Christian Association of Nigeria Condemns Sokoto Lynching

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned in strong terms the gruesome murder of a Christian, 200 Level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Samuel by some extremist fellow students on alleged blasphemy.

The unlawful and dastardly action of the perpetrators according to CAN must not only be condemned by all right thinking people but the security operatives must fish them out and prosecute them as it is expected.

The incident according to CAN happened because of the failure of the security agencies and the government to rise up to such criminalities in the past that gave birth to terrorists and bandits.

And as long as the State fails to bring these beasts and criminals amidst us to book, so also the society will continue to be their killing fields.https://www.tvcnews.tv/purplegold/post.php?post=197037&action=edit#
We acknowledge the swift reaction of His Eminence, Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa'ad Abubakar 111 who not only condemned the criminal and religious intolerant action but called on the security agencies to bring the perpetrators to justice.

It is our expectation that the State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, would ensure that the matter is not swept under the carpet, as it was before.

We also call on all teachers and preachers of religious intolerance, extremism and terrorism to repent before the wrath of God descends on them if the State failed to bring them to book. They are agents of death amidst us.

We recall the provocative and demeaning advertisement of the Sterling Bank where the bank compared the Resurrection of Jesus Christ to ÔÇťAgege bread", up till now, nobody was attacked and even the CAN leadership has accepted the apology tendered by its Chief Executive, Abubakar Suleiman. Killing for any God in the name of blasphemy is ungodly, satanic, foolish, reprehensible and totally unacceptable.

This is not a Stone Age and Nigeria is not a Banana Republic. Nigeria remains a non-religious State where no religion is supreme to the other.
We acknowledge and commend the restraint of the Christian students of the College who refused to embrace self-help and reprisal attacks on those who murdered their colleague. It is our prayers that those vampires in religious garments will not push the country to a religious war.
This is why both the government and the security agencies must stop treating them with kid gloves. Enough is enough.
CAN commiserates with the family of Deborah and other bereaved. May God console and comfort them in Jesus Name.

Thanks to many other Nigerians who condemned this heinous crime. It was quite an unfortunate development in 21st century Nigeria.

Chaii, the state of Israel comes to mind..

Till when are the going to keep condemning. Israel despite leaving in the midst of their enemies is standing very strong today because they return fire with greater fire.
The only solution to this is giving them fire to fire.
