Nigeria Government Conspires with Boko Haram to massacre Christians -― CAN Raises Alarm

Nigeria Government Conspires with Boko Haram to massacre Christians -― CAN Raises Alarm
Rev. Dr Samson Supo

…Declares 3-day prayers, fasting

…Calls for total overhauling of security architecture

…Passes Vote of No Confidence in security chiefs

…Condoles bereaved

…Calls for help from International community



The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Dr Samson Supo Ayokunle in reaction to the murder of a church leader, Reverend Lawan Andimi in Adamawa State by the insurgent group, Boko Haram said “almost losing hope in the government’s ability to protect Nigerians especially Christians”. Andimi while in captivity made a passionate appeal to the leadership of his church and the Federal Government to come to his rescue.

CAN claimed in a statement made available to the media that “the Church did everything within her reach to secure the safe release of this pastor gentleman but it was not possible because they didn’t have the military power to do so. “Just last Sunday, a clergyman, Rev Denis Bagauri was murdered by unknown gunmen in his residence at Mayo Belwa of Adamawa State. “The Church views the unabated kidnappings, extortions and killings of Christians and innocent Nigerians as shameful to the government that each time boasts that it has conquered insurgency.

“It is reprehensible and saddening that each time the government comes out to claim the defeat of the insurgency, more killings of our people are committed.

– FG colluding with Boko Haram – Accusing the Federal Government of colluding with the insurgent, Boko Haram, CAN stated; “In the light of the current developments and the circumstantial facts surrounding the prevailing upsurge of attacks against the church, it will be difficult for us to believe that the Federal Government under President Mohammadu Buhari is not colluding with the insurgents to exterminate Christians in Nigeria bearing in mind the very questionable leadership of the security sector that has been skewed towards a religion and region! Is that lopsidedness not a cover-up for the operation of the insurgency? “If not, why couldn’t the well-equipped security agents of Nigeria get this man killed rescued?


– CAN calls for calm – “While we call on Christians to be calm, we challenge the Federal Government led by President Buhari to be more proactive about effort to get rid of the continuous siege on Nigeria and end the wanton killings and destructions of lives and property of Nigerians if the government is to be taken seriously.
