Authorities in the UK have slammed a n hefty fine of £125,000 on Loveword TV channel, owned by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, for allegedly airing conspiracy theories about Covid-19 that weren’t proven.

Recall that back in December 1st 2020, the TV channel had aired a 29-hour programme called the Global Day of Prayer, during which several unfounded and unproven claims were made about the coronavirus pandemic. These claims had it that the outbreak was ‘planned’, that the ‘sinister’ vaccine can be used 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.

Following an in-depth investigation by Ofcom, the communications regulatory body in the United Kingdom, it was concluded that the programme went against broadcasting rules by sharing ‘potentially harmful’ claims about COVID19.

This makes it the second time in a year that Ofcom has fined Loveworld for making unsubstantiated statements about Covid-19.

In a statement issued, Ofcom concluded Loveworld’s breach of broadcasting rules 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 then 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 existence of COVID-19. Recently, he blasted Christian leaders encouraging their members to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
