The Presidency yesterday queried the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for not condemning the call by General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, for killing of Fulani herdsmen.

The Department of State Security (DSS) had invited Apostle Suleman over his recent alleged inciting comments that Christians should defend themselves against attacks by Fulani herdsmen.

The cleric was quoted to have said “Any Fulani herdsman you see around you, kill him. I have told them in the church here, that any Fulani herdsman that just entered by mistake, Kill him, Kill Him. Cut his head. If they are busy killing Christians over there and nothing is happening, we will kill them and nothing will happen.”

A Presidency official yesterday queried: “Is CAN aware of this kind of statement? Is it in line with Christian conduct? Why hasn’t there been a condemnation of this kind of criminal conduct. There is some understandable outrage about cases of violence in Southern Kaduna, yet this coming from a religious leader is certainly even more outrageous.”

The official, who pleaded anonymity, said all religious leaders, be it Christian, Islamic or traditional, should condemn Apostle Suleman’s call and call him to order.

He said the Federal Government had been sending reinforcements to Southern Kaduna and would enforce the law against perpetrators of violence and was seeking the cooperation of all religious leaders not to support hate speeches that call for even more violence. (Daily Trust)
