Obaseki, who has the biggest home for the needy in Benin- City and  is the owner of More Grace Satellite Television, spoke during a media parley with newsmen in Benin-City at the weekend.

“Nigeria is really passing through hard times.  As a man of God, I am not happy with the killings that are going on in Nigeria. The question I really want to ask is, do Nigerians know who these killers are, do we know those who are doing this.”

‘’Sometimes they call them  herdsmen.  Is it really herdsmen that are doing this?  Sometimes they say Boko Haram.  Do Nigerians know the people responsible for this havoc?   Yes it is not advisable to tell Christians to take up arms and fight back.

‘’Christians will always leave vengeance for God. It is not actually good to  kill  innocent people on daily basis. I think the way things are going now, the Federal Government just has to intervene. Nigerians across the country must join hands with government to put an end to it.  Christians in Nigeria are praying for the peace of Nigeria, they are doing their best’’ .
