Nigerian-born and Nigerians will forever remember the sacrifice at Lekki – Pastor Paul Adefarasin

After the Nigerian army shot dead unarmed protesters outside the toll station in Lekki on Tuesday 20 October, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, CEO of House on the Rock, said that Nigerians, born and unborn, will never forget this sad incident. …

He described this day as Black Tuesday.

“We cannot erase from our collective memory how the disbelief of a nation turned into shock, horror, grief and untold pain when our unarmed children were shot, wounded, maimed and killed in a peaceful protest.

“We will not forget how our democracy and our nation received an almost fatal blow from the brute force and deadly violence of our own soldiers, using the Lekki booth as a shooting range and our children as a shooting range!

“May the souls of those whom we have lost rest in a perfect world; and we assure you that, remembering them as martyrs, we consider it our duty to ask for and achieve justice for their cold-blooded murder, ”he said.

In his statement, Adefarasin prayed for the healing of all those who were injured, lost loved ones or were injured as a result of the bloody massacre in Lekki.

He said they were not alone and that he felt their pain, saying: “We pray with you and stay with you.

Dear Father, with one voice we pray for our people and ask for your divine intervention and healing for our nation.

“We ask for peace and justice in our land. We remain true to Your Word even as we stand up for our rights and seek justice in Jesus name. “
