The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has described the ongoing killing and kidnapping of Christian clergy in Nigeria as disturbing and unacceptable.
“As an organization that worships God, we pray that God’s wrath will fall fiercely upon all those responsible for terrorizing Nigerians and killing innocent citizens,” noted Bishop Francis Will Oke, PFN President, in a statement.
The statement condemned what it called “the horrific murder of Rev. Father Isaac Ashi of St. Peters and Paul Catholic Church, Kavin Koro, Local Government Area in Baikoro State, Niger State, by bandits.”
She explained that, according to reports, the bandits broke into his house at around 3 am on January 15, and after failing to enter the house, set fire to the house and burned the clergyman to death.
The network indicated that a colleague of the deceased, Father Collins, was shot in the shoulder while trying to escape and was quickly taken to the hospital, describing the incident as very unfortunate.
The statement added that the killing of Achi is indeed the killing of many, saying: “The ongoing killing as well as the kidnapping of Christian clergymen in Nigeria is deeply disturbing and unacceptable.”
The organization deplored the situation in which Nigeria has become a killing ground where people are slaughtered like animals and the perpetrators go free.
This must stop at all costs. “The government must do everything in its power to put an end to this evil,” the statement said.
The Front called on the federal government and security agencies to intensify efforts to save what it called “this ugly situation” and to give Nigerians a new lease on life, stressing that the chaotic and barbaric work continued for a long time without anyone being arrested. by the government.
According to the organization, criminals may believe they have escaped the judgment of man, but they can never escape the judgment of the Almighty and All-Seeing God.
The National Charity Association directed its heartfelt condolences to the Acehnese family and the Catholic Church, praying to God Almighty to comfort them and ensure peace and unity in the country.
