Tunde Bakare, serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, said on Sunday that his church will not reopen. He had urged his members not to let anyone “whether religious leader or governmental leader, to drive you like a sheep to the slaughter.”
In the same vein, the Household of God Church, led by Chris Okotie also said his church will not reopen. He described the wearing of nose mask in church as against the teachings of the Christian faith, likening it to a veil between man and God.
