The wife of the Ooni of Ife and the founder of En-heralds Ministry, Prophetess Silekunola Naomi Ogunwusi, has charged religious leaders in the country to work harder to reduce the scourges of kidnapping, killings and other senseless crimes in the country.
Ogunwusi said faith remains one of the potent weapons to fight crimes in the Society, saying religious leaders must join the fray to make Nigeria a peaceful nation.
She spoke in at the palace of Ogoga of Ikere Ekiti, Oba Adejimi Adu on Wednesday during the commencement of a 3-day revival in the town organized in concert with Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN).
Ogunwusi added that increasing crimes in the country in spite of the proliferation of churches didn’t connote that all the church leaders were deceptive and unGodly.
The Queen turned evangelist added that the body of Christ had been working with governments to rid the country of crimes.
“There are so many people who are using the name of Christ to do evils. But the body of Christ must work harder, we have a lot of work to do in view of the ways people were being killed, kidnapped and maimed by bandits.
” We have been praying and preaching against these but we must know that crimes had been before the coming of Jesus Christ and we should not forget that we are having more children on daily basis and the more e do this, the more we must intensify efforts to preach Christ to them to help them grow stronger in faith”.
The Ogoga of Ikere, Oba Adejimi Adi, appreciated the Prophetess for her prayers for the country, saying it will help the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi in his strides to reposition Yoruba race.
“It is rare to see the wife of a monarch like Ooni, the Arole Oodua and the leader of Yoruba race to be going around to spread the gospel and praying for the land, we are very lucky this time in the southwest to have a leader who knows Christ”.
