Insecurity: CAN, Adeboye lead Christian protest across Nigeria


Following the new wave of insecurity in Nigeria, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on Sunday February 2, staged protest across the country. The CAN called on the international community to wade into the plight of Christians in Nigeria as they intervened in cases of Syria, Iraq and other nations of the world where killings and human rights’ violations were rife.

Reverend Supo Ayokunle, president, CAN, who led the protest in Ibadan, said the attacks were targeted at Christians. He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to rise up to his responsibility of protecting Nigerians, irrespective of their religions.

“My message, first of all to the Nigerian government, is to urge the administration to up their game on the issue of security. They said they were trying, but their best is not the best because daily, bloodshed is happening. We cannot be playing politics with the lives of men and women. They have the right to live, and when they are dying we cannot keep quiet.
