The Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Sunday, February 2, said the country does not need any more bloodshed. The president of the association, Reverend Samson Ayokunle, said that the Federal Government needs to protect its citizens and put an end to the insecurity and bloodshed in Nigeria. Ayokunle while speaking at the end of a three-day special prayer and fasting for Nigeria, said the FG must up its game in securing lives and property of Nigerians. Stating that the efforts of the Nigerian government are currently not enough, Ayokunle said public office holders cannot continue to play politics with Nigeria’s security.

Ayokunle said: “They said they are trying but their best is not the best; daily bloodshed is happening and we cannot be playing politics with the lives of men and women, they have the right to live and when they are dying, we cannot keep quiet.” “We don’t want bloodshed in Nigeria again,” Ayokunle said.

According to Auokunle, there is no reason why a victim will stay in the hands of kidnappers for days with rescue from the government.

“We want to urge the security chiefs, in this day of technology; there is no reason why anybody will be with kidnappers for more than three days because through technology that God has given us in the world today, we can monitor anyone anywhere by satellite and through other means,” he said. He further called all Nigerian politicians to quit playing politics with the lives of people.

“The essence of government is to rise up to such nonsense and bring an end to it; Nigerians are very tired, if anybody is telling the government that they are doing their best, that person is not telling the truth.” “He is playing politics with human life and if politicians are playing politics, we in the church cannot play politics, the moment we don’t see bloodshed again, we will begin to commend you,” he said.
