SAHARANEWS – Hundreds of Christians have stormed the streets of Akwa Ibom state for a peaceful protest against the incessant killings of mostly especially Christians, across the country.
The Christians, led by their spiritual leaders expressed their disgust over the many lives lost to attacks by suspected herdsmen across the country.
Igbere TV gathered that the protest was triggered days after Boko Haram executes the Chairman of CAN in Michika Local Government, Adamawa State, Pastor Lawan Andimi, who was abducted by the insurgents on January 3 and subsequently killed despite being offered a N50m ransom.
Some of the protesters displayed a placard with “Mr President Stop These Killings Please” written on them.
The Christians lamented the poor handling of the situation by the government and called on leaders especially at the centre to do their best to protect the people.
President Buhari had said on Tuesday, January 28, that he was surprised about the growing insecurity but that his administration would go ‘harder’ on bandits.
