They were led by the Local Government CAN Coordinator, Rev David Faruna, and his Assistant , Rev Philip U Utaji who condemned the brutal killing of Christians in the country , describing it as barbaric and unacceptable.
They called on the APC led Government to sit up to her responsibility in providing adequate security to all the citizens irrespective of religion and tribe.
In his response, the traditional ruler (Onu Ife )called on all Christians to rise up and cry to God in prayers since the government of the day has failed to provide adequate security for the citizens.
“Government is not doing anything to stop the killings and the news keeps coming and the rate of the killings continues increasing day by day. Only prayers can save us,” he said.
