It was a day of prayers and protests yesterday over the killings in some parts of the country.
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) President Supo Ayokunle called for the protests as a wake-up call to the Federal Government that the bloodletting must stop.
However, there were no protests in the Southeast. The protests in Lagos, Ibadan, Ado-Ekiti, Akure, Kaduna, Port Harcourt, Makurdi, among others, were largely restricted to the Baptist Church. Rev Ayokunle is of the Nigerian Baptist Convention.
Pentecostal churches, which are mostly affiliated to the Pentocostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), did not join the protest.
In Kano, the state chapter of CAN chose prayers instead of a protest.
It declared that the killings were the handiwork of mercenaries and urged the Federal Government to treat the killers as terrorists. Read more
