Living Faith Church reacts to video showing founder, Oyedepo, urging members to ‘kill’

A video showing the founder and Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide International, David Oyedepo, prodding church members to kill suspected “militants” who go near his church, was shot in 2015, the church has said.

But it said reports that the cleric was charging Christians to take up arms and attack Muslims in the wake of the Southern Kaduna killings, were “fake and salacious”.

Mr. Oyedepo made the comments in the heat of Boko Haram attacks, the Church added.

The video shows Mr. Oyedepo during a highly Church charged session addressing thousands of members of Living Faith Church, and urging them to be up against perpetrators and sponsors of religious violence.

“All the northern forces that are sponsoring these uprising and killings, I decree the curse of God upon them,” he said.

Mr. Oyedepo continued: “Come on, pray in the spirit everybody. Pray in the spirit, open fire, call down the Holy Ghost fire to descend on the camp of the enemy. Enough is Enough! What demonic devils. What Islamic demons. If Nigeria waits for the church to rise, Nigeria will disappear as a nation.

“I was even told from report that they were targeting this church. I said what? Even if I was asleep, if you see anybody here kill him! Kill him and spill his blood on the ground. I am saying that to you, what nonsense, what devil. You think our God is an idol?

“I declare their collaborators cursed. I decree their sponsors cursed!

“Must the north continue to rule? What devils! God has anointed me to lead a revolution against the Islamic jihadist and as the Lord liveth and as the anointing of Jeru-Baal that’s on me, we declare them extinct in the name of Jesus! Amen!

“You catch anyone that looks like them, kill him! There is no reporting to anybody. Kill him! Pull off his neck! And we spill his blood on the ground. What nonsense.”

Furthermore, the bishop said, “Every agent of destruction in Government today, call fire down on their head, call fire down on their head.

“Everyone sponsoring evil against the nation, let your fire fall on him!”

He continued: “They said why Christians should say they could defend themselves, hold it! What stupid statement. Why should Christians say they could defend themselves? So, they should watch for you to put a knife to their necks? You think we are dummies?

“Don’t mistake only those in politics as in power. The anointed in the Lord are the ones in power. By divine ordination, don’t mistake that. There was a king in the land but Elijah was determining the events of the nation. If I say it will not rain here for three years, it will not drop. What nonsense!

The declarations received thunderous “Amen” from worshippers.

The Church responded Saturday to criticisms after the video trended on the social media.

Chairman of the Church’s Editorial & Media Board, Sheriff F. Folarin, said in a statement:

“Our attention has been drawn to a salacious piece of fake news in mainstream and social media platforms, that Bishop David Oyedepo, Founder and President of Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners’ Chapel International) charged Christians to take up arms and attack Muslims in the recent Kaduna killings and that if religious and ethnic injustice could not be addressed, Nigeria could as well break up.

“The fake news item, which has been trending online for a couple of days, is supposed to be a report depicting the Bishop reacting to the hostilities between Christians and Muslims in southern Kaduna in which unnumbered persons, mostly Christians have been killed.

“In this report, Bishop Oyedepo purportedly called out and berated the politicians who were fun-watching while the carnage went on or fanning the embers of the violence, and supposedly noted that there was no basis for Nigeria’s continued unity.

“For instance, in the online version of one of the popular Nigerian newspapers (Vanguard of January 12, 2017 reported by one Anthony Ogbonna), the Bishop was quoted as saying: “God has anointed me to lead a revolution against the Islamic jihadists” The Bishop is presented to have made very provocative and inciting comments to his congregation, declaring a counter-war against the Fulani and fanatics in the recent Kaduna crisis.

“The report is false. The video from which the quotes were taken is a 2015 video at a Sunday service in the heat of the Boko Haram crisis, when churches, including our Northern assemblies were under frequent attacks. This was before the present administration took office. The message bears no relevance to today’s happenings; not even developments of 2016. The reporter(s), either being completely unprofessional, lazy or simply wicked, made the 2015 message look like a 2017 church service message. The trending video is NOT a 2016 or 2017 video.

“To this end, we can unequivocally and authoritatively say that this quote, the report and other similar reports do not fit the context of the Kaduna crisis or any developments whatsoever in the last one year.

“The reports are therefore fake, unbelievably and maliciously fabricated and outright lies. They are tweaked, baseless, and fraudulent.

“Bishop Oyedepo has not said, either in private or public, anything related to the Southern Kaduna killings: not now, not hitherto. If there has been anything done, it has been prayer for peace and unity of Nigeria. The intent of the original author(s) or fabricators is best known to them.

“However, what is baffling is the degree of lowliness of today’s journalism practice. If any online media seeking patronage or relevance had bolted to the newsroom with this piece of white lie, shouldn’t the supposedly more responsible ones take ethical steps, namely, to confirm, substantiate and ascertain the authenticity of such claim before going to press and avoid joining the bandwagon of sensational and irresponsible journalism?.

“Moreover, our church is an open one, with a website that has online media resources, from which all our audio and video tapes and other materials, from time immemorial, can be freely accessed. All our archived videos are unedited. Also, there are hard copies of all the church messages in our libraries and bookstores. Again, we have a Media and Editorial Board that can be consulted at any time. But, which of these mediums did the writers of the fake reports avail themselves of before publishing?

“For the records and for posterity, Bishop Oyedepo will not say any of those things in view of current dire straits in which Nigeria has found itself. There are too many problems at hand, which require divine intervention. He will not add to the throes and utter such divisive words. As a father of the nation and a Pan Africanist in his own right as a religious leader whose ministry spreads across the continent and beyond, he is a huge believer in the corporate entity called Nigeria and has been a messenger of national love, hope, peace and unity.

“While he feels for the victimized people across the length and breadth of the country and his heart goes to them, he has always worked with government at all levels to keep Nigeria safe and strongly unified.

“The Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners’ Chapel International) has never been a Yoruba church, or a Southern Nigeria church; it has always been a church for all Nigerian church, a platform where all persons of all walks of life bond in the name of Jesus Christ. For those who may not know, Bishop Oyedepo’s first major break in Christian ministry was in Kaduna, his second home, where he is a friend and father to millions of people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds.

“Indeed, our church has been a catalyst for the Nigerian hope and dream and with its two universities and numerous secondary and primary schools nationwide, the church has made it possible for Nigerians to come closer as one people to rebuild our fatherland.”

  • Mufu Ola

    Though I’m not a fan of Oyedepo but d comments attributed to him are so amateurish & childish that only duds will believe them. I’m certain the authors of the video are no other than certain hate elements from Southern area of Nigeria. Hatred of others is in their gene and they are always working hard to recruit others into their hate industry.The authors are not even smart to find appropriate words to put into Oyedepo’s mouth.They believe everybody have their crude & noisemaking mentality.

    • Kallah Bature

      Bishop Oyedepo should take the online newspaper to court.This will go a long way in curtailing the excesses of irresponsible journalism that feeds on unsubstantiated news.

      • princegab

        That’s what the church should do, the writer can keep his source of information but be punished for not confirming with the church as to the authenticity before publishing.
        The vanguard news papers have made themselves available tools for destabilization.

        • demgosoonknow

          Did you even view the said video? Go watch it.

        • elvis

          Dummy. What is he going to say in court? That he did not say those things or that he said in 2 years ago? Where did u leave your brain?

          • princegab

            You are funny boy, getting to the court will be the beginning of big trouble for the writer or publishers. Since church has original copy of materials in question. Someone would have to explain why doctoring and for what intent. These publishers who took bribes during the elections are at it working hard to destabilize Nigeria.

        • Höly Wähala

          See why I say you have agidi for brains, was he not caught preaching hate and inciting murder on his fake juju alter? What is he going to say in court, that his face and voice were cloned by fraudsters like you, that he did not make those hate-filled comments? Quit thinking, you are too stuupid to contribute in a public forum… read yourself again and slap yourself, you deserve nothing less. Moron!

      • tai28

        He should go to court with video evidence of him making the published statements?

        • lanre

          abi o

      • lanre

        vanguard is not just an online newspaper

    • tai28

      ‘The video from which the quotes were taken is a 2015 video at a Sunday service’. That quote is from Mr. Oyedepo’s church editorial and media board chairman. If Mr. Oyedepo said it in 2015 and the video surfaced in 2017, how is that fake news?

  • The oneNigeria

    I knew there is more to that video than meets the eye . Not a fan of him and I will never be his fan but everyone could see he is not a violent person. They have twisted the message to correspond with the message of Fani Kayode ,Reno Omokri and the other co-travelers of ethnic terrorists

    • Powerlessconscious

      That is the work of biafraud. Anthony ogbona… And vanguard news the most controversial.

    • lanre

      yea, he didn’t say those words….hmmm

    • Höly Wähala

      You wrote, “…everyone could see he is not a violent person.”
      You are a liar to claim what people can see when you’ve only got two eyes to see and speak for yourself only.
      What everyone remembers is David Oyedapo slapping a poorly-educated young girl kneeling in front of his evil alter and waiting for the fraudster to pray for her, he not only slapped her once, he kept at it to the cheer and joy of those demented pfools he hypnotized with Satan’s powers. Oyedapo is a born-again-agbero who has no affinity with God, the evidence is his voice in that video… no sane and mature man of God would ask anyone to kill which is clearly not among the mandates of God called The Ten Commandment… Thous Shall Not Kill.

      • The oneNigeria

        What an uncouth buffoon . You need to learn internet etiquette .

  • Slay44

    The level of comprehension for these new age Nigerians is baffling, if not outright, disturbing.

    What you saw in quotes, as written by premium times, are Oyedepo’s words. They were not targeted at the recent Kaduna killings, but they are his words.

    Oyedepo’s spokesman did not deny that Oyedepo used those hateful, inciteful and unchristian rhetoric, the spokesman is only saying the context was different.

    As a Christian (not a catholic), I cannot imagine the Pope using such insensitive, vile, criminal language under any circumstances.

    Oyedepo and his cohorts are running a scam and a cult disguised as Christianity. They imported this brand of “feel good, sow seeds and get rich” scam from America where most of their mentors, including Jimmy and Tammy Baker and Tilton have all served time in jail for fraud.

    Nigerians will wake up to this scam soon!

    In the meantime, let Oyedepo stop the sun from rising since he can stop rain for three days.

    God help us with these jet setting, Armani suit wearing fraudsters.

    • Arkhuma

      Thanks my brother. Well articulated.

    • Höly Wähala

      …and it is no surprise that all the jet-age pastors are from one particular region of the country that hates hard labor but relish the good life, easy money and are heavily dependent of little gods (juju) for devil’s protection. Fake David Oyedapo is an agbero pastor, a motor park tout turned preacher. He slapped a young illiterate lady right in front of his alter because the ignorant woman could not properly express herself in English. David Oyedapo is a wanted scam artist and fraudster in the UK as I type, he cannot dare near the EU because I will personally track him and return those slaps. They are cultists, conmen, fetish priests, that’s why they cling to the administration of their fake churches like monkeys sling to ripe bananas… because they’re afraid an outsider would reveal the hideous real secret behind their secretive oraganisations. Adeboye, Oyedapo, TB Joshua, Bakare, Ashimoluyi, Ayo Oletsejafor et al, all criminals abusing the name of the Lord, they will all pay dearly here on earth before crows take their darkened and harkened hearts to Satan aka, Sango… Useless thieves, animals!

  • Smart

    Even if these statements are not for kaduna killings, the hatred for the religion he preached against is too much.
    Love is one of the attributes of all prophet of God including Jesus the son of Mary.

  • Slay44

    Please people, go Google these famous Pentecostal preachers and read their dossier:

    1. Robert Tilton 2. Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker 3. Oral Roberts 4. Jimmy Swaggert 5. Peter Popoff 6. Bob Jones 7. Jamie Buckingham 8. Earl Paulk 9. Clarence McClendon 10. Roberts Liadon 11.

Rica and Zachary Tims 21. Benny Hinn 22. Eddie Long 23. Kong Hee 24. David Yonggi Cho 25. Paula White

    These are a over two dozen Pentecostal preachers around the world who we all need to familiarize ourselves with. The movement in Nigeria is exploiting the vulnerability of our economic circumstances.

  • SAM .A

    Bishop Oyedepo was right in 2015, when Nigerian soldiers were running away from Boko Iranun , they had temerity then to kill anybody , any time. They both over ran Churches and bomb in Mosques. They even attacked Major General Buhari in Kaduna .Then BH can kill your mum and for you to turn your neck to them to slaughter you . The Bible said u should be wise like Viper . If BH enter your Church or Mosque you are to pay him back in his coins , nothing was bad in that , however that was then . Now there is relative peace , the only problem now are poverty, hunger and episodic violence .No body will call for arms and self defense in peace time , rather Pastors are calling for prayers . The Mischief maker and manipulator who is twisting Bishop words and forward dated it , should bury his head in shame. We in SW knows better , we shall not rise against our brothers and sisters , neither are we going to rise against any body , for the 1st time since 1966 , we have joined the Northerners to form a government . We shall do everything to make sure this government succeed . To distractors and Character assassinators, your share is in perdition in Hell.

    I don’t know why or where in d bible that stop xtian from fighting against persecution. The earliest xtian after the bible story spread xtianity thru war, weapon n warfare.

    • dareolu1

      ””’The earliest xtian after the bible story spread xtianity thru war, weapon n warfare””””…….a huge lie they keep telling you….Catholicism was helped to spread through the spread of the Roman Empire not that Christians used swords and dangerous weapons to spread the Gospel, were is the scriptural backing for such, not even in Old testament times did God ever enforce his Commandments on anyone……His way is, if you disobey it as His child, he will punish you, period….God don’t force anything on any human, stop using Satan’s characteristics to describe God and His people, please stop…..thank you!

    @disqus_c7R5qGiEcF:disqus

    I am in full support of Pastor David Oyedepo.
    Muslims threaten the peace of Nigeria and cause strife in the world.
    Today, Muslims constitute themselves worldwide into public enemies.
    Wherever these Muslims are there illiteracy and mass murder are, also.
    As a group Muslims are counter-cyclical force against peace and progress.

    To kill the mad Muslims is now the first foreign policy priority of the U.S government.
    France has woken up with clear eyes to see the Islamist Muslims as worse than cancer.
    Russia and America are coming together in solid military alliance to kill the mad Muslims.
    No country will know peace until these mad Islamists are killed en masse and disposed off.
    No one in history ever had a dialogue with mad Muslims and succeeded to build consensus.
    Muslim Islamists must be killed because they are beasts and beasts don’t belong to humanity.

    • El Patron

      Russia and America coming together in solid military alliance? Not sure where u got that gist from bro

      • Abdoul Jyze

        Discrimination is an act of Hate and a Dangerous speech that may trigger violence, and we all know what violence will lead to. Then why are we spreading violence instead of peaceful coexistence. Violence will not solve the problem but peace may solve, Remember we are peace we seek so why not be the peace. Peace is the only way to peace.

    • Mufu Ola

      We have lots of beasts also down easternmost Nigeria who always try to hide their beastly by shouting endlessly on others.

  • Ezekiel

    Journalists are mostly liars, they are of 1% true!!!!!!

  • Mama Kay

    In sane societies, this sermon will be classified as hate speech and incitement to murder.

    By now, the preacher would have been arrested and charged to court.

    However, this is Nigeria where the laws of the country are only for harassing the poor people.

    • Olusola

      What would you rather? That he should ask Xtians to file out and have their heads chopped off? Look at the context of the message: 2015 when bombs were going off in churches, and pastors heads were been chopped off he should tell christians to wait at home and die quietly? Dont you think we can and will defend ourselves if needed? Just be assured that we will do the needful.

      • dareolu1

        the man was wrong, please don’t defend that statement in there….Jesus would never have spoken like that if he was in the same shoes, so who then are we following…..stop that pls!!!

        • Watch man

          Jesus would never have spoken like that if it were persecution, but these murderers are on regional expansion through terrorist act by hiding under religion that promotes violence. Christians should not oppose persecution for preaching Christ as this is part of sharing in His suffering. However, they must not yield to hatred, wickedness and terrorism; no, never. Even Jesus ran away when some fundamentalists picked up stones to stone Him.

          • dareolu1

            ””””Even Jesus ran away when some fundamentalists picked up stones to stone Him””…thank you for noting what Christ would have advised we do…but ‘cut their head and drain their blood’ statement, what!!!!!!!!!, ………………how could a whole Bishop have spoken like this, Bishop Oyedepo dissappointed me, all the men of God who have been known for years seems to have past their time as far as I’m concerned, this days they are so full of errors you wonder if they even bother to pray again this days.may the good Lord help us…

    • Otile

      You Muslims dot no understand the kind of sorrow we feel when you behead Christians to promote Islam. Look at the Christian women you beheaded last and your leaders gleefully acquitted thier beheaders. Look at how the image of prophet Mohammed was depicted in Scandanavia but you Muslims beheaded a Christian Igbo man for the cartoon. What kind of unity do you want with us? Bishop Oyedepo is the kind of leader we need in Nigeria if there is to be peace. May God bless him.

    • amazing2012

      Exactly, you have it all ! Thank you

  • OLATUNDE

    Wole Soyinka has said it all, “religion needs to be tamed”. If Oyedepo could be saying this whether before or now on the pulpit, I don’t think we are blessed with sincere religious leaders who established churches for the gospel brought by Jesus. I want to suggest that what Elder Soyinka said should be taken very serious and government should think on how to start taming these gullible religious leaders, otherwise, they will set our nation on fire. I am very sure this same pastor would have used his pulpit to seek for divine help for Jonathan’s Presidency, bowing before God not to allow his enemy to become president. Now that his prayer is negatively answered, the next thing is to incite your congregation against their fellow muslims.
    Religion is a big problem in Nigeria, even more delicate than tribal sentiment.

    • Olusola

      You could say that again! What would you say when a report landed at your desk saying 1000 churches had been burnt to that date, all churches in entire northern part of Nigeria could not hold vigil again, they start screening members or attendees long way away from their churches. Redeem alone lost how many pastors? While I dont hold brief for Bishop Oyedepo, I can tell you few things can get even you over the limit and set your anger off. Look at the poor woman killed in Kano and the pastor’s wife killed in Abuja, all the suspects have been released. Most of the terrorists have been noticed by SSS in time past, but the usual thing in the entire north is that an Emir or even the Sultan via NSCIA will oblige letter to a local emir to stand as surety to the criminal and he must be released. Are we in the same country?

      “So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them.” (Qur’an 47: 4).

      “Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help”.

      Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”

      Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

      Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

      With the above it s clear that Islam is a terrorist religion full of violence and terrorists must not go free. It is not enough to hide under religion to perpetrate terrorist acts. Islam = terrorism! Terrorists must be punished.

      Jesus commanded his followers to be peace makers, show love and forgives but that in no way translates to foolishness. If the people of southern kaduna can defended themselves, this nonsense in continue killings wouldn’t continue.

    You catch anyone that looks like them, kill him! There is no reporting to anybody. Kill him! Pull off his neck! And we spill his blood on the ground. What nonsense.”……
    I am truly disturbed by the above quotes, full of hate and lack the tenets of speech from a pastor or man of god.

  • Watch man

    There isn’t a difference between persecution for your faith and hatred/wickedness/terrorism. Christians share in the suffering of Christ when persecuted for preaching Christ. But when persecution has moved to hatred, wickedness and terrorism in a bid to occupy a whole region by one ethnic group then Christians should not present themselves to be killed like an animal. Enough is enough!

  • Fair_Justice

    Even if he say that today or 50 years ago what has changed to warrant defending when it was said?
    The evil attackers of every truth about the British abomination called nigeria will not have any thing that will d
    Threaten their criminal lifestyle. The man Oyedepo just like many other so-called ‘men of god’ who choose to wine and dine with Devil than speak against evil will soon start to speak in a forced tongue they cannot control.
    Nigeria ‘was’ and remain a deadly fraud for all. Reject and dismantle it for good or perish with it as fools!

      and how many pieces are you dismantling it into……let’s see if you actually know what you are saying…

  • Abdulkadir

    So two years ago it was justifiable for church members to ‘kill anyone that look like them’? Ridiculous!

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    Most Nigerianchurches-founders and stinking wealthy church owners like Bishop Oyedepo, does not represent the true servant of Jehovah God Almighty, as he has no regards to be classified as decent clean servant of God, as Jehovah God Almighty, is the sole mighty being that knows his true bishop or pastor.Winners university, has the most highest school fees that most average Winners church members,s children can not afford to attend the Winners university.

  • Man_Enough

    no matter when these words were uttered, they are most disgusting and highly unbecoming of a man of God. is it not the same oyedepo who was slapping his church members for committing sin? where are the amnesty international activists? the man should be dragged to the world court for this hate speech.

  • justin

    Is it not better that he said so. Only highly corrupt individuals still believe in one Nigeria. The British experiment in making three Nations a country failed at sampling, and the blind still shouts one indivisible Nigeria. I have asked several times what makes this evil British creation indivisible.

  • Stanley Oluchukwu Amanfu

    it is well. but all i am saying is this: Nigeria can survive with multi religious beliefs and practices and multi ethnicity people coming together to live as one, and for your information God did not create Nigeria Lugard and Flora Shaw did. Thanks to God that Biafra is here already. The Yorubas and Hausas can continue
