Lawan Andimi: MURIC condemns killing of CAN Chairman in Adamawa

An Islamic group, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has condemned the murder of Lawan Andimi, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika local government area of Adamawa, describing it as horrendous, ungodly and barbaric.

Lawan-Andimi

We are at a loss for words. This killing is horrendous, ungodly and barbaric.

“We condemn it in the strongest terms possible. We reiterate our earlier declaration that Boko Haram is not an Islamic group, rather it is a group of misled zealots.

“Any group that kills at will and sheds the blood of innocent people cannot represent Islam,” he said.

“We call on all Nigerians regardless of religious background to unite against Boko Haram. We must stand up together to fight the evil in our midst,” he said.

“We charge the Nigerian military to leave no stone unturned in its efforts to eliminate the insurgents.

“Our hearts are heavy as we remember the bereaved family. But we are assured in the global reach of God’s divine umbrella.

“Only Him can console them. Only Him can heal. We pray that the Almighty God will give succour to members of the deceased’s family, his friends and associates,” he said.

He commiserated with the leadership of CAN in particular and the Nigerian Christian community in general.

He added that it was only patience and statesmanship that had kept Nigeria going in times like this.

“We are all losing our loved and respected clerics, friends and family members.

“We are all victims. Let us console ourselves and strengthen our position with prayers instead of resorting to blame game,” he said.
