CAN demands justice over Apostle Suleiman attack

2023: CAN to hold national prayer Nov 4
Archbishop Daniel Okoh

The Christian Association of Nigeria has demanded an investigation into the assassination attempt on Omega Fire Ministries International General Overseer, Apostle Johnson Suleiman.

According to The Punch, CAN president, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, gave the recommendation in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Okoh described the incident which claimed the life of Suleiman’s adjutant as a result of the faulty security system of the country.

The cleric in the statement demands the security problem to be fixed with immediate effect, stating that evildoers are on the toll of causing chaos in not only Edo state but the country at large.

He further expressed sympathy, speaking on behalf of the national leadership of CAN, with the Omega Fire Ministries International and the relatives of those who lost their families in the unfortunate incident.

Okoh urged everyone to put all hands on deck, pleading to the government to uncover the identities of partakers of the wicked act and declare justice.

He said, “We urge the Federal Government and the security agencies to see the incident for what it is, a sign of the nation’s wobbling security system, and act quickly to address the situation.

In the same vein, in view of the US Embassy’s warning of a possible terror attack by bandits in Abuja, CAN appealed to the security operatives to wake up to the challenges of securing people’s lives and property to avoid the consequences of a resort to self-help.

“We must do whatever it takes to stop those plotting to eliminate innocent citizens anywhere in the country, by brutal means, from achieving their ignoble objectives. They must not be allowed to continue their wickedness.

“While CAN appeals to Churches and by extension all Nigerians to be vigilant, and alert security agencies of any suspicious movements in their vicinities, we will continue to pray for lasting peace and security in our country in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
