President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday received the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye at the State House in Abuja.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, were also around during the visit.

Details of the meeting are still sketchy at the time of publishing this report.

Pastor Adeboye is the first high-profile clergyman to have visited the Nigerian leader since the COVID-19 pandemic started. Worried by the security situation in the country, Adeboye had in February led members of his congregation in a prayer walk against insecurity in Nigeria.

The directive to members of the RCCG followed the declaration of a prayer walk by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to address the spate of killings across the country.

About 25, 000 parishes of the RCCG took part in the prayer walk, according to a statement by the Assistant General Overseer of the church, Funso Odesola
