The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church (DLBC), Pastor William F. Kumuyi, has said from his observations, the COVID-19 virus is not fake.
Kumuyi referred to theories alleging that the virus was fake or politically motivated, but noted that the experiences of some DLBC members in Nigeria and abroad, showed that the virus is real.
The cleric spoke in Lagos at a meeting with the press ahead of the church’s global crusade which begins on Tuesday.
The event tagged ‘Great Miracle Explosion’, will run till December 26 at the Deeper Life International Conference Centre, Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Responding to a question on the virus, Kumuyi said: “Concerning COVID-19, I want to say that from my observations, from looking at things, I know that COVID-19 is real; it is not fake, it is not a politically arranged thing to do whatever. It’s real.
“We’ve had people who had real COVID19 situations and they were in isolation.
“In fact, one of our men, one of our pastors was about passing away.
“According to him, he had said his last prayer because in that isolation he had seen other people dying, just going like that.
“I knew about it and I called him on phone and prayed with him.
“Within, I would say, one hour, he was completely healed.
“He went to the toilet, got up by himself, came by himself and the Lord brought him back to life.”
