The  Christians followed the pattern of their Muslim counterparts in the protest who last Friday observed the Jumaat prayer under the watchful eye of the former.

The church service during Sunday’s protest in Lagos at Alausa was led by Pastor Leke Adeboye, son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Tagged, “Interdenominational Protest Sunday Service”, Leke in his sermon, admonished the youths to confront injustice urging them to “Soro Soke” (Speak up) against all forms of oppression and self-serving public officers.

“We are a generation that cannot be silenced, we don’t off our mic here; we always speak loud here. We shall no longer keep quiet in the face of oppression and injustice in our own country,” he said.

In defiance of the ban on protest by authorities of the Federal Capital Territory, the protesters remained on Abuja streets, particularly Banex, Wuse Market, and Kubwa Expressway, Gudu Junction and held a church service near the Ministry of Finance building.
