A Television channel in the Uk owned by one particular of Nigeria’s most flamboyant evangelical pastors has been sanctioned by Ofcom, the broadcasting authority in London.
The authority punished Chris Oyakhilome’s Loveworld Constrained, which operates the Loveworld channel that can be considered in the Uk, “after a information programme and a stay sermon included perhaps harmful statements about will cause of, and remedies for, Covid-19”.
Pastor Oyakhilome has connected the virus to 5G networks and alleged that it was aspect of a plot to generate a “new planet order”.
This kind of views have been greatly condemned by scientists, who say the concept of a connection among Covid-19 and 5G is “complete rubbish” and biologically not possible.
Ofcom explained that the programme “Loveworld News bundled unsubstantiated statements that 5G was the trigger of the pandemic, and that this was the subject matter of a ‘global protect-up’”.
Ofcom also criticised a sermon that was broadcast that questioned the motives of those looking for a vaccine.
The Uk authority reported that it was not from controversial views, but these had to be “put into context” and not undermine trust in the wellbeing authorities.
