Popular Lagos-based pastor, Ituah Ighodalo, says churches should be closed if it becomes necessary to do so as part of measures to contain the spread of Coronavirus that is currently on its second wave in Nigeria. The clergyman said this when he appeared on Arise TV, today, December 21.
“If we need to. There is nothing sacrosanct about a religious house; a religious house is a gathering of people wanting to worship God. If that gathering and that intimacy in the gathering will lead to the spread of germs or disease, God, because you want to worship Him, would not say that the physical things that you need to do should not be done.So, if we need to shut down the churches, why not? Churches were shut down several months ago. We didn’t die, we survived,” he said.
