COVID-19: Cross River Government to seal churches with more than five members

The Cross River State Government has threatened to seal any church that has membership of more than five on Sunday.

The Senior Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Religious Matters, Fr. Bob B. Etta disclosed that task force has been set up and would be going round to monitor the compliance on Sunday.

In a statement issued in Calabar, Cross River State capital, Fr Edu said, “A Task force will be going round the State to monitor compliance. Any church caught will be sealed.”

He said that the statement was to remind all Ecclesiastical leaders about the Governor’s directives on COVID-19 and in consonance with the adoption of the directives by Christian Association of Nigeria, Cross River State Chapter.

“All Religious gathering with more than 5 persons are suspended in Cross River State. As Religious leaders, it is our responsibility to protect the lives of our followers. Let’s demonstrate that commitment this Sunday,” he stated.

He said the Church is not the Physical building, but the People.

“Though our doors are closed, our hearts are with God. Families are encouraged to hold their devotions at homes and Pray that God save us from the impending doom.

“As a People of Faith, let’s storm the Heavens with our Prayers. May God hear us, amen,” he concluded.
