SEGUN BABATUNDE, BAUCHI
The Spiritual Father and Chairman, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide (CSMC) Ayo Ni O, Most Rev (Prophet) Samuel Adefila Abidoye, says Nigerians are fed up with empty threats by government at various levels to fish out and deal with bandits and terrorists in the country.
Abidoye said rather, Nigerians are anxiously waiting to see decisive actions taken by government towards stamping out their menace.
The CSMC Spiritual Father in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday, condemned Sunday’s attack on worshippers of Owo Catholic Church, where scores were killed while several others sustained various degrees of injuries.
Prophet Abidoye declared, “Nigerians are tired of reading statements from the Presidency and State Governments on the frequent gruesome killings by bandits across the country. Rather, this is the time for government to take a decisive action towards eliminating these terrorists from Nigeria.”
He described the latest bloodbath in Owo as one too many, ungodly and capable of threatening the foundation and existence of Nigeria, adding that the perpetrators can best be described as evil men who have sinned against God and should be ready to face the wrath of the Lord.
While expressing concern on the spate of insecurity across the country, the cleric insisted that the Federal Government had failed in its efforts to secure the country, wondering when it became a crime to go to church to worship.
He stated, “Government at all levels should braze up and fight this menace headlong ahead of the general elections in order to give room for good participation by the electorate and also give room for free and credible election next year.
“Members of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide, AYO NI O, are deeply saddened by the Sunday shooting and bombing at the Church and I pray for the repose of those who lost their lives, just as I commiserate with the government and people of Ondo State, the Catholic community and all that are affected by this dastardly act.”
The Spiritual Father called on Government at all levels as well as agencies concerned to find a meaningful solution to this heinous killings before the whole society is wiped out, adding that they should ensure that such incident no longer happen in any part of the country.
The Cleric declared, “Those who are behind this dastardly act must be fished out and brought to book immefiately.”
