“We urge President Muhamadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency, restructure the security in his government, I believe this is the only way this crisis and killing of Christians will stop. You can’t do the same thing often and expect a different result. You have to change gear; that is why I said the only way forward to stop this nonsense killing of people is by total restructuring of the security agencies in this country, Eches said.

“The church is not a place of contracting COVID-19, it’s a place of healing, government should have ensured the protocols are maintained and not to lockdown the church, it is not having a good effect. When you disconnect the people  from God, the government pays for it and that is why you are seeing what is happening today,”  Eches said.
