The General Overseer, The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that prayers can put an end to Boko Haram insurgency in the Northern part of the country, News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The cleric made this statement during a courtesy visit to the Deputy Governor of Borno State, Usman Kadafur, at the Government House, Maiduguri, on Thursday.

He said, “There are problems that you cannot solve with just human ability. It takes God to get some of these bandits to surrender because even if one offers them everything, some of them may still turn their back and go back to what they were initially doing.

“We have come to pray on the land. My congregation and I have been praying. I believe God wants me to step on the land and cry and pray for the land and we have been praying since Wednesday.

”We went around the world. The Church was in 196 locations globally. Sir, I thank the almighty God for this meeting as this is the first time in my life of visiting Maiduguri…”

The octogenarian also spoke about how he has been supportive of the Borno State government. He said, “In our own little corner at the headquarters in Lagos, we have tried whatever little bit we could to show the government that we are particularly interested in Borno State.

“We built a little primary school, a skills acquisition and vocational training center where different trades like shoe making, sewing and other trades are being learnt.

“We also built accommodation for some of the displaced families and also contributed to the hospitals by bringing machines for kidney dialysis, but much more than that, we have been praying.”

On his part, the deputy governor said, “We are happy that men of God like you are visiting our state to pray so that God can forgive us and restore peace.”
