ICC Note: Members of the Asaba Christian Association are speaking out against the constant slayings of innocent Nigerians in states all across the country. Archbishop God-Dowell Avwomakpa led the protest and condemned President Buhari’s claim that Nigerian’s are lazy. He also had said that churches have been praying for a better economy and that the president would help empower people to be able to support themselves and their families.
05/05/2018 Nigeria (Sahara Reporters) – Like their counterparts in other parts of the country, members of the Asaba chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have also embarked on protest to show their anger over the indiscriminate killing of people in different parts of the country.
Archbishop God-Dowell Avwomakpa, chairman of the South-South CAN, who led the protest told Daily Post during an interview that the continuous killings in Benue and other states by herdsmen prompted the protest.
He pointed out those who lead Nigeria at independence have continued to rule the country in one way or the other almost sixty years after.
He also warned that the killings going on in the Northern part of the country may snowball into a religious war unless urgent action is taken to curb it.
“The continuous killings of Christians might spell doom if urgent steps are not taken to curb the situation.
