Pastor William Kumuyi said his ministry, The Deeper Christian Life Ministry, embraced the use of television, social media, aeroplane, exotic cars and other technological inventions for the propagation of the Gospel.

The 80-year-old cleric spoke in a video uploaded on Sunday via Facebook by the Ekiti State chapter of the church.

The preacher said the church needed to ‘wake up’ after the discovery that ‘wicked people’ were using the provisions of technology to advance their agenda.

Kumuyi, whose church members were known for heavily criticising television, and other gadgets, said:

“People are getting new methods and they are doing evil. These are the last days and evil is growing worse because people go beyond using their natural strengths, natural technology, they use telephones, they use the media, they use all these connections, the Zoom and all these things to expand the evil they are doing.

“If those messengers of Satan are using the present-day technology and they are expanding, how about you? You will use those things available; they are not only available for messengers who do evil, they are available for the people that are doing good. You will use them.

“The church has been asleep. When radio began some years ago, people didn’t understand how voices would be coming out of a radio, and so the church at that time said, ‘No, we cannot use radio, there is something there that is magical, that is demonic, voice coming out from just a gadget?’ The church said no. Then, the people of the world began to use the radio. Then the church woke up.

“When television came, somebody somewhere performing drama, they see him on the screen and then the church said, ‘This is evil, these are the last days, look at them, bringing pictures on the screen and whatever they are doing somewhere’. And the church said, ‘No, we are not going to use that’ but later they woke up and they are now using the television.

“But now the church is waking up and we are seeing that that thing (technology) is to spread the gospel, for the word of God gets everywhere. We will be wiser than the people of the world. The Lord will wake us up.”

Kumuyi, who was criticised last September for using a private jet and limousine to a crusade in Abuja, added that:

“Some people, when the aeroplane came, some people said, ‘We are not doing to use aeroplane’ and they were riding on horses. The bicycle came and they said. ‘God has given us legs and if He has given us legs, why are we going to use bicycles?’

“Motorcycles came, cars came and when the aeroplane came, they said, ‘God has given us the land; He has not given us the space and so all those people who are using aeroplane are worldly, are going to go to hell’. I am telling you what they said in those days but now, all those people, an aeroplane has silenced them and now they can go anywhere.”

The Deeper Life church leader regretted that the church was a latecomer in taking advantage of technological tools.

“Why are you the latecomer, why are you the one to be the last to use all these things that the people are using to make the world worse, we are going to rise up.

“Anything at the disposal of the people that are doing evil, we are going to take it away from them and use it for the propagation of the gospel. Let your NO be changed to YES,” he declared.

Katsina Police Command said it has repelled bandits’ attack at Dabaibayawa village of Batagarawa and Dankiri village of Dutsinma Local Government Area of the State.

SP Gambo Isah, the Command’s spokesperson, disclosed this while addressing newsmen on Wednesday in Katsina over their recent activities in the state.

Isah disclosed that the command had also neutralised six suspected terrorists, recovered AK 47 riffle, 110 cows, and 242 sheep and goats.

“On May 17, 2022, a distress call was received that terrorists in their numbers attacked Dantakiri village, Dutsinma LGA, and rustled an unspecified number of domestic animals.

“Area Commander, Dutsinma led teams of policemen and vigilantes and blocked the terrorists at Mararabar-Sayaya, Matazu LGA.

“The teams engaged the hoodlums into a fierce gun duel, neutralised six terrorists, and recovered 86 cows and 101 sheep and goats.

“In the course of scanning the scene, one AK 47 rifle was also recovered. It is reasonably suspected that some of the terrorists have escaped from the scene with gunshot wounds.

“Search parties are still combing the nearby bushes to arrest the injured terrorists and/or recover their dead bodies and their operational weapons,” he said.

Isah added that on the same day, another distress call was received that terrorists in their numbers, armed with AK 47 rifles, attacked the farm of RTD AIG Lawal Mani, at Dabaibayawa village and rustled all the domestic animals therein.

According to him, “The Officer in Charge (OC), Anti Kidnapping Unit, DPOs of Batagarawa and Batsari were alerted to pursue and block the hoodlums as they were moving towards Rugu forest with the rustled animals.

“Consequently, the team succeeded and intercepted them at Kandawa village, Batsari LGA.

“The team engaged the terrorists in a fierce gun duel and succeeded not only in repelling them but also in recovering all the rustled domestic animals, comprising 24 cows and 141 goats and sheep. An investigation is ongoing.”

Furthermore, he disclosed that the command had succeeded in busting syndicates of car thieves and recovered some stolen vehicles.

Also, he revealed that they succeeded in arresting a suspected member of terrorists who confessed to having participated in several attacks on villages in Safana LGA of the state.
