Stop the senseless killings in Nigeria – Pope Francis tells Buhari

Catholic Pontiff, Pope Francis, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to find ways to stop the killing of Nigerians across the country.

Lamenting what he described as the senseless killings of Nigerians by suspected jihadists, the Pope called on the Federal Government to guarantee the safety of all citizens.

The Holy Father expressed his sentiments of prayerful solidarity with Nigerians over last weekend’s killing of over 40 people by armed religious militia in Southern Kaduna during his usual Wednesday General Audience at the Vatican City.

He said it was not only in Southern Kaduna that people were being massacred, stressing that everywhere in the country, Nigerians are being killed.

Stop the senseless killings in Nigeria – Pope Francis tells Buhari

“I learnt with pain the news of the armed attacks that took place last Sunday against the villages of Madamai Abun, in northern Nigeria.

“I pray for those who have died, for those who have been injured and for the entire Nigerian population. I hope that the safety of all citizens in the country will always be guaranteed,” the Pope added.

He urged the Federal Government to provide adequate security for Nigerians in every part of the country.

Northern Nigeria has endured several years of violence, with herders and farmers competing for natural resources while sporadic violence by heavily armed bandits often lead to endless reprisals between communities.

RCCG Member Gunned Down In Front Of Church

There was tension at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Living Word Parish, Basin Road, Ilorin, Kwara, when Sina Babarinde, a member of the church, was gunned down.

Babarinde was said to have stepped out of the church to receive a call when his assailants rained bullets on him.

The incident, it was gathered, happened during the 7am service of the parish.

The motive of the killing was not clear as at press time.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Okasanmi Ajayi, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust on Monday night, said investigation was ongoing to arrest the perpetrators.

“He was called on phone during the service as he walked out of the church to receive the call. The sound of gun shots rend the air, which drew the attention of the congregation,” Okasanmi said.

“As at the time the congregation got out of the church to see what was happening, it was discovered that the estate agent was already in the pool of his blood.

“The shells of the bullet used in killing the deceased have been recovered and the corpse has been deposited at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for postmortem.

“People should not entertain any fear as the Police and other security agencies are working towards unraveling the situation surrounding the incident.”

Focus On Missionary Work, Stop Abusing Gods Grace – Primate Ayodele Rebukes Bakare

The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, on Saturday rebuked Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church over his comment on running for president in 2023.

Primate Ayodele, who frowned at the remark, said Pastor Bakare should face his missionary work and stop mismanaging the grace of God upon his life.

Bakare had said that he will contest for the position if God and Nigerians ask him to.

Speaking at the State House after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Bakare described himself as a nation builder.

However, Ayodele noted that Bakare cannot win an election in his church not to talk of winning an election in Nigeria.

In a statement by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, the clergyman advised him to spend his money on the less privileged in his church rather than waste it on something that has no reward from God.

‘’Tunde Bakare is mismanaging the grace of God upon his life and ministry. The dream of becoming Nigeria’s president is not realistic for him, he can’t even win an election in his church not to talk of Nigeria.

‘’If he has money, he should use it to help the less privileged in his church instead of going about to waste his time for nothing.

‘’Tunde Bakare should relax, forget the dream of becoming Nigeria’s president and face his missionary work that God sent him to do. He should preach the gospel, win more souls for Christ.,” he said.

Bakare had in July launched a movement he called ‘Nigeria For Nigeria’. This was a movement he described as a means to take back Nigeria from the hands of those in power.

But, Primate Ayodele had described the movement as a means to put Nigerians in bondage and that it is another agenda for Tunde Bakare’s political ambition.
