Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Anambra State Chapter, has described herdsmen and Boko Haram killings as more dangerous than the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.
In a press statement issued on Tuesday and made available to our correspondent in Onitsha, the State chairman of CAN, Rev. Ndubuisi John recalled that since the emergence of COVD-19 till date, Nigeria has recorded not up to 100 deaths from Coronavirus, while insurgence has claimed hundreds of lives of innocent citizens of Nigeria.
According to him: “For instance, last month in Yobe State, Nigeria lost 100 gallant combatant soldiers to Boko haram insurgents who ambushed and battered their lives with bullets.
“Oh! what a loss to Nigerian government two weeks ago in Plateau State where herdsmen waylaid the Miango Community, killing as many people as they could since they have the monopoly of deadly weaponry.
“Few weeks ago at Askira Uba, a community in Borno State, the raging Boko haram insurgents invaded and shattered the unarmed community with bullets and sending many of them to early grave.
“My question therefore is, where are the true elders of this great Nations, Nigeria? Will you all be shouting bravo in the face of all these ugly socio/political atrocities and religious upheavals?
“Do you not know that some States are gradually dying out in this country? How many Governors have cried out to the federal government seeking for security aid?
How much blood do we want to spill before the dying cry of the masses in Nigeria be heard? “Arise Oh compatriots, Nigeria call obey, to serve our father land, with all God-given ability and save the beauty of togetherness and brotherhood in Nigeria which is the philosophy behind one indivisible Nation.”
