Dr. Enenche leads prayer walk, advises against the brutality of #EndSARS protesters.

The ongoing protests against the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) have influenced some states to embark on prayer walks. The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr. Paul Enenche, led a prophetic prayer walk for the country on Monday. The prayer walk was held in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. 

Together with other members of his church, Dr. Enenche stated that the country is presently facing a series of problems that needs special attention. However, he laid more emphasis on extra-judicial killings and police brutality which is also the reason for the nationwide protests.

The prayer walk started at the National Christian Ecumenical Centre, Central Area, Abuja by 8 am. Dr. Enenche was accompanied by his wife, Pastor Becky. They were followed by thousands of people across the city as they prayed for Nigeria.

Dr. Enenche stated that the ongoing protest wasn't just triggered by the increasing cases of SARS brutality. Rather, there are more critical issues presently boiling in the hearts of Nigerian youths. More so, the youths are outraged by poor governance, less concern for human lives, and poor welfare of the citizens.

After the prayer walk, the renowned cleric spoke to journalists. He said that Nigerians are tired of the unending problems of this country. He termed the problems as national wahala. Hence, the people are frustrated and saw the need to protest.

In his words: "The Bible says righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach Every time people stray from God, a lot of disastrous things happen. Looking at what is happening in Nigeria, the counsel is everybody; from the topmost to the least must seek the face of God.

"In the land of Nineveh, when the land was facing impending disaster, Jonah the Prophet spoke according to the word of God and everybody fasted and prayed from the topmost to the least until the disaster was averted.

"That is my counsel today; people must seek the face of God. So, what we came here for is to give spiritual and prophetic backing to our nation. We know that this nation is passing through a terrible situation and we cant ignore it. The uprising and the things you are seeing are indications that all is not well.

"So, we came for a spiritual dimension to the situation in our country with the aim of trusting God for an immediate solution so that this situation does not escalate to a disastrous dimension."

Dr. Enenche did not conclude his words without lending his voice to the #EndSARS protest which is presently ongoing nationwide. He said:

"#EndSARS protest is a reaction to what is going on in Nigeria, particularly as regards to extrajudicial killings. For me, that is one aspect of monumental problems we have in our land. #EndSARS means end injustice, oppression, subjugation, poverty, hunger, nepotism, and bigotry. It also means end every evil in the nation.

"We are doing the prayer at the same time as the protests because this time calls for aggressive spiritual intervention. I think that when people are pushed to the wall, they react, and that is what I think the youths are doing. It is not about SARS issue, but about a general problem.

"I, therefore, call on the relevant authorities to find an immediate solution. Open your ears to what is happening and take action to arrest the situation immediately. It is not the time to play the ostrich.

"So, it is not the time to bully anybody. It is time to admit that something is wrong and something must be done and it must be done urgently."

The #EndSARS protests have been peaceful for some days now. However, some hoodlums have hijacked the process. They have also used it as an avenue to extort people, cause mayhem, and threaten the peace of the land. The protesters are often attacked by thugs who are not in support of the protests. 

On October 19, the protests in Edo state went to another level as hoodlums hijacked the process. Police stations were razed; properties were destroyed; there was also a report of a jail break. These sad events led the government to impose a 24-hour curfew in the state. 

A police station in Orile, Lagos state was also razed as hoodlums took over the protests. Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu has also imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state.
