The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Nigerians at home not to avenge the attacks on their compatriots in South Africa.
Nigeria and South Africa locked in bitter diplomatic row over the xenophobic violence in the former apartheid country, leading to the looting of property belonging to Nigerians.
According to him, Nigerians travel to South Africa in search of greener pastures since there are fewer opportunities for them in their country.
In his sermon that started at about 11pm during the September edition of the monthly Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday, Adeboye said, “I beg you in the name of God, don’t retaliate against South Africa.”
Everyone is now speaking up on this issue, yet those who should be saying something, are not saying something.
