Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Winners Chapel, has kicked against the government';s decision to continue the ban against religious gatherings due to the Coronavirus pandemic .

The Federal government placed a ban on social and religious gatherings as part of measures to stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus, but markets have remained open.

However, speaking during the Covenant Hour of Prayer programme of the Church held at it';s headquarters in Otta, Ogun state today May 6, the clergyman said he suspects foul play and that ';the voice of darkness is targeting the church because the growth and expansion of the church is the greatest headache of the devil. ';

According to Oyedepo, the church has recorded more healings than any other place yet they are closed while hospitals that record huge deaths have been left opened.

“There is something wrong, for people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and cannot be in church for two hours, it is an upside down way for looking at things.

Which one is more orderly? The market or the church?

I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me on it strongly on it yesterday. I can smell a rat behind all this. It is how do we stop  the church from exploding.

The voice of darkness are influencing people at various levels targeting the church because the growth and expansion of the church is the greatest headache of the devil. But the gates of hell shall not prevail.

The devil and his agents shall surely pay for this.

I don';t know what hospital that records the kind of healings that the church of God records. And now hospitals where people die everyday is open but the church is closed.” the Bishop stated

He went ahead to declare that the world is free and the nations are liberated from continuous lockdown.
