Bishop Oyedepo Speaks on #EndSARS Protest

Bishop David Oyedepo, presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church, backs #EndSARS protesters calling for extensive police reforms and an end to rights violations in Nigeria.

Oyedepo while speaking during the second service of the church on Sunday said the present government is leading a regime with no regard for human lives.

He also stated that the Nigerian youth have the right to express their displeasure on the current state of affairs in the country.

adding that he had been silent on the issue so far because he warned Nigerians in 2015.

We have been having spades of protests across the nation, Every man has a right, legitimately so to express their displeasure and pain, everybody does.

“I kept quiet for a while because in 2015 I warned this nation vehemently consistently because I saw the danger ahead and you can tell.

the most gruesome season in the history of this nation is the last 5 years, where lives have no value, quantum killing, now they have face the youth, and because they don’t know who is next, they have a right to say enough is enough.

“Any system that has no value for human-right is irrelevant, if they were killed when they were youths will they be where they are today? And now it would be a sacrilege to shoot the protesters who are not looting, who are not ravaging.

“When you push a goat to the wall then you will know that goats have teeth to bite. “It is a sacrilege to kill youths during a protest, this protest is legitimate,”
