Despite the palpable fear of terror attack on worship centers in Ondo State arising from last Sunday attack on a church in Owo, many christians on sunday were in their various churches for service.
Police vehicles however patrolled roads in the state capital even as it was observed that churches beefed up security around their premises.
Speaking with Positive FM , Mr Stephen Agbeko and Mrs Olayinka who worshipped at GOFAMINT Oyemekun Akure both said what happened in Owo was not enough reason to stay away from church but prayed that God would take control of the insecurity problem in the country.
The Akure District Pastor of GOFAMINT Church , Pastor Adegbola Adelabu led prayers for God’s intervention in the affairs of Nigeria and enjoined the congregation to be security conscious.
In a Sunday message , Pastor Anthony Adeyemi while speaking on the sermon titled ” the father’s love ” shared some details about the love of God for mankind.
Pastor Adeyemi quoting from John 15 :13 and Luke 15:11 encouraged christians to always reciprocate the love of God.
Some churches in Igoba , Akure North Council of Area however recorded low attendance as some members stayed away.
Positve FM gathered though there was presence of security operatives in some churches visited especially big worship centers.
