A group of concerned Christians has asked the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, to stop shielding the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on his alleged complicity in the killings of Christians in the country.
The group in a statement in Abuja, accused CAN of not reacting to alleged attacks they suffered when they took a peaceful protest to RCCG’s headquarters in Lagos on Monday.
The group further accused the Christian body of being quick to absorb Adeboye of some wrongdoings, adding that CAN have been completely silent on the sufferings of Christians under President Muhammadu administration.

The group in a statement signed by May Ubeku, Convener of Impact Future Nigeria, said, it is “Very unfortunate that people protesting against the current state of heightened insecurity and uncertainty with regard to the Islamization of Nigeria, RUGA and general killings could rather be described as ‘secular’ (by CAN) as if they have no legitimate right to call out people complicit in the current sorry state of affairs.
“The nation at large is trouble today looking at the fact that survival and existence as humans are at stake. The lives of their children loved ones and those of their generations yet unborn are currently being threatened by the current Islamization threats and killings.
“This current circumstance has raised concerns and gotten everyone including State Governors, Traditional Rulers various sociopolitical groups including Ohaneze Ndigbo, Afenifere, PANDEF and other groups condemning the government’s poorer handling of various national tragedies. ”
“While Cardinal Okogie is asking Buhari to change Service Chiefs and even give up his position because of the failure to protect Nigerians, Adeboye is calling for the Service Chiefs to be retained supporting Miyetti Allah at a time when even General TY Danjuma was accusing the military of colluding with the herdsmen to kill Christians.
“Adeboye took side with Miyetti Allah against CAN, the Christian Elders Forum and the Catholic Church,” the group said.
Charles Oputa aka Charley Boy, Baba Fryo, Pastor Goodie Goodie, Eedris Aldukareem and students in solidarity support with the Christian groups attended the protest.
