The Offics of Communications, (Ofcom), United Kingdom has sanctioned Loveworld Television Network, a station owned by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.

According to the statement by ofcom, Oyakhilome’s claims that the 5G technology was responsible for COVID-19, were harmful statements which were not presented with due accuracy.

The regulatory company added that, Oyakhilome breached Rules 2.1 and 5.1 of the Broadcasting Code, thereby imposing a sanction while considering whether to impose any further sanction.

It will be recalled that Oyakhilome had on April 7, 2020, while commenting on the link between 5G and Coronavirus said, “With the classification of a weapon, 5G technology is very dangerous.

“When it comes into contact with a human body, it can provide some poisons to the cells because our bodies try to fight the radiation, kicking out some protein and some DNA cells in a form of a chemical, which is called a virus. This shows that what’s killing people is not Coronavirus but 5G.”

More so, the regulatory body said Pastor Oyakhilome’s statements was capable of undermining the work of the health authorities in curbing the spread of Covid-19 and ought to be checked.
