Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer (GO) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has condemned the raping and killing of Vera Omozuwa Uwaila, a student of the University of Benin, Edo State.

During a live program on DOVE TV on Sunday, Pastor Adeboye vowed not to rest in prayers until the perpetrators of rape are accorded a stiffer penalty.

The popular cleric who described Vera as his daughter lamented that the issue of rape had become rampant in the society.

He described rape as bad and unbiblical, adding that it could leave a permanent scar on the victim for the rest of her life.

Pastor Adeboye said: “Myself and prayer warriors will not rest in prayers until the perpetrators of this evil are brought to justice, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.

“Everyone who has ever committed rape, particularly in Nigeria and the world, the all-knowing God will fish them.

“As much as I hate death sentences, I think every form of punishment that will be given to a rapist cannot be considered too severe.

“Anyone, whoever thinks of raping someone again, the almighty God will stop them even before they do so and if they insist God will take them away.

“I am calling on every Christian all over the world to please join me in this prayer.”

Adeboye also urged those who had not surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ to do so in order to reach the desired place of the destiny God had designed for them.
