Nigeria polluted, defiled by blood shedding – Osun cleric, Adeoye



An Osun-based cleric and General Overseer of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministries, SGTM, Bishop Seun Adeoye has stated that the unending shedding of innocent blood in Nigeria has negatively impacted the country.

He made this assertion at Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State, on Monday.

Taking his message from the Book of Numbers chapter 35: 30-34, Adeoye noted that the shedding of innocent blood constituted grievous offence before God while such land is declared by the scripture as “polluted and defiled”.

He said God specifically in verse 33 warned that, “we shall not pollute the land” because “blood defileth the land” and that “the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it”.

Bishop Adeoy lamented that thousands of innocent souls have been murdered by bandits, terrorists, separatists, kidnappers, ritualists, mobs and other armed gangs.

“Unfortunately, we all look away unconcerned as if such dastardly acts are normal in our society.

“Any land where innocent souls are killed without justification is placed under the curse of God, and the word of God says that the only remedy to atone the land is to shed the blood of the killers. That is blood for blood!

“We may not know it but I can say this that the uncountable blood of innocent souls shed in Nigeria are daily crying for revenge. They are asking for blood. But glory be to God that there is the excellent blood of Jesus, already shed and available for the atonement of the land,” he stated.

The cleric urged Christians who understood the great spiritual importance of the blood Jesus shed on the Cross and the power of His resurrection to pray fervently to God to be merciful on Nigeria by healing the land.

He explained that the menace of hunger, economic hardship, untold suffering and several other challenges ravaging the country is beyond what any politician can resolve without God’s intervention, saying that Nigeria’s land need to be cleansed without delay.

He called on President Bola Tinubu to invite Christian leaders in the country with the aim of declaring a day or a week of atonement for the cleansing, healing and prosperity of the land, adding that this will lead to “total recovery” of the lost glory of Nigeria.
