The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has warned that Christians could also be compelled to react to killings by herdsmen if nothing is finished to tame it.
PFN President Rev. Felix Omobude, gave the warning at a assembly with Christians on the Living Faith Bible Church (aka Winners Chapel) in Jos, Tuesday.
“We call on the government to fish out the perpetrators of this evil across the land. We want to see them get punished; we want to see them answer for their crimes,” Omobude mentioned.
“What has occurred prior to now, and when it occurs like this, is that probably the most the federal government will say is to sentence it. We wish to see past mere condemnation. We need these shielding these evil males to be uncovered.
“We won’t cease to name on Christians to comply with the trail of peace in step with the injunctions of our religion. I wish to sound it unequivocally that the individuals perpetrating this evil shouldn’t suppose they’ve a monopoly of violence.
“The peace drive and peace-making efforts of the church shouldn’t be misunderstood to be a weak point. If pushed to the wall, the church can react.
“There is no law that forbids Christians from defending themselves. We cannot continue to be on the receiving end.”
He mentioned known as “on the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari to rise to the problem and safe the lives and properties of Nigerians. It is the first accountability that the federal government owes the individuals.
“We call on the governments, federal and states, especially when we understand that one of the campaign promises of this present Federal Government was security, to protect lives and properties.”
