Allow Kumuyi to hold crusade – CAN begs IPOB, faults FG

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has appealed to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to allow the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, hold his crusade in Abia State.

According to PUNCH, the appeal was made by the spokesperson of CAN, Adebayo Oladeji, during an interview.

The CAN spokesperson said Kumuyi’s coming to the state would be a blessing to the people of the state, adding that added that bloodshed and other forms of insecurity in the state and other South East require God’s intervention.

IPOB yesterday released a statement advising Kumuyi to cancel the planned six-day crusade scheduled to hold from May 24, 2022 to May 29 in Aba, Abia State due to security concerns in the South-East region.

The statement partly reads; “Let him and the organisers of the crusade make sure that nothing happens. The security of this region is not good because of political and criminal activities. We, therefore, advise him to stop this crusade for security reasons.

“IPOB will not allow anyone to die because of this crusade scheduled to hold in Aba. The probability of criminals operating as unknown gunmen infiltrating the crusade is high and they will blame it on IPOB.

“We ask him to pray for an end to the insecurity in Biafra land if he can. We charge Christians and men of God in Biafra land to engage God in fervent prayers to expose all those behind the insecurity in our land.

“Kumuyi should also pray against wicked leaders and saboteurs in Biafra land and Nigeria. They are the real problems of the people. Let him use the opportunity to pray against the powers holding people captive in Nigeria in his church in Lagos,” the statement said.

Adebayo Oladeji said, “It is unfortunate that we have killings going on in the South East. If the political will is there, I believe the killings in the region would have ended.

“We have a situation where you have IPOB declaring sit-at-home and despite the assurance by the government, people will decide to listen to IPOB. Is that what Nigeria should be? This is the situation we find ourselves.

 “If IPOB issued such a statement, it is just a reflection of what we are going through in the country. This situation is a precarious one. What CAN will say is that our politicians are in the rat race again. We should open our eyes and vote for people who can protect us.

“There’s nothing we can do than to appeal to them (IPOB). We want IPOB to know that his coming to that part of the country is going to be a blessing and bring victory to the people of the state and the region at large,” he said.

IPOB which is a nationalist separatist group in Nigeria that aims to restore the Republic of Biafra has been accused of been the major causes of insecurity in the South-East region of the country.

Its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is currently in government’s custody over terrorism charges. The group has been proscribed by the government but its several atrocities in the region remain unchecked.
