A former presidential aide and human rights activist, Reno Omokri has called on churches across the nation to arm themselves with the right weapons in self defence.
Omokri’s call is coming on the heels of a terrorists attack on the St. Moses Catholic Church in Kaduna, and other atacks by terrorists in recent times.
Kaduna State Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday confirmed an attack on two churches in Rubu village under Kajuru local government area.
Aruwan confirmed that bandits
killed three worshippers and kidnapped several locals during the attack.
The assailants also attacked locals at Ungwan Turawa and Ungwan Makama within the same area, the commissioner noted.
This is happening barely 48 hours after victims of St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, who were massacred by terrorists on June 5, were given a mass funeral.
Sunday’s attack victims include; The ward head of Ungwan Fada, Peter Madaki, a resident identified as Elisha Ezekiel, and Ali Zamani the Youth leader of Rubu village.
Reacting, Omokri said on Twitter; “I strongly condemn the killing of worshippers at the St Moses Catholic Church, Robuh, Kaduna.
“This renewed assault on Christians, and especially the Catholic Church must not stand. Churches must arm themselves in self defence, because the FG either will not or cannot defend them.”
