The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reportedly asked the general overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, William Kumuyi to suspend his planned crusade in Aba.
The crusade titled; ‘Jesus Power for Extraordinary Breakthrough’, was scheduled to take place in the commercial city of Abia between Tuesday, May 24, and Sunday, May 29.
According to newsmen, Emma Powerful, the IPOB spokesperson, asked the crusade to be suspended owing to the insecurity in the area.
He noted that gunmen could disrupt the crusade and hold the IPOB group responsible.
“We wish to advise Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper life Ministry to take note of the security situation in the southeast as he comes to Aba for his gospel crusade. Let him and the organisers of the crusade make sure that nothing happens.
The security of this region is not good because of political and criminal activities, therefore, we advise him to stop this crusade for security reasons.
IPOB will not allow anyone to die because of this crusade scheduled to hold in Aba. The operation of criminals operating as unknown gunmen infiltrating the events is high and they will blame it on IPOB.
We ask him to pray for an end to the insecurity in Biafra land if he can. We charge Christians and men of God in Biafra land to engage God in fervent prayers to expose all those behind the insecurity in our land.
They are the real problems of the people. Let him use the opportunity to pray against the powers holding people captive in Nigeria in his church in Lagos.”
