A UK based television station owned by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been sanctioned by Ofcom, the broadcasting authority in London.
The authority penalised Chris Oyakhilome’s Loveworld Limited, which runs the Loveworld channel that can be viewed in the UK, “after a news programme and a live sermon included potentially harmful claims about causes of, and treatments for, Covid-19”.
The famous cleric has linked the virus to 5G networks and alleged that it was part of an agenda to create a “new world order”.
Such views have been widely rubbished by scientists, saying the idea of a connection between Covid-19 and 5G is “complete rubbish” and biologically impossible.
Ofcom said that the programme “Loveworld News included unsubstantiated claims that 5G was the cause of the pandemic, and that this was the subject of a ‘global cover-up'”.
Ofcom also criticised a sermon that was broadcast that questioned the motives of those looking for a vaccine.
