Adeboye, in a social media post, said though the physical gathering was postponed, the church would keep interceding for Sokoto.

He wrote, “Postponed but God turned it around. We Trust In Our God’s Big Picture Plan!

“When God turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

“We serve a God who specialises in using the impossible situation for His glory.

“If you are in doubt, look closely at the death and resurrection of Jesus! Devil thought he killed Him, but His death and resurrection resulted into life for many. He keeps turning it around for our good. It is in this might that we proceed!”

Stonix News recalled that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had called for a nationwide protest slated for May 22 to demand justice for the slain Sokoto student.
