#EndSARS: Oyedepo backs protesters, says ‘lives have no value’ under Buhari
Presiding Bishop , Living Faith Church Worldwide , David Oyedepo , has warned against the shooting of youths protesting against police brutality , extrajudicial killings , and extortion in the country.
He explained that the youths have good justifications to protest , adding that killing them during the protest “ is a sacrilege ”.
He described the regime of the President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd . ) , as the most “gruesome ” in the history of the country.
Oyedepo spoke during the second service of the church , monitored by our correspondent , on Sunday .
He said , “ Every man has a right , legitimately so , to express his displeasure and pains . Everybody has it.
“ I kept quiet for a while because in 2015 I warned this nation, vehemently , consistently … because I saw the dangers ahead and you can tell .
“ The most gruesome season in the life of this nation is in the last five years , where lives have no value , wanton killings here and there.
“ Now , they have faced the youths ; 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 lives is irrelevant , if they are killed when they were youths , will they be here today ?
“ 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 . ”
