As the issue of killer herdsmen continues reverberate across the country, a Benin, Edo State-based cleric, Prophet Jordan Iwuala, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the matter as well as other ethnic agitations in the country to ensure that Nigeria remains united and indivisible.

Iwuala, the General Overseer of Redemption Tabernacle Church of All Nations, told journalists in Benin at the weekend that he got a revelation from God indicating that all is not well with the country, therefore, there is need for serious prayers and a sovereign national conference where solutions would be proffered.

Failing to do this, he said, the military may strike after which the military junta would immediately convene the national conference under an emergency rule to avert another civil war in the country.

The cleric also called on the Federal government to discuss and negotiate with leaders of the South-East, South-South and other sections of the country that are aggrieved, to avert crisis that may lead to the dismemberment of the country.

He said, during the revelation, he saw soldiers guarding markets, schools, hospitals, streets and other public places, including churches and mosques, to enable people move about as a result of the crisis.

“The Lord said that if the Nigeria project must remain united, that I, Prophet Jordan Kelechi Iwuala, and Pastor Enoch Adegboye of RCCG should convene a crusade on behalf of Nigeria at different locations namely, Abuja, Imo and Rivers states. At the end of the crusade, a coconut seed must be planted at the venue in the presence of Imams, he said.

He also said that the Lord has warned President Buhari not to persecute anybody under whatever guise as this would cause a major crisis in the country.

Iwuala however predicted that there will be a major crisis in the South-West region and at the end of it, the OPC leader, Gani Adams, would be made to sign a peace accord.

He called on the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, to pray against death, disgrace and humiliation just as he also warned Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, to pray against assassination this year.
