FCT CAN calls for calm over murder of evangelist
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Federal Capital Territory (FCT) chapter, has urged Christians to be calm and allow the peace of God to reign in their hearts and on the situation that led to the death of Mrs Eunice Elisha.
The FCT CAN Chairman, Rev. Dr. Israel Akanji, in a statement appealed to aggrieved people, particularly Christians, to put on hold any action assuring them that the security agencies would ensure that such occurrence was averted.
“Christians should also know that in all circumstances, the Bible enjoins us to keep loving our neighbours as ourselves and doing good to all,” he said.
He, however, said the circumstances of the killing of the female preacher in Kubwa were worrisome as it could be interpreted as disallowing the right of speech and worship which the constitution defends.
“This action is an evil encroachment on the peace which has existed in the FCT. We believe that this woman went out on her normal morning preaching as the peaceful environment had always allowed,” he said.
He called on the government to “act convincingly about this occurrence to show that it is strongly unacceptable.”
