Protect Yourselves And Your Properties In Any Way You Can! – Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor Tells Christians
President, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, yesterday told Christian faithful across the country to protect themselves, their property and churches in any way they could, against any attack, even as he asked Muslim leaders to call their people to order.
Oritsejafor stated this when he paid a visit to St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, the
scene of the Christmas bomb blast at Madalla,
Niger State. Oritsejafor, while sympathising
with members of the parish, said the visit was
to let them know that they were not alone.
“Even though Jesus Christ is with you, we
have come to show solidarity,” he said.
Oritsejafor, who described the Madalla bomb
blast as “madness that should not be talked
about among human beings,” said Christian
faithful should expect the unexpected “when
you are in the world but our belief in God
must be stronger now.”
He said although the Muslim community had
taken a good step by visiting and
sympathising with Christians and victims of
the bomb blast, it was not enough. He said
they should take a step further and help
reach Boko Haram members, noting that the
perpetrators were not spirits.
His words: “We see this as pure madness,
normal people don’t behave like this, even
animals have value for each other not to talk
of human beings.”
