Incessant attacks on unarmed Christians is ‘jihadist’ – Rev Afolabi

  
The incessant attacks on unarmed Christin across the country have described as ‘Jihadist terror” according to Rev. Oladele Afolabi, the General Overseer of Christ Base Assembly based in Oworonshoki, Lagos, reports ITRealms.

Speaking to ITRealms on Sunday after complying with the protest march called by the Christians Association of Nigeria nd Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev. Afolabi lamented the killings of many Christians in Benue, Taraba, Nasarawa, Plateau and other parts of the country.

For him, Nigeria, is under siege and requires absolute God’s intervention, stressing that he led the congregation to the peaceful protest to join other members of CANN, PFN in venting their displeasures over the unjust killings of innocent Christians.

The jihadist herdsmen, Rev. Afolabi said, are attacking people on their farms, homes and churches.

“We want the government to wake up to their basic responsibility of providing security for her citizenry.  This present government seems to be unmoved and careless about lives that are being wasted daily,” he said.

Also, the clergy bemoaned that with security situation, some of them are ashamed and shocked about the announcement on daily basis about gruesome killings in the country.

“But the government seems unconcerned,” he decried and listed some demands including an end to these killings, “release of Leah Sharibu, kidnapped by Boko Haram must be released and other girls that were not Christians have been released. She must be released.”


Rev. Afolabi equally reminded the government that Christians' lives matter, insisting that they may do more than this protest if government does not do as demanded.
