The founder and President of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, has angrily predicted the end of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
Daily Independent reports that the clergyman made the prediction on Friday at his church Shiloh programme, while reacting to the unabated killings, and suicide bombings.
Oyedepo shouted, “Today Friday, 12 December 2014, marks the end of the harassment of Boko Haram in Nigeria, because Nigeria has been delivered from these fundamentalists.”

He explained that the economic strides of each part of the country was solely based on the level of productivity which is at variance with any other senseless consideration, adding that defying theories of rational thinking seeking to tear the country apart, must come to an end.
“I am sponsored by no one; I am a servant of the Most High and except I am not sent would you ever hear again of these terrorists’ mindless killings in the country. Their end has finally come,” he said.
Oyedepo, who just turned sixty-year-old was reportedly speaking at the Hour of Visitation morning programme of the just concluded 16th Shiloh, when he rained curses on any political undertone as well as saboteurs in the army, who have compromised the war against terrorism.
The Bishop during the prayer session both on ground in Canaanland and online, also cursed the sponsors, masterminds, informants and executioners of the Boko Haram extremist.
Oyedepo assured that the last attack on any church is the very last the nation would ever witness.
Meanwhile, the shiloh event, which has been decentralised to accommodate millions of participants around the world, and followed across Nigerian cities comprising Maiduguri and Damaturu, had over 2000 delegates drawn from 52 countries.
