Islamic militant group, ISIS have been killing Christians in various areas where they control over the past few months. In response to these attacks on Christians, Syrian Christians have started a revenge attack as they have been killing ISIS militants they lay there hands on.

Based on the Christian teaching, INFORMATION NIGERIAN used its platform to seek the opinion of Nigerians as to whether or not it is right/biblical for Christians to launch a counter/revenge attack on ISIS militants for killing Christians.

We’ve put together what Nigerians have to say on this topic; here is what they said:

One reader, Elaigwu Ngbede Justin subtly supported the revenge action by Christians, saying; “Jehovah supported the Israelite against their enemies. We should not watch Islam eliminate Christianity from the world”. In response to this reaction, another reader of INFORMATION NIGERIA said “Mr Christian Fighter, Please in your own interest and God’s sake, don’t avenge for God oooo… its written “Vengeance is mine, says the Lord of Host”. We serve a Living God who can fight his own battles and not some dead gods. The Battle is the Lords and not yours. If he could save the Israelite from the Egyptians without coming down to fight, he’s still alive to do the same ooo. Don’t help God. He’s more than Able”.

In supporting a revenge action against ISIS, another reader, Felix Otuya suggested that at this time biblical principles should be dropped, he said; “I think at this point bible principles should be kept aside. Christians should stand up and defend themselves before they are wiped out by these evil forces”. In supporting what Felix said, another reader said “stop supporting the killing of Christian and say God will fight, is it not somebody God will use to fight for us. Those commenting that it is not good the way Christians are fighting back don’t even know the bible”.

A more direct and frontal reader said “Christians should stop being stupid and start eliminating the Muslim. If you were going out for preachin and you were killed, we know you died for christ but if you were in your home and someone came to kill you and your family and you did nothing then you are stupid. Why God rejected Saul was simple – God told him kill all the Philistines but he disobeyed. and now the philistines are thesame arabs, terrorist and Muslims”.

X’zel Emmanuel, was more conservative in his comment as he said “If they should keep on doing this there is no difference between them and the ISIS group. Christians are meant to face persecution. If our Lord Jesus faced it, who are we not? I tell you something, God still loves those ISIS group because we are still in the time of grace. Remember one of the laws in the ten commandment “Thou shall not kill”. Another reader, Nebechi Okerulu expressed thesame idea as Emmanuel saying “Vengeance is still for God. So for any Christian to do that ,they are just like ISIS”.

Another reader, Uzoegbo Anthony supported revenging as he said “if u see any, kill am before he kills you…those Muslims are animals”. Emeka Kingsley used his comment to appeal to those whose comment would leave all men blind since an eye for an eye is what they are advocating for as he said “It is very wrong, because you can’t fight for God. Now there is no difference between you and them now. You just sin against God, in His sight you are a murderer. Please repent now”

Florence Faleye also appealed saying “Please and pleaseeeeee don’t let the devilsh people push us from God, our God is able to fight the battle and He will fight for us stop this is barbaric”.

    It’s unbiblical to avenge for GOD but the islamists had capitalise on this and killed many innocent Christians.On personal note i suggest its time to attack the Philistines,Egyptians,Babylonians and Ishmaelites that are making the world a horrible place to live

    Christians should not wait solely on God. They need to fight and defend themselves from the hands of those evil people (ISIS). God will not come down to fight for us, we should fight for ourselves. Do we wait for them to kill all the christians before we shine our eyes? No guys, no. God will only give us the wisdom, understanding and strenght to fight our enemies, he won’t come down to do that for you. let’s not say because we’re christians and children of God so we’ll not fight and allow them to kill us all, impossible. We have to defend ourselves, period.

‘We counted 15 dead bodies’ – DJ Switch breaks silence on Lekki shooting (video)

'We counted 15 dead bodies' – DJ Switch breaks her silence on Lekki shooting (video)

 

Popular Nigerian DJ, Switch, has opened up on what happened in Lekki on Tuesday night.

Known as Obianuju Catherine Udeh, Switch said she counted 15 dead bodies during the shoot-out.

 

 

 

In a video she posted on her Instagram page, Switch asked the authorities not to insult the intelligence of Nigerians when giving their own account of what happened on that day.

According to her, the military aimed at endsars protesters as they fired gunshots. She also said that SARS officers came in after the military had left and also attacked them.

According to Switch she and others present counted over 15 bodies.

‘‘I just want to clear a few things that I have been seeing online. To our leaders, I urge you please do not minimize the suffering of families. Do not insult the grief of Nigerians, do not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Do not insult the pains the families are facing.

People were falling left and right. Yes there were soldiers there. Another part that people are not talking about is that the police also came. The SARS people we are talking about, they also came, some maybe 40-45 minutes after the soldiers left.

We were teargassed. The teargass was like Cotonou pepper mixed with acid. We were running. We would run and we would come back and the only thing we fought with was our flags. We would sit on the floor and we would raise or hands up, raising our flags and singing the national anthem. That was all we had.

They put off the lights. Even if there was no power in that axis, there was always light at the tollgate. There was no lights. The street lights were off. It was pitch black.” she said

Speaking further, she said

”A boy jumped on me and was shouting cover her, cover her. I didn’t even understand why he did that. They shot that boy on my back. I fell and while the soldiers were picking their shells, we were running around and picking their shells too because we wanted proof.”

She showed photos of bullet shells picked from the ground. She showed the one that was fired close to her ears and the one that was removed from someone’s lap.

The military, they were there on Nigerian soil, killing Nigerian citizens. The police and their SARS like people came doing the same thing, aiming and shooting. They were pointing the gun at us and shooting live bullets. Who takes live bullets to a protest?

To our leaders, I urge you to please not insult the intelligence of Nigerians and the families.”

DJ Switch expressed regrets that she and others allowed the military to take the bodies of the deceased persons.

”Something I think of in hindsight I wish we hadn’t done it but we carried dead bodies and dropped at the feet of the soldiers so that they could see what they did to us. When I asked their unit commander why are you killing us? I wish we didn’t do that because they ended up throwing the bodies in their van. This was up until the next morning.” she said

She dissociated herself from the social media accounts claiming she said 78 persons died. She said she and others counted 15 dead bodies.

”I never said 78 people died. What I do know is that when I was doing the live, 7 people had died. When my phone died, we had counted about 15 people. I don’t know if it was more than that. We had a lot of people stray bullet wound, gunshot wounds, and all that.

People did die. It wasn’t photoshopped. I must be a tech genius to photoshop a live feed.” she said

She dismissed reports that her cousin died in the incident.

Thanking everyone for their prayers and support, DJ Switch said

”We must continue to move. We must continue. If we stop I fear it will probably be the next 60 years before we talk about this again. We must continue peacefully. I condemn any sort of violence. I condemn the burning of buses and peoples livelihood. ”

If End SARS protest doesn’t work then it might be over for Nigerian youths – Burna Boy

If End SARS protest doesn’t work then it might be over for Nigerian youths – Burna Boy

Popular music entertainer, Burna Boy has stated that if the recent end SARS protest by Nigerian youths doesn’t yield any positive result, then the future holds nothing for the teeming youths in the country.

The ‘On the low’ crooner stated this in an interview with foreign media, Sky News.

The interview comes two weeks after protests began, sparked by a video showing a man being beaten, apparently by police officers from SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad).

Burna Boy, who spoke to Sky News from London, said: “It is shocking when you see it happen in that place, in such a place, that was the landmark of everything.

The Lekki Toll Gate, that was the most peaceful place to protest, the most peaceful venue in the whole country and then that is the place where [the shootings] happen. It is not something that you can just wrap your head around.”

The best-selling Afrobeats artist, who has mixed rap, funk and dancehall influences on international hits like On The Low and Ye, said nationwide protests against SARS have changed the nature of politics in his homeland.

This is the most important moment in Nigeria’s history… that is what we are witnessing right now because if nothing changes after this, if this doesn’t work, then it is over.”

When asked what he meant by this, he replied: “Look at what is going on right now: the youth have come together, like something unexplainable (sic), something that no one man could have possibly organised or led, the youth of the largest black nation in the world came together, said enough is enough and this was triggered by police brutality.

“It’s not like it was triggered by all the other things that it should have been triggered by all these years.”
