A young man has taken to social media – Twitter – to call out his pastor for his cruel and insensitive comments over the #EndSARS memorial that held yesterday.
Recall that yesterday, 20th October, 2021, made it exactly one year since the Nigerian military killed hundreds of Nigerian youths who came out on a peaceful protest to ask the government to scrap the terrorist police unit, SARS, starting from Lekki toll gate, then to other parts of the country.
In response to the memorial, a certain pastor Wisdom took to his WhatsApp status to condemn the protesters for remembering the fallen heroes, and went ahead to call the memorial ‘ignorant and foolish’ demonstration.
The pastor wrote;
“If you’re a a Christian and you’re posting things about a certain protest you’re ignorant or foolish. Some one was in quote murdered during a protest and you’re remembering them; Jesus who died for you since about 2000 years, have you remembered Him?”
