A video of Bishop David Oyedepo preaching at Living Faith Church has been uploaded to the internet in which Africa’s wealthiest clergymen angrily advocates death for the ‘Islamic demons’ in Northern Nigeria.

“God has anointed me to lead a revolution against Islamic jihadists,” Oyedepo is seen heatedly shouting to his congregation in the YouTube clip. “If you catch anyone that looks like them – kill him! Kill him and pull out his neck. I will spill his blood on the ground. What nonsense!”

“What Islamic demons,” the influential cleric continued, his entire message interspersed with loud ‘praying in tongues’. “If Nigeria waits for the church to rise, Nigeria will disappear as a nation. You mean government cannot protect people? What a mess… Even the president said they (Boko Haram) have infiltrated his government. To do what? Must the North continue to rule? What devils!”

Oyedepo further offered a prayer seemingly supporting a split between Nigeria’s Muslim North and Christian South. “All the Northern forces that are sponsoring these uprisings and killings – I decree the curse of God upon them. Lord, if it is Your will to break up Nigeria – break it now!”

The Winners Chapel Bishop, in his heated address, further implied that the censuses carried out in Nigeria were hugely inaccurate. “Where are the human beings? I wouldn’t be surprised if all the North is equal to Lagos! We have never had a successful census in this country.”

He directly addressed the rumours that Boko Haram agents were targeting his church. “I was even told from reports that they were targeting this church. If you see anyone here, kill him. Kill him and spill his blood on the ground. I am saying that to you. What nonsense! What devils!”

Oyedepo claimed he was sent by God ‘as a prophet of liberation’ to release Africa from the snare of Islamic terrorists. “Therefore, the roots of Boko Haram – whether from Sudan or Saudi Arabia – become rotten today! I stand today with every anointing on me and I declare the Boko Haram camp cursed! I declare their collaborators cursed! I decree their sponsors cursed!”

According to Oyedepo, “I have called the fire too many times. I am privileged to be an expert in calling it. If I look at a witch with my kind of eyes, it is dead. There is no praying. If my eyes meet your eyes, the bigger will consume the smaller one.”

Although there is no date on the sermon televised on Dunamis TV belonging to Abuja Pastor Paul Enenche, the clip was uploaded in November 2014.

Oyedepo’s terse message comes at a time when tensions are already rising in view of the upcoming Nigerian election in February 2015 which will pit former Head of State General Muhammadu Buhari against incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.
