God was not pleased with the government or the state of the nation, according to the Bishop, who said God had commanded him to do so.
The cleric clarified that his actions were the product of a “more than one-year spiritual quest.”
“From the 15th of September 2019 until this moment, I have not eaten food cooked by fire or any good food, I have been seeking the face of God over this great country,” he was quoted as saying.
“Last week, I had a mortal break, which consisted of solitary confinement in which I didn’t speak to any person in order to be with the trinity’s cabinet, and I didn’t see the sun, moon, or clouds.
“What you’re seeing me do right now is just what the Prophets of the Old Testament will do. When God wishes to send a message to the nation’s leaders, he will ask them to bear a sign.
“He said to me, ‘Go and bear a coffin on your head; it is not furniture or something for interior decoration; it is useless; it is used to bring a man to sleep at the end of his life.”
“Tell the leaders that they have purposefully drained the popular resources that belong to this great country and have brought suffering on the people, I am not satisfied with it,” Benjamin said he received from God.
The Archbishop urged Nigerians to tell their leaders the truth, describing the country as a disappointment to God, who “brought together people of different ethnicities and provided them with wealth.”
“However, those in power have decided to make the country’s commonwealth their personal property, which is why I am carrying this coffin; God is not pleased, and he is saying it is not only government leaders, but religious and traditional leaders as well.”
Benjamin explained that he did not take it to the Aso Villa, Abuja’s seat of influence, because God had not asked him to do so yet.
“We have found ourselves in a government that treats you as an enemy when you are critical in your criticism,” he said.
The clergyman emphasised that the only way forward for Nigeria is for those in power to sit down and determine whether or not the nation should remain united.
“The call for secession is heard all over; the question is whether it is God’s will for all of this to occur. “We need to sit down at a round table and re-examine what brought us together and whether or not those things are still relevant today,” Benjamin said.
