Abuja preacher’s killing damns Buhari’s peace ef­forts – CAN

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

The Chris­tian As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (CAN) in Plateau State has de­scribed the killing of an Abuja fe­male preacher, Dea­coness Eu­nice Olawale, as a set­back to Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s peace ef­forts.

A state­ment signed by CAN State chair­man, Soja Be­warang, said, “Given the ef­forts our pres­i­dent to strengthen peace and mu­tual co-ex­is­tence in the coun­try, an act by the ruth­less killers of Eu­nice whose gospel mes­sage was not di­rected to any par­tic­u­lar per­son is cer­tainly aimed at abus­ing, frus­trat­ing and caus­ing a set­back to Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s peace ef­forts.”

Be­warang, while con­demn­ing what he de­scribed as de­lib­er­ate at­tempt by some un­godly peo­ple to in­tim­i­date Chris­tians from ful­fill­ing their mis­sion, stressed, “Ev­ery­day seems to bring worse news to our co-ex­is­tence and free­dom of pub­lic ex­pres­sion of our faith.”
