CAN Offers Prayers, Demands Action After Attacks

A recent surge in suicide bombings, including a horrific attack on June 29th in Gwoza, Borno state, has shaken Nigerians and prompted strong condemnation from religious leaders.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) expressed deep concern over the “senseless acts of violence” that claimed at least 18 lives and injured many others. CAN President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, called the attack a stark reminder of the threat terrorism poses and urged collective action to defeat it.

Archbishop Okoh commended ongoing efforts by security agencies and stressed the need for continued vigilance, particularly in areas prone to attacks. He emphasised the importance of reinforcing security measures to protect civilians, places of worship and large gatherings.

In addition to security measures, CAN emphasised the need for unity. Archbishop Okoh called on religious leaders and all Nigerians to stand against terrorism and violence, promoting peace, love, and harmony. He offered prayers for the bereaved families and for an end to the violence plaguing the nation.

CAN’s stance also reflects the growing anxiety in Nigeria and the vital role religious leaders can play in fostering unity and resilience in the face of violence.
