Controversial cleric, Prophet T.B Joshua has said the ease of the Covid-19 lockdown that was declared by the Federal Government is a step in the right direction.
The founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) who recently returned from an undisclosed prayer mountain said the lockdown order is an evil spirit that could lead to laziness, addiction and suicide.
According to him, “Our government doesn’t know that lockdown is a spirit, an evil spirit – spirit of laziness, spirit of depression, spirit of suicide,” he said.
“Those who once surrounded themselves with people find themselves surrounded only by four empty walls. This can cause depression and suicidal thoughts.
“Those who never stayed on a spot are now confined to one spot. Our government doesn’t know this. They think they are protecting us from the spirit of COVID19 but what is COVID-19 in comparison to the repercussion?”
“Our government, our leaders, our presidents, you are doing good for the world but what you are trying to protect us from is not as dangerous as what you are putting us into.
“That spirit that has entered your life – spirit of fear, spirit of addiction, spirit of violence – be cast out! Be cast out! In the name of Jesus!”
Recall that the ease of the lockdown was declared by President Buhari to begin in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja on Monday, May 4, 2020
