BREAKING: CAN Suspends Protest Against Killings 24 Hours After Meeting Buhari

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has postponed until further notice its planned PEACEFUL PROTEST MARCH slated for 11 July, 2018 due to some circumstances it said “is beyond its control”.

This was made known in a statement signed by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, the Special Assistant on Media & Communications to the President of CAN, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle.

However, the 3-Day Prayer and Fasting will still hold as scheduled for July 9-11, 2018 in all churches and state chapters of CAN.

The church/denominational leaders will, however, still come to the National Christian Centre together with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of CAN on the 11th of July at 10am to cry to God for our land.

CAN had declared July 9-11, 2018 as NATIONAL DAYS OF PRAYERS AND FASTING AGAINST UNWARRANTED KILLINGS IN THE LAND and called on all well-meaning Nigerians, both within and outside the country, to join Christians on July 11, 2018 for a PEACEFUL PROTEST AGAINST THE KILLINGS.

CAN had hinged its decision on willful and persistent killings of fellow citizens in general and Christians in particular nationwide, and mostly in Plateau and Benue where mass burial has become the norm without any positive response from the country’s security agencies.

CAN had expressed gross concern and grave disappointment over the continuous killings despite al clarion calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to re-organise his security team by replacing all the security chiefs.
