Why Pastors Must Not Pray For Israel Amidst War With Palestine – Odumeje

Controversial Onitsha-based cleric, Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, better known as Odumeje, has given reasons why Nigerian pastors must not pray for Israel amid its ongoing war with Hamas in Palestine.

Recall that on October 7, Hamas, a terrorist group, currently governing the Gaza Strip of the Palestinian territory, infiltrated Israel and unleashed an unprecedented attack that resulted in the death of over 150 Israelis.

More than 4,000 people have reportedly been killed on both sides since the latest conflict began.

Addressing his congregation, Odumeje, in a now-viral video, threatened to make any Nigerian pastor who keeps calling for prayers for Israel “deaf and dumb”.

He, however, urged clerics to rather focus their prayers on the challenges bedevilling Nigeria.

He said, “Your own country Nigeria, you have not prayed for your president who does not know left and right.

“Any pastor I hear say pray for Israel… If you pray pim for any Israel, I will make you deaf and dumb. Pastor agbero.”

Odumeje’s warning comes a few days after Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeem Christian Church of God (RCCG) deleted the prayer post made to Israel amid its war with Hamas in Palestine after coming under fire from netizens.
