Arms Deal: Oritsejafor Was Set Up – CAN

Published

on

The South West chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has blamed the criticism faced by Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over the use of his private jet for the procurement of arms for the country, on the Federal Government.

In a communiqué signed by the association’s chairman, Archbishop Magnus Adeyemi Atilade in Osogbo, Osun State, CAN opined that the National Security Adviser, and Defence Minister should be questioned to explain what they knew about the deal, which has further strained relationship between Nigeria and South Africa after the seizure of $9.3milion meant for the procurement of arms by the South African Government.

The Christian body said from the look of things, Oritsejafor could have been set up, as his jet, which was hired for the deal was not in his control when it was leased to whoever took it to South Africa.

“Dasuki and Gwarzo should be questioned and they should provide urgent answers to this national embarrassment to Nigerians,” CAN noted.

    I believed that those who are blaming or accusing Pastor Ayo on the $9.3 millions does not. Know what they are talking including some of clergys.Pastor Ayo gave his jet to an airline operators on lease and operators rented to some customer who now used it to carry the money in question.Did pastor Ayo knew about this transactions? infertically no because is no longer his business but the airline operations.so please leave that man alone for God’s sake.

    CAN is an acronym for criminal organisation of nigeria. They are made up of crooks called pastors. CAN under okogie was disciplined but when crook took over they destroyed it. Ayo is an arms dealer masquerading as a pastor. His co accomplices are trying to cover him up. I have been praying for God to expose him and am glad he did. He is a crook and must resign, no matter the image laundry campaign.

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
