Head of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has pleaded with Nigerians not to attack South Africans and their businesses in response to the violence unleashed on Nigerian citizens and other African migrants in the former apartheid nation recently.
Making the plea during his sermon at the September edition of the Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday, the respected clergy said that not engaging in retaliatory attacks was in the interest of Nigerians still living in South Africa.
He said, “I beg you in the name of God, don’t retaliate against South Africa.
“Don’t retaliate because of the Nigerians who are still in South Africa.
“Let us leave this job to the governments, let them solve this problem at the governmental level.
“Pray for them that God will give them the wisdom, the understanding, the ability to do it.”
