Thousands of #EndSARS protesters on Sunday morning held a worship service at the Lagos Assembly protest ground in continuation of the protest that has now entered the 12th day.
The service was tagged an Interdenominational Protest Sunday Service with the theme; “The Glory of the Latter House”.
Son of Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Leke Adeboye who presided over the service, read the book of Haggai Chapter 2: 9.
“I am speaking from the good book, some people call it the Bible, I call it the Holy Book, the book says, the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former, this is what is happening in Nigeria right now.
Commending the protesters for speaking louder against oppression in the land, using the now popular mantra ‘Soro Soke’, which literally translates; Speak Loud, he admonished the youths to always speak up against injustice in the land.
“We are a generation that cannot be silenced, we don’t off our mic here, we always speak loud here
“We shall no longer keep quiet in the face of oppression and injustice in our own country”, he said.
Pastor Leke later led the protesters in prayer to the nation. Prayers were also rendered for Lagos State and individuals then, an altar call was made for protesters to align themselves with Christ so as to be partakers of the good of the land when God turns around the situation of the country.
The popular Saxophonist, Kunle Ajayi led the protesters in singing the second stanza of the National Anthem in a prayer mood while the protesters were all on their knees.
They said the first stanza of the National Anthem is for the senior citizens in the country while the second stanza is for the youths of Nigeria. Wole Arole and other singers continued to lead in danceable songs as the protest continued.
