How I almost got killed for supporting Tinubu – Prophet Godwin Ikuru

Prophet Godwin Ikuru of Jehovah’ s Eye Salvation Ministry, has revealed how some Nigerians tried to kill him after he declared his support for the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, prior to the February 25 presidential election.

According to him, he received many death threats as a result of his prophecy that Tinubu will defeat all his political opponents to emerge the winner of the election. He stressed that many Christian leaders across the country were against him due to the Muslim- Muslim ticket of the former Lagos Governor.

The Independent reported that the Ijaw- born Lagos- based cleric made this known while speaking to journalists on Monday, stressing that the revelations from God and his belief in Tinubu’ s capacity kept him on track.

According to Nigerian Tribune, he said: ” Supporting Asiwaju is one of the most dif­ficult and threatening things I ever did in my life, I received life- threatening calls on many occasions.

” They threatened to kill me if I didn’ t exit the movement. I was not daunted because I know that my life is in the hands of God who called me to do his work. ”

Speaking further about how he was treated for supporting a Muslim- Muslim ticket, he said the decision was one of the toughest decisions ever made by him.

He explained that ” pastors and Christian bodies in Nigeria made me enemies because of this.

” They abused and called me names because of this, but I was not deterred because God does not care about reli­gion. He told me that Tinubu will win the election and I’ m so happy he did because I was honoured by my prophecy as one of his leading prophets, ” he added.

It could be recalled that many prominent Nigerians who came out to declare their support for Bola Tinubu prior to the presidential election, were abused by the members of the opposition parties, particularly on social media.
