The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has set aside February 2nd for a nationwide protest.

The protest is aimed at seeking justice for the gruesome killing of the CAN Chairman in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Rev Lawan Andimi, in the hands of Boko Haram terrorists.

They also admonish all Christians across the country to embark on a prayer walk to protest the unfortunate killings of Christians in the north.

CAN President, Dr Samson Ayokunle, on Thursday, disclosed the scheduled protest during a briefing with newsmen in Abuja.

In his speech, he noted that the walk was aimed at rendering prayers for the country to overcome the bandits disrupting the peace in Nigeria.

He also claimed that it would be very hard to believe that the federal government under the present administration was not conspiring with these insurgents to exterminate Christians in Nigeria.

He advised President Muhammadu Buhari to rebuild the security system in the country with a view of improving the safety of Nigerians.

Ayokunle lastly asked that the government label Miyetti Allah as a terrorist organisation, which has persecuted Christians in the northern region.

He said;

”Government should order the arrest of the leadership of the Miyetti Allah for sponsoring and perpetuating crime of Nigeria and prosecute them for all the killings in Southern Kaduna, Benue, Plateau and Taraba states, among others.

“Also, government should publish names of all kingpins of the terrorists in detention and those who are being prosecuted.”
