Senior Pastor Of Daystar Christian Center, Sam Adeyemi today addressed 5G conspiracy theories making the rounds.
In an Instagram live video with Poju Oyemade ,Senior pastor The Covenant Nation, Adeyemi said he studied how the 1918 pandemic affected Nigeria, so he could give perspective to his followers on the novel coronavirus disease.
“I went online, there was a pandemic 100 years ago, let me go and study it and check it out, because the interpretation that people are giving to this pandemic, they range from one extreme to the other,” Adeyemi said.
“I don’t even want to go into the details now, but there’s quarrel on social media now; from 5G to 10G and other things. I decided to check, how did it affect Nigeria?
“I found a research article by a history lecturer at the University at Birnin Kebbi. Beautiful research! I had to buy it. But I was happy buying it, because when I read it, it was amazing, it dug into the British archives, all the records that the colonial officers kept.
“[In] 1918 September, when the thing hit, the way air travel now is the main thing for global transportation and it was air travel that moved the coronavirus around, it was sea travel that spread the influenza around then.”

“The ships that brought sick people into the Lagos port; I got the names, the dates they arrived, how it spread in Nigeria“. he continued
“I’d tell you the one that I saw and almost screamed, they closed churches, they closed mosques, they shut down schools, they shut down markets. 1918. So, some of us now think it is the anti-christ that is at work, he does not want us to gather together and fellowship.
“We should just be thanking God that we have internet now and we can be relating without meeting together. They shut churches in 1918. So when the leader takes perspective like that, then you can calm people down and tell them there will be life after this thing.”
He encouraged religious leaders to make research so they’re well equipped to lead their flock in face the novel Covid-19 pandemic. He also cautioned Christian Leaders against spreading false news, conspiracy theories and panic.
