Defend yourselves - Apostle Suleman tells Southern Kaduna

Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries has reacted to the recent Southern Kaduna Killings by urging those affected to toe the line of peace.

Tweeting, Apostle Suleman stated that if they feel that their life is on the line, they should defend themselves because the Bible encourages such.

The clergyman also reminded them that the constitution supports self-defence.

"My brethren in Southern Kaduna, pls dont go after in peace. But when your life is on the line, defend it. The bible encourages us to fight for our wives, daughters, sons and houses (Nehemiah 4.14). Besides, self-defence is enshrined in the constitution", he tweeted.

Meanwhile, he President of the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle, has called on the Federal Government to put a stop to the killings in Southern Kaduna.

“Despite assurances from both the Federal and Kaduna State governments, the demons of murder are yet to sheathe their swords against Southern Kaduna communities and that the government appears not to be sincere in walking the talk”, he said.

He added: “There is urgent need by government and the security forces to walk their talk and combat the raging insecurity squarely across Kaduna state and other parts of the country".
