Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu last week announced that religious centres in the state can reopen for worship beginning from August 7.

The governor indicated that both houses of worship will be allowed to conduct services only if they adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols which includes wearing of face masks during service.

In a statement released on Thursday, August 6, Okotie who’s church is based in Lagos, revealed it will not reopen for services. According to Okotie, the wearing of face masks is unacceptable during services as it defeats the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary.

“Citing various Bible references, the clergy said, for Christians to wear any type of mask or face shield to church, is to reintroduce the veil which was torn the moment Jesus died on the cross. With the tearing of the veil, there is no longer separation between God and his people.

When a man is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he is denying the finished work of the cross.” he said
