A Nigerian cleric, Pastor Chris Okotie, has alleged that the COVID-19 pandemic is a conspiracy between Satan and one of the richest men in the world to reduce the world’s population.
The founder of the Household of God Church, in an 80-minute video on YouTube, accused some powerful individuals and businessmen of being behind the spread of the dreaded virus.
Okotie, a former presidential hopeful, alleged that the sinister objective was being supported by multilateral institutions and key leaders.
He particularly called out the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, for leading a global conspiracy to destabilize the world economy and execute a “satanic agenda” against the church.
The cleric said that the COVID-19 is a “red herring” meant to disguise the intentions that could cause death on a large scale.
He said: “People have asked me if we’re dealing with the number 666; if this is about the antichrist. Is this about you taking that number and the eternal damnation that is the consequence of that?
“No. We’re dealing with another number that is the precursor to the number 666. There’s a man who is the protagonist of this whole process that we’re seeing today. His name is Bill Gates.
“The year 2020 was particularly chosen by Satan as the year when he would challenge the authority of the almighty God upon the face of the earth in preparation for the coming of the antichrist.
“How is he going to do it? First, he’s going to get a man who has the pattern and that man is Bill Gates. And then, there will be a conspiracy to bring in a pandemic, sickness.
So he brings disease, sickness. They’ll create panic in the world. At this point, you’ve been asked to remain in your house because he must challenge God’s authority through fear.
“What Gates will do under the auspices of the UN is to make sure we no longer form the house of God. What Bill Gates is doing through his name is to stop people from congregating.
“We’re dealing with one of the most sinister conspiracies in human history. What we call an online church is untrue. To be a church, you have to be called out. Cyberchurches are totally unscriptural”, he argued.
