Founder of the Humanist Association of Nigeria (HAN), Leo Igwe says Living faith church General Overseer, Bishop Oyedepo’s claim of healing some members of his church of Coronavirus is reckless and irresponsible.
Oyedepo on Sunday had disclosed that his church has recorded 114 COVID-19 healings. He said the above number had publicly testified of being healed from COVID-19.
Reacting to this, Igwe says Oyedepo’s claim could lead people to indulge in risky behaviours believing their faith will heal them if ever they get infected.
“The claim is weighty, reckless, and irresponsible. His faith healing claim is capable of making people throw caution to the wind, indulge in risky behaviors while believing that their faith would heal them if they contract the virus,” he added.
