The Christian Association of Nigeria United Nations, CAN, call on United States and the United Kingdom to help save Lives of Nigeria Christians who are being persecuted.
The President of the Christian body, Rev. Dr Samson Ayokunle who released a statement through his media aide, Bayo Oladeji, called on the developed countries with resources to fight against insecurity to come to the aide of Nigeria before the situation gets out of hand.
READ THE STATEMENT BELOW:
” CAN Chairman in Michika, Adamawa state, Rev Lawan Andimi, was abducted by Boko Haram terrorists some days back when they invaded the predominantly Christian community. Although, we were told that troops repelled the terrorists but not until they had successfully forced Rev Andimi into their Toyota Hilux and took him away.”
” The innocent cleric, in a video footage released by his captors, has been making appeal to the federal government, the Adamawa state governor, Ahmadu Umar Fintri, and the leadership of CAN to come to his aid.”
“As if that was not enough, there was a bandit attack on Kasaya village, another Christian community in Chikun local government area of Kaduna state on Monday about 6:30 am. The attackers were said to have abducted 41 people, including a Pastor, Rev Joshua Samaila. But up till now, nobody knows what has become of them.”
“Similarly, on 27th November, 2019, Mr. Bitrus Bwala, a principal lecturer at the College of Education, Gashua, Yobe state, and 10 others, who are all Christians, were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists. Bwala in a short video released recently cried out for help. But up till now, the government is yet to secure their freedom or say anything about them.”
“These are all evidences of Christian persecution in the country, and when we cried out in support of the position of the US government, some people would say it was untrue. If criminals are invading Christian communities, killing and abducting people unchallenged, what do we call it if not deliberate persecution?”
“How many terrorists, Fulani herdsmen ‘killers’ and bandits are in the custody of the security agencies? How many of them have been arraigned in court?”
