Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted the Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum over the recent demolition of a church building in the state.
The government on Thursday last week demolished a church building belonging to the Local Church of Brethren, LCB, under Ekkliziyan Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN), a.k.a Church of Brethren Maduganari.
The incident had triggered outrage from several concerned Nigerians, including the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, which asked the governor to immediately rebuild the destroyed structure.
Despite the demolition, worshippers converged at the site on Sunday for normal church service.
Reacting, Femi Kayode in a post on his verified Facebook page on Monday, said no one can stop the body of Christ from growing massively.
He wrote, “No matter how hard ANYONE tries, knocking down Churches will not stop the massive expansion and growth of the Christian faith.
“The Church was founded on the blood of the martyrs and the crushed and broken bodies and bones of the saints.
“Governor Zullum of Borno state bulldozed the Church building but he could not stop the faithful from going there to worship even on the stones and the rubble.
“Kill us a thousand times and millions more will rise up and grow.
“The gates of hell shall NOT prevail against the Church of Christ.
“I am so proud of the Christians of Borno State. They must always remember that they are not alone: God is with them and we love them”.
