service, Oyedepo asked the congregation to pray against the killers, declaring that their end had come.
He said, “Just last Sunday night for those of us who may have heard the news, one of our pastors was hacked down by Fulani herdsmen from Abuja to Kaduna,” he said.
“I want you to know, that it’s the last they will do because I am going to lead you now to release the curse of God upon his assailants and all their backers.
“Except I am not sent, their end has come. This evil system will crash. And I am speaking as a prophet, not as a pastor, like somebody walking on the street. This evil system that has no value for life, this wicked system – Fulani demons: In the name of Jesus, their end has come.
“Cursed be these Fulani herdsmen, cursed be their generations, cursed be their sponsors in the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus Christ, we have cursed.”
