CAN: Group condemns alleged killing of Christians in the North


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the alleged killing of Christians in the Northern part of Nigeria.

Citing the recent killing of eight people in Zamfara state, the CAN President Rev. Supo Ayokunle, said Buhari’s administration is anti-Christian, Premium Times reports.

Also speaking on the case of  the trader in Ogun state, Joe Chinakwe  who named his dog Buhari, Ayokunle said “The NBA should take up that case and ascertain whether the man has the right to give any name to a dog. They should come and protect the man’s human rights and set the record why the case is not a criminal offence.”

The CAN President also alleged that Christians are being selectively persecuted by the Nigerian Police and the Department of State Services (DSS).

He said “Have the DSS arrested the Muslim youths who burnt down a Catholic Church in Niger State because they were worshiping on Friday? What happened to the ECWA Pastor who was killed in his farm in Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State? What have happened with Redeemed Preacher who was murdered in Kubwa, Abuja?

“Look at the recent case in Zamfara State, Christians where burnt alive. What has happened? They will tell you, they are still investigating. Have they been arrested and charged them to court? If the government cannot sit up and protect Christians, tolerance is going to break down, they should do the right thing, they should not provoke Christians. Have we ever seen this government bring anybody to book?”

Ayokunle also accused the United States Secretary of State,
