Should farmers be killed for Fulani herdsmen to live? – Bishop David Oyedepo Speaks

Bishop David Oyedep Apparently irked by the spate of wanton killings across the nation by so-called Fulani Herdsmen and the disturbing insufficient action and prolonged silence of relevant authorities to curb the situation that seems to have gone on unabated, the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church worldwide, David Oyedepo has sounded a note of warning to Nigerians and asked should farmers be killed for Fulani herdsmen to live? The Apostle of Faith gave this strongly-worded warning during the five services on Sunday January 14, 2018 at Faith Tabernacle, Ota, the renowned 50,000-capacity auditorium. Reading from a written speech, a visibly angry cleric raised many pertinent questions including the rights of farmers and native land owners; the value for human life in Nigeria; sponsors of the killers who are disguised as herdsmen; whether cattle rearing business is private or government’s, among many other questions. The Bishop who has repeatedly talked about a 1992 revelation where God unveiled to him the current state of the nation, ended with several prophetic verdicts: “He that killeth by the sword shall fall by the sword; Nigeria will not be destroyed for the sake of the elect,” etc. Excerpts: (Note: The subtitles in green/italics were inserted for emphasis) “Prophets have the responsibility to engage fervently on the prayer altar for the salvation of the soul of a nation. Prophets have a duty to warn people, warn nations against impending danger. I’m sent as a prophet to the nations and He grants me access to divine confidentialities about nations. So, I have this wake-up call to a nation in its state of slumber.” Boko Haram in Disguise “Insurgency is spreading across the nation under the guise of Fulani Herdsmen, danger is looming. For example, how many of these killers have been brought to book since their campaign of carnage, dearth and destruction began, one may ask. They must have the backing of some invisible powers. A nation-wide crisis or unrest is in the offing and may be worse than anyone known around the world. Now, tell me what is the morality behind some strangers, who are doing their business as cattle-rearers to overrun your farm with your labour of planting, cultivating and nurturing your plant, and graze their cattle over your crops, and when you challenge them, they kill you on top of it? Where are the leaders of thought in Nigeria? Where is the government? And that continues unabated. We are sitting on the keg of gunpowder. God spoke to me about it as far back as 1992, that a time like this was coming; it’s plainly written in my diary. Nigeria shall not be destroyed. God shall trouble all the troublers of the progress and peace of this nation. A Nation At War With Herself “The destiny of our nation has never been under any threat of survival as it is today. People may soon be forced to take laws into their hands. The security apparatus of the nation has obviously failed to defend the lives and properties of these poor farmers across the nation. Where we are claiming to curtail the Boko Haram onslaught, we are on the other hand sponsoring or abetting Fulani Herdsmen and their murderous acts. Nigeria is a nation at war with herself. No external aggressions or aggressors, not ethnic crisis, no natural disaster, yet we are doing mass-burials. What a nation in a state of slumber? Hear the voice of the Lord through this prophet. The soul of Nigeria is near the point of death. Citizens of this nation are fast becoming endangered species. God have mercy! Should Farmers Be Killed For Fulani Herdsmen To Live? “Let me ask these pertinent questions that bother on conscience of a nation and her leaders. Is cattle business government business? Should farmers be killed for Fulani Herdsmen to live? Should all the farmers leave their farms today in the fear of Fulani Herdsmen? As at the last time I knew, Nigeria still produces less than 20% of what she eats. What is the contribution of the Herdsmen and their cattle business to the GDP of Nigeria? There is more to this slow response of government to addressing this sensitive issue which is obviously a time bomb. Are Fulani Herdsmen the Owners of Nigeria? “Question number 2: Does Nigerian land belong to the Fulani Herdsmen? There has never been this kind of assault on the intelligence of the people like we have it now. Should you allocate my father’s land to Fulani Herdsmen? Never! There will be brutal response. No, No. Are they now the customary land owners of every state, city, town, village and hamlet in Nigeria? There is danger in the offing. Every community may soon set up their own security system to defend the insurgency of the Fulani Herdsmen. Do You Still Trust the Security Agencies? “Question number 3: Can the citizens still trust the security agencies of this nation for their protection? You will be vulnerable for life! Where citizens cannot trust government for security, a state
