Head pastor of Latter Rain Assembly recently posed with a banner which read ‘Rescue Our Girls Now’ addressed to the government but smiled while taking the photo.

Well, the picture was seriously criticized by Nigerians on social media who felt it was a serious issue and he shouldn’t have smiled in the photo since his message was bothering on terrorism.

When the popular pastor was contacted by Sahara Reporters, he told them that he smiled because he knows God is bigger than Boko Haram and the Federal Government of Nigeria as a whole.

He said: "I smiled because God is bigger than Boko Haram and the Federal Government of Nigeria. He is in heaven and us on earth.

"To the question why do the heathen rage and why do they imagine vain things, the Kings of the earth plot together against the Lord and against His anointed. God's answer in Psalm 2 will shock you. It says he that siteth in Heaven shall laugh, and that was my posture in the photo," he stated.
