At least 15 people were killed and about 50 wounded during a second day of violent anti-United Nations protests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s eastern cities of Goma and Butembo, authorities have said.

The dead included demonstrators and UN personnel as UN sites were attacked by crowds. A Reuters journalist reported seeing UN peacekeepers shoot dead two protesters as people threw rocks, vandalised and set fire to UN buildings in Goma.

This is coming weeks after Popular Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church released warnings for the United Nations against attack in the 2022/2023 edition of his annual book of prophecy titled Warnings To The Nations.

On Page 300 of the prophecy book, Primate Ayodele revealed that he foresees an attack against the United Nations officials and the UN building in some countries. The man of God further noted that the UN will have issues with some countries and they will be asked to leave.

In DR Congo, The protests were called by a faction of the ruling party’s youth wing that accuses the UN mission, known as Monusco, of failing to protect civilians against militia violence.

“Mobs are throwing stones and petrol bombs, breaking into bases, looting and vandalising, and setting facilities on fire,” deputy UN spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters in New York.

These were Primate Ayodele’s words

‘’UNITED NATIONS : I foresee that a one-time Secretary General of the United Nations will face several challenges in coming years. Also I foresee that a former Secretary General of the world body will pass on. They need to be very careful because they will fight so many battles in terms of global economy and world security. There will be many complicating matters that will happen in the world in respect of the global economy. I foresee an outbreak of diseases that the UN Director will be worried about. There will be some threats against UN official even the UN building. The UN will have problems with the government of some countries. They will raise money to prevent crisis. The UN needs prayer and should take steps because there is going to be mutual understanding between countries on certain issues of common interest. I foresee that countries will disagree with the UN concerning certain issues affecting the world. They should rebuke the death and kidnapping of their officials. The UN must be careful and watchful of attacks against their offices. The UN will try to re-structure so many things in certain countries. I foresee that the United Nations will be bereaved’’

Of course, the prophecy of Primate Ayodele has been fulfilled with the crisis being faced by the United Nations in DR Congo.

Nigerian Military Confirms Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy, Reveals Terrorist Plans To Attack More Prisons

The Nigerian army have released an intelligent and classified information concerning the plans of deadly terrorists to attack three more prisons in Nigeria. They are prison facilities in Gusau, Birnin Kebbi, and Katsina.

Of course, this has fulfilled the prophecy of popular prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church who had warned of these attacks beforehand and at different times.

Primate Ayodele’s warnings to correctional centers dates back to the 2020/2021 edition of his annual book of prophecy titled Warnings To The Nation. On page 189 of the prophecy book, the man of God revealed that he foresees attacks on Nigerian prisons and that there will be jail break in the country.

These were his words

‘CORRECTIONAL CENTERS (PRISON)

I foresee there will be jail break in Nigeria. I foresee that the Correctional Centers will be attacked. I foresee that personnel of the Correctional Centres will be attacked. Prisoners will make bonfire at the Centers. I foresee changes in the leadership of the Correctional Centers. The Comptroller General for the Correctional Service will be changed. Officials heading most of the Correctional Centers will be changed. There is need for the Correctional Centers buildings to be taken care of to avoid troubles’’.

Ever since, Nigeria has been experiencing attacks on correctional centres. One of the most deadly was in 2021 when over 1,800 prisoners were freed by unknown gunmen in Imo state.

The man of God has also not stopped warning Nigeria concerning jail break as God has continued talking to him concerning attacks on Nigeria’s correctional centres. During the release of his prophecies for 2022, Primate Ayodele still included that Nigeria will experience jailbreak and attacks on correctional centres in the new year.

Confirming this, deadly terrorists attacked Kuje Prison in Abuja some weeks back, broke into the prison facility and freed some inmates that are still at large till now.

Furthermore, Primate Ayodele released the 2022/2023 edition of Warnings To The Nation on Saturday, 9th Of July, 2022 and on page 318, the man of God still maintained that there will be more attacks on Nigerian correctional centres.

To confirm this word of prophecy, the military announced earlier today that terrorists are planning to attack the aforementioned prison facility soon.

No doubt, the revelation of the Nigerian army has confirmed the accuracy of Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
