Blasphemy: CAN demands justice for late Deborah Samuel
Reverend Samson Ayokunle, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said on Sunday that the Christian body will not rest until Deborah Samuel’s murder is adequately addressed.
According to him, the body is doing everything possible to ensure that the perpetrators of the heinous crime are brought to justice.
This was stated by the CAN president during a protest held on Sunday at the Oritamefa Baptist Church in Total Garden, Ibadan.
According to him, the protest was held in response to the recent murder of Deborah and the fact that the perpetrators have yet to be apprehended, as well as to put an end to the killings of Christians in the county.
Oyekunle said they have gathered to unanimously say no to jungle justice, killing of the innocent, as if Nigeria is a banana republic, adding “We are saying that Nigeria is a law-guided society, and for every sin, whether religion or no religion, the constitution of Nigeria is supreme.”
He said the constitution must be brought to bear upon every conduct of all Nigeria, adding that, no religion, henceforth, should be allowed to take laws into their hands, and there must be justice for the people whose lives had been unduly terminated and their dreams perished.
