Heads To Roll As CAN Vows To Go After Pastors Involved In Human Trafficking

Published

According to a report by Vanguard, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Edo State, has vowed to go after pastors that pray for human traffickers, and sell anointing oil and handkerchief, warning that perpetrators will face the wrath of God if they fail to repent. 

The umbrella group for Christians also condemned what it described as the killings by herdsmen in Edo State and other parts of the country, admonishing government to establish cattle ranching, rather than cattle colonies.

Addressing journalists in Benin, the Edo State capital, state Chairman of CAN, Bishop Oriname Kure, who described human trafficking as a sin against God and man, said the activities of traffickers, which had led to deaths of thousands of youths, are worrisome and declared that any pastor involved in the act, either through prayers or directly, is an enemy of the church.

According to him, “the Bible is the spiritual force that binds us all as Christians. Anyone involved in human trafficking, while claiming to be a pastor, is lying.

“CAN is saying to such pastors, repent. God is against it, our culture is against it, our religion is against it and CAN condemns it in totality.

“We commend Governor Godwin Obaseki for his efforts so far in fighting the illicit trade and urge those involved to stop it or face the wrath of God.”

Air Force slammed Policemen

The incident which occurred at a yet to be identified venue showed some men of the Nigeria Air Force calling on officers of the Nigeria police to cease fire.

In the videos also, residents were seen running helter-skelter while soldiers used a megaphone to call for calm. “Stop shooting, the Air Force are here”, the soldiers could be heard screaming.

However, the policemen appeared reluctant in taking orders from the soldiers until one of them showed proof of his rank by pointing to the stars on his shoulder.

The soldier also warned that if they refuse to ceasefire, he would charge them and their headquarters for inciting violence.

The officer who spoke on behalf of the Air Force then commanded the policemen to move their van behind theirs so the Army would serve as a buffer between them and the crowd.
