The Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has condemned the silence of political leaders in the country on the killing of Deborah Samuel in Sokoto over alleged blasphemy.
The association said those who have found it difficult among the politicians to lend their voices against the murder of Deborah should forget their votes in 2023.
“Any politician who failed to mourn with the nation especially the Christians in this sorrowful time should forget our votes in 2023,” Belusochukwu Enwere, Chairman of YOWICAN said in a statement on Sunday.
“We will mobilize Christian youths across the nooks and crannies of the country to ensure that such persons are stopped because he or she will be a misrepresentation of the nation. Nigeria is a secular state not a religious nation.”
He lamented that after killing Deborah, the miscreants continued to destroy peoples properties, burning of church facilities and going from house to house intimidating peaceful Christians.
Enwere called on the security agencies to do the needful before this becomes a religious war.
“We call on all Christian youths to continue to be peaceful and do not take laws in their hands. God must surely fight to avenge the killing of Deborah. Her death will unearth evil agenda of the wicked ones in Nigeria.”
