CAN issues last warning over Boko Haram bombings

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor on Wednesday said Christians may be forced to order its members to react to bombings and shootings targeted at them by the Islamist terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

“The church leadership has hitherto put great restraint on the restive and aggrieved millions of Nigerians, but can no longer guarantee such cooperation if this trend of terror is not halted immediately,” Oritsejafor told journalists in the capital city of Abuja.

He warned that his latest comments represented the “final call” towards pushing government to take action.
Oritsejafor had previously hinted at the possibility of reprisals to Boko Haram’s attacks, the most notable being in January when he said that “Christians would work out means to defend ourselves against these senseless killings.”
