Christian Association of Nigeria Condemns Ekwusigo Killings, Calls for urgent investigations

By Amos Tauna

President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, has appealed to the federal government through the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to address the issue of proliferation of arms and ammunitions in order to curb insecurity in the country.

He commiserates with the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Maduabuchukwu Obiano and the families of the victims of the killings that took place at St. Philip’s Catholic Church on Sunday.

A statement by Ayokunle on Sunday, said that the police in Anambra had confirmed that a gunman killed eight worshippers and injured 18 others in an early morning attack on St. Philip Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo local government area.

“What are these silly gunmen here and there turning our nation to be? Whatever may be the reason or reasons for this dastardly act cannot justify this criminal jungle justice. Without doubt, the act is a madness the all of us must condemn in strong terms.

“The perpetrators of this ungodly act must be brought to book without delay. I call on the Police to fish out those responsible and there must not be any cover up. Enough of these killings in the country.

“If the places of worship are no longer safe again, what has become the security of lives and property?

We pray to God to console and comfort all the bereaved and heal those who are recuperating in the hospitals,” he cautioned.
