THE Edo State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has expressed disappointment at what it called unwholesome harassment of pastors and church members who opened their churches based on the pronouncement of the state governor.

A communique issued at the end of a recent executive committee meeting of the Edo State chapter of PFN on May 4, the PFN resolved to demand the cessation of unlawful harassment of the Church in Edo State.

The Pentecostals in Edo State, therefore, demand that churches should be allowed to reopen with full compliance to the extant guidelines.

It noted that “PFN is not unaware of the efforts of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN and the efforts of churches to be closed for two weeks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria and Edo State, the markets are allowed to run, and the populace are also allowed to move about to a reasonable extent which is commendable.
