Speaking at a recent service, the General Overseer said, ‘If you have been listening to the news, you will hear of an outbreak of Meningitis. We don’t want any kind of plague to come near our children.
‘So, we want to anoint them and set them apart. So, make sure all children are there at the special Holy Ghost service for children.’
The disease has claimed close to 400 lives across 16 states in Nigeria.
The charge by the RCCG clergy has been met with criticism from a section of Nigerians who feel medical vaccination is a better preventive move than the spiritual.
Meningitis is an acute inflammation of the membrane covering the brain which is caused by viral or bacterial infection.
It is a deadly disease that kills in a very short time if not treated.
