Evangelical Church Winning All ECWA has described the recent incident that occurred at Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau state, where several members of a Muslim group were killed as being “heartless”.
It was disclosed in a statement signed by ECWA president, Dr. Stephen Panya Baba.
He urged the security agencies to intensify their effort in curbing this criminal activity, adding that anyone found guilty should face the fall wrath of the rule.
The Church said, “It is very sad and most unfortunate that killings have persisted, in spite of the commendable initial response and effort of the Plateau State Governor, in mobilizing the various security arms, to stem the tide of the unrest and killings.”
Reacting to the massacre, the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, condemned the attack and also called on the security personnel to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.
On their part, Plateau state Governor, Simon Lalong and the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN also express their displeasure on the incident and called for the arrest of the perpetrators.
According to the officials in State, about 20 suspects have been arrested relating to the incident.
Still on the part of the ECWA president, he said, this is coming few months when the storm in the killings of people in Irigwe land Bassa LGA by alleged herdsmen is yet to die down.
ECWA, as a major Church denomination in Nigeria and beyond, does not subscribe to wastage of human lives and property in line with clear Biblical injunctions against such. We believe in the sanctity of human life, that the life of every human being, no matter one’s tribe, ethnicity, or religion is sacred because every human being is created in the image of God.
We call on all to avoid taking laws into their hands and to report any suspicious person (s) to law enforcement authorities for appropriate response and necessary action.
On behalf of Evangelical Church Winning All ECWA worldwide, we pray for comfort for the families whose members were so gruesomely murdered and for speedy and total healing for those injured. We call on the government to also take responsibility for the injured in this latest attack that is in the hospitals.
Families and religious bodies must continue to preach and pursue peace and tolerance in the face of these turbulent times. Those who truly know God and are his children would pursue peace at all cost; for blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9
