The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately end the ceaseless killings particularly of Christians in the northern part of the country.

Also, the Primate of the African Church, His eminence Dr. Emmanuel Udofia, has called on President Buhari to stop the killings in the country.

Udofia said this on Thursday at a press conference heralding the 2nd biennial conference of the church held at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, Imepe, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

The PFN, Vice-President (South-South), Bishop Simeon Okah, said if the Federal Government did not stop the killings by the killer herdsmen in the next one month, the PFN would organise a massive protest that would hold the country to a standstill.

Okah, who spoke at a press conference on Thursday at Enerhen in Effurun, Delta State, challenged Buhari to bring his wealth of experience as a former general and military leader to bear by tackling the unwarranted killings particularly in the North-Central geopolitical zone.

The PFN Vice-President, who doubled as the presiding Bishop of Flock of Christ Mission, also called for the immediate resignation or sacking of all serving military chiefs in the country including the Director General of the Department of State Services; the Inspector-General of Police and other sister agencies for failing to nip the killings in the bud.

While commending the American President, Donald Trump, for advising President Buhari to tackle the killing of Christians, Okah alleged that what the killer herdsmen and their sponsors were after in the North was to kill anyone who mentions the name of Jesus.

“While we feel so concerned is that the people in the Middle-Belt are not animals or chickens that should be murdered. The issue is not just that they are Christians, but they are human beings. We expect that President Buhari will take action because these people who are being slaughtered all voted for him in 2015.

Udofia noted that the country was sitting on the keg of gun powder and the President was not doing enough to check the country’s slide into anarchy.
