(Protest within your Church Vicinity)
With the killing again of Catholic Faithfuls receiving Mass in a village near Makurdi yesterday (24th April, 2018) and the continuous act of bloodshed, CAN calls on all Christian Churches nationwide to stage peaceful protest within their church vicinity to say "NO" to bloodshed in Nigeria on Sunday, April 29, 2018.
Government should be called upon to perform its constitutional responsibility of protecting citizens now. No excuse should be given for this wicked act again and perpetrators must be brought to book now.
Similarly, the peaceful protest must demand for the release of Leah Sharibu, the captive of faith and the remaining Chibok girls. All people in captivity must be released without delay.
We are already at a breaking point and a state of anomie is almost here.
