'Avoid taking laws into your hands, instead pray for Nigeria', RCCG appeals
Members of the international headquarter of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been advised to pray, rather than retaliate over cases of religious intolerance.
In light of the recent killing of Eunice Olawale by suspected Muslim radicals, the international headquarters has released a statement, advising against retaliation, DailyPost reports.
In the press release, RCCG’s head of Media and Public Relations Department, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, urged members to pray for Nigeria.
"We are indeed in a sad mood in RCCG. As sweet as heaven is, death of our youths is not what we wish for. We shall not cease to pray that God will end bloodshed in Nigeria and all over the world.
We sympathise with the widower, our pastor, and their seven children. Our Mother-in-Israel, Pastor and Pastor of Region 10, paid a condolence visit to the family on Sunday,” he said.
In related news, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Federal Government to do something about the frequent cases of violence against Christians.
"Before the situation escalates into an unmanageable crisis, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, is calling on authorities at the states and federal levels to do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to justice.
These attacks on Christians and the authority’s inaction is becoming unbearable and may not be tolerated anymore. We pray that in His mercy, shall comfort and strengthen the families of all Nigerians affected in these unwarranted murders unleashed upon the nation by religious extremists,” CAN General Secretary, Rev. Musa Asake, said.
