The Christian Association of Nigerian,CAN, has condemned the bomb attack at the University of Maiduguri, Borno state, stressing that only people who are possessed can perpetrate such act.
Recall that Boko Haram suicide bombers had on Monday attacked a mosque in UNIMIAD killing a professor and several others.
Claiming responsibility for the attack, leader of the sect, Abubakar Shekau, in an audio message, said the mosque was being used for “ungodly” act.
In a statement personally signed by its President, Rev. Dr. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, the body wondered what crime the deceased worshippers committed.
The Christian body urged security agencies to go after the terrorists who have been dislodged from their strongholds but still attacking soft targets.
The statement reads, “The Christian Association of Nigeria condemns the wicked and criminal bombing of people worshipping in the mosques at the University of Maiduguri recently.
“What offence did these worshippers commit to warrant this? Only the demon possessed individuals can be behind this type of act.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria commiserates with the family of the victims of the terrorist attack and prays for the comfort of the Holy Spirit for them. The Association as well prays for quick recovery for those that were injured.
“We urge the Federal Government through the law enforcement agents not to relent in going after these evil men in our midst. They are already dislodged from Sambisa forest and are scattered all around to target public places and unsuspecting people to perform their heinous enterprise.
“We urge all Nigerians to be watchful and quickly report suspicious moves and individuals to the law enforcement agents. We would soon overcome completely terrorism in Nigeria in the name of Jesus.”
