CAN Calls On FG, Edo State To Investigate Attack On Apostle Suleman


Nigerians Celebrating Christmas In Hardship, Suffering, Fear – CAN

The leadership of the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Federal and Edo State governments to conduct a detailed investigation into the attempted assassination of the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman.

The association, which had earlier condemned that attack also requested that everything within its power should be done to bring the perpetrators of the incident to book.

The CAN leadership noted that the development and other recent attacks in Edo state and other parts of the country at large are very disturbing.

Naija News reports that the CAN President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh in a statement signed by himself said warned churches and Nigerians to be security conscious at all times, adding that security agencies should do their best over the Abuja terror alert.

Okoh said “the national leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, vehemently condemns in its entirety, the recent assassination attempt on the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, and the killing of his aides.

“The national leadership of CAN commiserates with the Omega Fire Ministries International and the family of those who lost their relatives in the ugly incident.

“While we call for a full-scale investigation into the dastardly act that claimed several innocent lives, let all hands be on deck to uncover the identities of those involved in this heinous crime and bring them to book.

“We urge the Federal Government and the security agencies to see the incident for what it is, a sign of the nation’s wobbling security system, and act quickly to address the situation.

“Similarly, in view of the US Embassy’s warning of a possible terror attack by bandits in Abuja, CAN appeal to our security operatives to wake up to the challenges of securing people’s lives and property to avoid the consequences of a resort to self-help.

“We must do whatever it takes to stop those plotting to eliminate innocent citizens anywhere in the country by brutal means, from achieving their ignoble objectives. They must not be allowed to continue their wickedness.

“While CAN appeals to Churches and by extension all Nigerians to be vigilant, and alert security agencies of any suspicious movements in their vicinities, we will continue to pray for lasting peace and security in our country in Jesus’ name. Amen,” the CAN president submitted.
