Gunmen, believed to be members of the extremist Boko Haram sect, on Tuesday evening shot dead the Borno Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
gunThe National President of CAN, Ayo Oritsejafor, confirmed the cleric’s killing.Faye Pama Musa was killed inside his Maiduguri residence less than an hour after President Goodluck Jonathan declared a State of Emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.

Kenny Asaka, the spokesperson to Mr. Oritsejafor, in a brief statement described the killing as “sad.”

Mr. Jonathan had before the incident slammed a state of emergency on Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States, saying it had become necessary for the Government to take extraordinary measures to restore normalcy.

“After wide consultations, and in exercise of the powers conferred on me by the provisions of Section 305, sub-section 1 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended, I hereby declare a State of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states,” he said.

  1. D killind is too much, wish dis useless boko haram sec will just let d christians leave in peace, they should really face federal gov or d politician way dey chop money and leave d innocent pple way nothing concern

  2. This is the right step in the right direction, from our president. Lets see how our security agents can haddle the issue on groung. Congrat Mr president, for finally standing up to your responsiblility.

  3. I think d politics are d pple mobilaising this bokoharam, coz i know that nothing iz hiden under d sun.Be very carefull nt 2 fall into d trap u set for som1,til then u wil no hw painfull wickednez is! My God wil shorly exporse those bad men in our nation.

  4. Issue of boko haram is just like the economy of Nigeria. Each time we shout happy new year and expect things to be better, it get worse than before. Each time boko haram is threatened , they kill more than before. The best thing is to desert the the affect areas for them, and when they are alone, they will stop.

  5. GEJ is indeed weak what sort of state of emergency is this . Why not send young vibrant xtain army officers to govern the three states so as to teach them a lesson they will never forget . Bastards
