The Redeemed Christian Church of God (Root of David Parish) in Dei Dei, a satellite community in Abuja has been razed down by hoodlums. To this end, the Christian Association of Nigeria (Youth Wing) has given the Federal Government and security agencies one-week ultimatum to identify and prosecute the hoodlums. Conducting journalists around the scene of the incident, the National President of YOWICAN, Daniel Kadzai said, “I want to express my disappointment in this government for the gross dereliction of its duty. The primary role of government is to provide security to its citizens, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity.
“But it seems the government has failed in this duty. I sincerely want to call on the government to take the issue of church burning, church demolition and attacks on Christians seriously. We do not want to reach a point where we might not be able to control our youths. We are therefore giving the government one-week ultimatum to apprehend the perpetrators of this latest attack and prosecute them accordingly. All Christian youths across the country would stage a peaceful protest if government continues to exhibit lackadaisical attitude towards the issue, while ignoring the sponsors of the attacks.”
