Oyakhilome had in a viral video last week claimed that that the 5G network is responsible for pandemic ravaging the world currently as unknown powers are attempting to facilitate a “new world order”.
He also alleged that the lockdown declared on Lagos and Ogun states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was to lay optic cables for 5G network and not curb the spread of the virus.

But in a video which circulated on social media on Sunday, Oyakhilome said he was astonished by the capability of 5G having learnt more about the network model.
He stated that he had only criticised the new wireless network because of the possible health risks associated with it, adding that the relevant regulators did also not make their stance known on the matter.

He said: “I have to look at my calling as a priority and I’m into the healing ministry. You may be a pastor or a minister and not be into the healing ministry, this may not concern you. I’m a science and technology enthusiast. I love technology.
“Just studying the capabilities of the 5G makes me, like, ‘Wow! I’d like to go on it like tomorrow morning. I’d like to start it right away.’ But at the same time, I’m into healing, I know what it means for people to be sick. I meet with sick people all the time. And so, no matter how interested I am in the 5G, I’m going to put health first.
“Are there health risks? What are the health implications? Those are my concerns and I became even more concerned when I found out that regulators didn’t seem to care much in looking into the details and the cause of the independent scientist and experts, medical doctors.”

The cleric stated that while he embraces technological advancement and is ready to utilise it, he, however, stated that the health hazards of 5G should not be relegated to the background and are rectified.
“If there are health risks, they should be fixed. We want to go on extraordinary technology but we must also consider all the health implications. That’s my point,” he said.
