CAN alleges grand plan to wipe out Christianity from Nigeria

18 July 2016, 15:45

Abuja - The General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Musa Asake has disclosed that there is a grand plan to wipe Christians from Nigeria.

Asake made the disclosure in an interview with Punch on Sunday.

He said the body language of the President Buhari shows that he is not interested in addressing the recent killings of Christians in some state across the country.

He said "From the way I see things happening, there is a grand plan to wipe out Christians in this country but by the grace of God it will not come to pass.

"That is why I am saying if the government is not going to protect us, then we have no choice but to protect ourselves. We will not continue to fold our hands and accept being killed for no reason. These killings are going on as usual and we have got to a point to say ‘enough is enough.’ Everybody has to defend themselves.

"Look at the (Evangelical Church of West Africa’s) pastor that was killed in Nasarawa State, have you heard the governor say anything? There was even no sense of sympathy expressed towards the bereaved family. Again, the woman killed in Abuja was a RCCG pastor and Nigeria’s Vice President is also a RCCG pastor. The killing of the RCCG pastor took place where they live and the President didn’t say a word – it is a sad situation.

It would recalled that a preacher of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Deaconess, Jessica Olawale, was hacked to death by suspected Islamic extremists according to News24.

The late Eunice Olawale was murdered at about 5:30a.m. on Saturday at Pipeline, Kubwa, Abuja, as she went for early morning preaching close to her residence.

The House of Representatives last week directed Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris to ensure a thorough investigation of the killing of a preacher,.

The lawmakers also urged the IGP to ensure that perpetrators of the heinous crime are brought to book.
