The national leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) yesterday described the killing of Christians across some states especially the recent one in Abuja as brutal and unacceptable.
CAN said: “authority’s inaction is becoming unbearable and may not be tolerated anymore.”
It called on Christians all over to always be ready to defend themselves against further attacks.
One of such attacks was the murder of a 42 year old Christian mother of seven children, Mrs. Eunice Elisha, who on Saturday July 9, 2016, was brutally killed while on Christian evangelism
Mrs. Elisha was murdered in Kubwa area of Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in the early hours of the day.
CAN advised authorities both at the states and federal level to do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to justice before the crisis gets out of control.
A statement issued in Abuja by the General Secretary CAN, Rev. Musa Asake: “The unprovoked attacks on Christians and the authority’s inaction is becoming unbearable and may not be tolerated anymore, inasmuch as we will continue to call on Christians to remain tolerant and law abiding, it is becoming inevitable to also call on them to buckle up and be ready to defend themselves against these incessant unprovoked and mindless attacks.
“The National leadership and the entire members of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have received with rude shock and disbelief the report of yet another religious hatred murder of a dedicated 42 year old Christian mother of seven children, Mrs. Eunice Elisha, who on Saturday 9th July, 2016, was brutally killed while doing Christian evangelism.
