Religious Leaders Call for Prayer After Deadly Attacks in Nigeria


The Christian Association of Nigeria has condemned the bomb attacks in Kano on Friday.

More than 100 people were killed in a number of bomb blasts at the city’s Central Mosque, and near the Emir of Kano’s palace.

The CAN President, Ayo Oritsejafor said in statement: “It is an act that must be denounced by all, Christians and Moslems for no God commissions the killing of a fellow being.”

Oritsejafor spoke at an interfaith meeting of Muslim and Christian leaders on Saturday. He called on Nigerians to pray against terrorism and work to defeat terror.

“We cannot continue to allow the terrorists to continue to intimidate us in our land because we have no other place to call our own, we must cooperate with relevant authorities in addition to being extra vigilant, to defeat this terror, they are human beings and can be defeated, but we have to be united,” he said, according to the Premium Times.
