The founder of LoveWorld Incorporated, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has questioned the search for a COVID-19 vaccine across the world.
The cleric, who addressed his congregation in a telecast, wondered how it is possible to have a vaccine ready in July for a virus scientists claimed they are still studying.
He said: "A virus they told us they are still studying, they are still studying it. Why don't they study it first? They are still studying it. And they already have a vaccine that could be ready in July."
Oyakhilome also expressed his displeasure over the closure of churches due to the deadly coronavirus.
He said: "Do you know what it means to shut down the congregations of God, do you know what that means? It never meant anything to you, that's why. It never meant anything to you.
"And there were pastors and ministers that were sending strong warnings to others not to venture to enter a church because of the virus. Because Christ has never truly been your Lord. You've been the master of your life all these years. You've never truly known him, you've never known him.
"So, ministers of God gathered together and shut down the congregations of the Lord. How many said let us pray, give us time to pray?"
