Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has said that the Church would proceed with its scheduled crusade despite the state’s supposed “security problems.”
According to Naija02, the Indigenous People of Biafra requested Kumuyi not to stage a crusade in Nigeria’s southeast area on Thursday, citing security concerns raised by “unknown gunmen.”
In a statement issued by Pastor James Akpofure, Chairman, Global Crusade alongside Kumuyi, Coordinating Overseer, United Arab Emirates, stated he is prepared for the event scheduled to begin on May 24.
The statement on Saturday partly reads:
“Celebrating One Year of Global Evangelisation (Global Crusade with Kumuyi).
“We thank the Lord that the Global Crusade with Kumuyi has greatly impacted the World in the past year. This Global Crusade has touched millions of lives with signs and wonders, miracles, and deliverances, spanning participation from over 180 countries and 6 continents.
“As there are currently some security challenges at the intended alpha location (Aba,Abia State, Nigeria), the Global Crusade Convener, Pastor (Dr) W.F. Kumuyi commiserates with our people in Abia State and will be praying along for God’s Divine Intervention.
“This month, the Global Crusade themed “Jesus’ Power for Extraordinary Breakthrough” will be a celebration of one year of Global evangelization,” the statement partly read.
