A video clip is currently circulating in the social media alleging a plot by the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to restrict the activities of prominent men of God from Nigeria.
A message in the video quoted ‘a source inside Aso Rock’ as saying there was a plan by the government to set up an agency tagged ‘National Faith Relations & Regulation Commission (NFRRC)’ allegedly designed to monitor and regulate church operations. A former police inspector general, Suleiman Abba, has allegedly been penciled to head the agency.
It was revealed that three outspoken Nigerian pastors were the first target of the plan; Bishop David Oyedepo, Apostle Suleman and Pastor Paul Enenche, “who would be accused of engaging in hate speeches.”
According to the video, the agency would also be tasked to regulate church messages against ‘hate speeches’ and ‘scrutinize churches’ accounts’ as well as restricting pastor from maintaining foreign accounts’.
“It is Satan’s warfare against the Church, which is the primary subject of Revelation 12 and 13”, notes a Lagos based cleric who confirmed the message video was real.
Around the world today, Christians are protesting alleged victimization and rising genocide that they suggest ought to provoke global alarm. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania.
