Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Christ Embassy Church has lashed out at pastors preaching and advising worshippers to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Oyakhilome, who had previously spread conspiracy theories about COVID-19 was seen in a recent sermon shared on his church’s YouTube channel, questioning the faith of pastors advising congregants to take the jabs.

He said, “I can’t understand how a minister of the gospel would be waiting for some vaccine to be the solution for the world. Where is your faith? What happened to you?
