I released Abducted Schoolgirls’ Names Without Consent Of NOSCEF, CAN – Owojaiye

Bring-Back-Our-Girls-Protest-300x224The former Chairman of the Northern States Christian Elders Forum, Evangelist Mathew Owojaiye, said NOSCEF, an affiliate of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, did not give the go-ahead for the release of the document containing 180 names of the schoolgirls abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.

In a statement on Monday, Evangelist Owojaiye said he made the comments strictly in his personal capacity and not on behalf of CAN or NOSCEF.

“I would like to clarify some of the comments I made over the weekend as they have been reported in the media. My comments were made in a completely personal capacity, and in no way should have been considered to be the positions of either the Christian Association of Nigeria or the Northern States Christian Elders Forum.

“Although I’m a member of both organisations, and a former chairman of the latter, I no longer hold an office in either organisation.  My comments were purely personal and neither organisation was aware prior to publication”.

The no-nonsense preacher, who is the President/Founder of Kaduna-based Old Time Revival Hour, added that the demand of N50m as compensation for the families of the abducted schoolgirls and other recommendations in the document that was reported by the media, were merely personal suggestions.

“I have no wish to cause distress to the girls and their families. These girls demand justice, and I intend to rally support for their cause. Ultimately this should never have been about me or my comments. It should be about the girls and their families. We must do everything we can to recover them, and once the government have done this, to provide the appropriate amount of compensation that they require”, the statement read.

The document released by Owojaiye, titled “Abomination! Abomination!! Christian girls abducted in Chibok, Borno State”, contained 180 names with 165 listed as Christians.

The document among other things, recommended a N50m compensation for each of the girls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on April 14, in addition to scholarships to study abroad.


  1. What kind of Madness is this? How can you come to the Public such a Statement and now you are reversing it by saying that is personal…This is the high level of Madness…This are people who add problem to the ones that are still on hand.It doesn’t matter to me wether you are a Muslim or Christian,we are all Nigerians and wether you like it not Nigeria Must restore her previous qualities such as Peace,Unity and Mutual understanding amongst one another…I heard so losse Nigerians talking about Christians Girls that were abducted,Hmm,people are funny.Do you think among the girls Muslims are not there? Please my fellow Nigerians try to understand that Boko Haram have their sponsorers within us,and those sponsorers were paid to bring about disunity in Nigeria,But God Almighty will not allow that and i urge each and every one of us to stand against any Non-Challant comment from any person,it doesn’t matter wether the Person is a Pastor or Imam (Mallam) because no one sees one’s heart..So please lets make use of our brain so that some Public Nuissance will not increase the problems we are having….Thank You *Sparko*
