General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi has cancelled his planned crusade in Southeast states following warning from the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB over the activities of unknown gunmen in the region.
It would be recalled that IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful had issued a press statement warning the Deeper Life Church Pastor to consider the cancellation of his planned Crusade in Aba from May 24 to 29 over possible attack by Unknown Gunmen.
Emma Powerful said he issued the statement as an advice because whenever Unknown Gunmen attack, Nigeria Security Operatives do accuse IPOB of being responsible.
According to Punch Newspaper, an official of the Global Crusade With Kumuyi confirmed the cancellation of the Aba crusade in a telephone chat with the Newspaper on Saturday, and noted that a new venue would be announced for the crusade.
The Newspaper also reported that, the Chairman of the crusade’s organising team, Pastor James Akpofure, corroborated the development in a statement on Saturday,
“As there are currently some security challenges at the intended alpha location (Aba, Abia State, Nigeria), the Global Crusade Convener, Pastor (Dr) W.F. Kumuyi commiserates with our people in Abia State and will be praying along for God’s Divine Intervention,” Akpofure said.
