Popular Nigerian preacher Enoch Adejare Adeboye, on Sunday, led a street protest calling for an end to the spate of insecurity and killings in Nigeria.

The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God was followed by hundreds of his congregants to march on the streets.

He told his congregation during prayers that “Lord, have mercy on Nigeria. Let there be peace and security in Nigeria.

God sees all things and knows where the terrorists are hiding, we pray that God sends His light to Nigeria and expose the evildoers in the country.”

He instructed his church followers across Nigeria to embark on the protest, saying “the prayer walk was aimed at offering prayers and supplications unto God to save Nigeria from being consumed by insurgents, terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers, militants and ritualists in all our states.”
