PFN to FG: Stop herdsmen’s killings in 2 weeks if you have no hand in it

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), South-South region, has accused the Federal Government of its involvement in the wanton killings by herdsmen in some states in the Middle-Belt.

The Christian body said the FG should prove its allegation wrong by ending the spate of killings across the country in two weeks.

The Vice President (South-South) of the PFN, Bishop Simeon Okah, made the allegation on Thursday, May 2, 2018, at a press briefing held at the headquarters of Flock of Christ Mission, Enerhen, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.

The cleric, who insisted that people in government know the identity of the killers, called on the nation’s security chiefs to resign having failed in their duty to protect lives of Nigerians.

Bishop Okah, lamented the wanton destruction of lives and properties of defenceless Nigerians, especially Christians, in different parts of the country in the last three years of the current administration.

He reiterated the allegation that the government was culpable in the ongoing carnage, saying they knew the murderers.

He, however, lauded President Donald Trump of the United States of America (USA), for tasking President Buhari to end the killing of Christians and other Nigerians across the country.

He further alleged that the ongoing killings in the Middle-belt of the country were a religious cleansing, targeted at Christians in the area.

“The federal government, from the least to the top, knows where the forces killing these people come from and if their hands are not in it, they should stop it.

“In another two weeks, if these killings don’t stop, Nigerians should know that the Federal Government has refused to address the issue.

“Buhari is a retired general and what some of us thought he is, if we didn’t over-value him, he has what it takes to stop this whole thing in one week because the storehouses where these arms are piled, not only in the Middle belt, even in Delta here; the country is not safe because there are arms piled up everywhere.

“Where do herdsmen get money to buy AK47? How many cows will you sell to buy one?” he queried.

The cleric joined other notable Nigerians to call on all the service chiefs to resign their appointments having failed in their duty to stop the pogrom in the country.

“Those who have been calling for the sack of the military chiefs have their reasons; our security chiefs can’t deny that they don’t know the source arming these people.

“They can’t deny that some of them are the ones who gave these people those arms.

“If that in Nigeria nobody resigns, even when they are failing, by now our top security chiefs ought to have all resigned and I’m not talking just about the army; all of them, including the DSS and the police, are there.

“It’s only the junior ones who don’t know, the top class knows where arms are piled, they know where they came from,” he noted.

The fiery man of God further alleged that the grand plan of the killers in the Middle-Belt is to wipe out those who mention the name of Jesus, urging Trump to take Buhari to task in preventing this.

“What I will like Trump to still understand, for now, the concentration is on the Middle-Belt, they want to see how everybody who mentions Jesus, in the whole Middle-Belt, is to be cleared, quote me, if anybody doubts me, by the grace of God I can stand and give prove.

“Why some of us are feeling concerned is because the people in the Middle-Belt are not animals, they are not birds or chickens.

“The issue is not just because they are Christians, but because they are human beings.

“That’s why I said Trump tried, but he will still have to call him because apart from the Middle-Belt you all know that there’s killing all around this country,” he averred.

However, Bishop Okah acknowledged that before President Buhari came on board, there were kidnappings, Boko Haram insurgences as well as armed robberies, “but you will agree with me that these last three years all these things have increased.” (Nigerian Tribune)
