“Don’t go and buy guns, we don’t want to kill anyone, we just want to ensure unwanted visitors do not come to our church.
“Samson used the jaw bone of an axe and how do you demonstrate that to the children? You show them the jaw bone of an ass.
“What we are saying is that we don’t need unwanted visitors in our church. If the police come and they find the bone of ass they will understand. All we are doing is to demonstrate to our children,” he said.
The RCCG General Overseer also noted that nobody can be killed until God’s appointed time, appealing to Christians not to stay away from church because of fear of being attacked.
