A popular Nigerian Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been slammed with a £125,000 fine by the
authorities in the United Kingdom for airing conspiracy theories about Covid-19 that were unproven in Love World Television Channel.
It was earlier reported that the pastor during a 29-hour programme called the Global Day of Prayer made lots of claims with the notion that the covid-19 outbreak and the introduction of vaccines where a sinister plan of the global government to implant ‘nanochips’ that can control and cause harm to members of the public and the theory that the virus was somehow caused by 5G.
Reports gathered from a reliable source said that the detailed investigation by Ofcom, the communications regulatory body in the United Kingdom, has concluded that the programme breached broadcasting rules by sharing ‘potentially harmful’ claims about COVID19.
This marks the second time in a year that Ofcom has petitioned Loveworld for making unsubstantiated statements about coronavirus.
In a statement released, Ofcom concluded Loveworld’s breach of broadcasting guidelines were ‘serious, repeated and reckless. The broadcasting authority said that the TV channel posed a risk of ‘serious harm’ to viewers who tuned in to watch the programme.
‘Loveworld’s failure to put these unsubstantiated statements into context risked serious harm to its audience,’ the statement said.
Ofcom added that the religious channels had the ‘potential to make people question the measures put in place to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
‘They had the potential to undermine confidence in public health measures put in place to tackle COVID19 at a time when cases, hospital admissions and deaths were rising in the UK, and when people were looking for reliable information given advances in the vaccination programme” Ofcom statement read
Pastor Oyakhilome has repeatedly expressed doubts about the COVID19 pandemic. Recently, he blasted Christian leaders encouraging their members to take the COVID19 vaccine.
