The Christian Association Nigeria Lagos State Chapter has denied that the national christian body issued a statement allowing large church gatherings to hold on Sunday.
Speaking during a TV interview, Alexander Bamgbola, Lagos state Chairman, CAN, said the association was carried along in drafting the directive that limited social and religious gatherings to 50 people.
He described as totally untrue the claim that CAN had been responsible for telling churches to go ahead with holding services as usual.
Bamgbola said that although his church had some people in attendance, they were not more than 20 and they stayed three feet away from each other.
“We are in a very tough situation, we must listen to instruction from the government. Whatever the state or governor says is what we must follow because it is in our best interest.
“When trouble comes like this, you must look up to God but you mist obey instructions. People should stay in their homes in the interest of all Nigerians. Go and stay in your homes, pray and look up to God. he said
