In his words:
"The wizard at Endor who assumed the title Emmanuel, has been consumed by divine indignation. And now his disciples bewail his ignominious exit. No marvel, one third of God’s angels followed the disgraced anointed cherub Lucifer!!
According to the cleric, God has broken the head of the dragon with his mighty blows because as he is conquering the adversaries of his church.
"Let those who swear by the Lord and by Malcham and the descendants of Haman, now tremble in fear. The day of the vengeance of our God has fully come to Nigeria. And they shall not escape. Operation Hupopodion (footstool) has commenced. More Power To You!!!"
