Nigerians may bear weapons in churches, mosques –YOWICAN
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Christian Association of Nigeria (Youth Wing) has raised fears over the spate of kidnapping in the country, warning that citizens may resort to carrying weapons to churches, mosques, while travelling and wherever they find themselves.
The organisation, therefore, called on the regime of the President, Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies to sit up and act now or never.
National Chairman of YOWICAN, Belusochukwu Enwere, raised the fears in his speech titled, ‘Kidnapped RCCG members: Nigeria on the march to Golgotha’, delivered at the just-concluded leadership retreat held in Abuja, on Sunday.
He was reacting to the kidnapping of a bus filled with Christians from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Kaduna Province 1, who were said to be going for a prayer work in Kafanchan, Punch reported.
Enwere said Our hearts bleeds that a bus-load of Christians from RCCG from Kaduna Province 1 going for a prayer work to Kafanchan was abducted on their way. The incident of kidnapping is a case too many and has left bitter tastes in our mouths.
“The government must rise now and take responsibility of the security challenges going on in the country. How could citizens be taken away just like that without a trace?”.
