The Redeemed Christian Church of God has predicted that the violent Boko Haram sect will not last beyond 2015.
The Head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, said the ministry was committed to safety of its members and was increasing security measures around its branches across the country and beyond.
Adegbiji spoke on Wednesday at Redemption Camp in Ogun State during a briefing on the church’s 63rd annual convention.
The convention, with the team, ‘The All Sufficient God’, will hold from August 3 to 9, 2015.
Speaking on the recent killings of six members of the church by a suicide bomber in Potiskum, Yobe State, Adegbiji said the insurgents had gone beyond their boundary.
He said, “We are passionate about the safety of our members and indeed the safety of citizens of this country. We prayed against Ebola, that it should get out of this country and whether you believe it or not, God answered our prayers and it left. Boko Haram is a monster and it will be defeated this year.
“We are working on the security of our churches. If those people should attempt to do that next time, they will be in serious trouble.”
