Primate says Christians will soon start fighting insurgency

Primate Ayodele Olabayo said that the inability of the Government to protect its citizens will soon make Christians to start fighting Boko Haram by themselves.

Archbishop Ayodele Olabayo has warned the Nigerian Government that Christians will soon be forced to fight back at Boko Haram militants by themselves if the relevant authorities do not stop the incessant attacks.

The primate said this during an interview with City People Magazine where he also called on President Goodluck Jonathan to get a grip of the country and stop the attacks on Christians and others in the northern part of the country.

“All they are after and working towards is that they don’t want elections to take place there. And all these evil people are not being checked. Worst things are happening. People are not talking. Churches are being burnt; nothing is being done about it. It is not that we Christians can’t fight back or retaliate. It’s because we fear the Lord. It will get to a stage now where we would not agree any longer. Enough is enough,” primate Ayodele Olabayo said in the interview.

Ayodele Olabayo said the country is suffering because the government did not yield to his warnings of the past. “Those in government don’t even think of the poor people any longer. To start with, people are suffering, people are dying. Early this year, I spoke about the security problems that something needed to be done they didn’t take this serious,” the leader of the Yahweh Church said.
