Nigeria: CAN Condemns Christian Bombers, Calls Bombing Attempt Sign Of End Times

(Premium Times) – The North-east zonal chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Shuaibu Byal, has condemned Sunday’s attempt by members of the Church of Christ in Nigeria, COCIN, Bauchi, to bomb their own church, describing the incident as a “sign of end times.”

Quoting the book of Mathew, Chapter 24, of the Holy Bible, which talks about the ‘destruction of the temple and signs before the end’, Mr. Byal, who is also the pastor in charge of Evangelical Church of West Africa, ECWA II Bauchi, says Christians should always preach the gospel of truth and peace.

“This incident is the manifestation of what Jesus Christ was referring to in Mathew 24 as signs of the end times. Christians should preach the truth, and not be sheep in wolves clothing” Mr. Byal said

The CAN leader, who confirmed that internal administrative problem among the church members led the suspects to attempt the dastardly act, advised faithful to learn from this incident an ensure that issues that arise within the church are settled amicably without recourse to violence.

Mr. Byal also told Premium Times CAN was in touch with security agencies on the matter and that the police had assured it “they are on top of the matter.”

He therefore advised the security agencies to ensure equity to all parties not just in prosecuting the suspects but ensuring that sanity returns to the Church concerned.

    the question is – are they members of the church and if they are, what day do they joined the church? you will discover that they are sponsored to tarnish the image of christianity. it has never happened anywhere in the world and Nigeria can never be the first to experience christian bombing place of worship.the investigation will tell us the truth.

      ( ….I have been reading all the ourivas statements. He (Alamieyeseigha) said he didn’t escape, if you belief in tradition there is what we call Egbe’, carrier or Ofe’, it could be either of those that brought him to Bayelsa, I don’t know about all these things….it would require the intervention of Babalawos…the Olorisas (traditional worshippers) the Hindus and Budhists to unravel the mystery….” On my part, I think, this dude (Alams) should be crowned the most foolish member of the black race. Whilst accused of crime-1, he commits crime-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, z, etc (in the face of the law and media) and in fact is in Naija illegaly. The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. Government of Nigeria over to you.
