25 March 2020 Entertainment
Nollywood actress, Uche Elendu has slammed her colleague and veteran, Hilda Dokubo over her recent post on coronavirus.
Hilda Dokubo had called on pastors with ‘supernatural powers’ to go and lay hands on people who are infected with the dreaded coronavirus and heal them.
The controversial actress took to her Instagram page on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, where she gave reasons why she disagrees with Dokubo’s post.
“With all due respect,🙌 I cringe at this post. My Jesus never went from hospital to hospital, or from one home to the other with the intention to heal people so under what authority will these pastors, you challenge do that?? My bible tells me that 100% of the healing Jesus performed was done by the Faith of the afflicted…
“The bible did not ask pastors to flex muscles by going from hospital to hospital to touch infected people, let us not in the scare of this pandemic make a caricature of the scriptures and the Body of Christ.
“Hold on to the promises of God over your life and Family, Pray, take precautionary measures and Be safe. This will surely Pass🙌,” she said.
