Nigerians on social media have reacted after notable author, public speaker, and Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Center, Sam Adeyemi, reportedly relocated to the United States.
According to ThisDay, the youth-friendly Pastor had fled due to attempts to convict him for supporting the youths that took part in the #EndSARS protest.
Recall, Adeyemi during the #EndSARS movement in 2020, offered support and was a strong voice to reckon with for the youths at the time, but sadly, his support allegedly cost him more than he’d admit after certain individuals attempted to have the Pastor and others thrown to jail for his support for the October 2020 protest.
For safety reasons, the pastor and his family are no longer in Nigeria but in the United States, it was gathered.
Reacting to the development, Nigerians have voiced their opinion, while some condemned the action, others supported it.
