In a statement by his Media Office on Tuesday, the President, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke called on the Federal Government to take a pre-emptive measure to forestall another crisis the recent Jos killings is capable of engendering.
While condemning the incident that led to the loss of lives of many travellers, the cleric in urged that a halt should be put to bloodshed in the country.
Oke, who is also the presiding Bishop of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan, condemned the gruesome killings, describing the violence as height of inhumanity and ungodliness.
“Nobody has the right to kill or take the life of his fellow human being. Before God, our creator, life is sacrosanct; He frowns at bloodshed in whatever disguise”, the PFN President said.
He urged the government to bring the arms of the law to bear on the matter and implored the authorities to swing into action with a view to preventing some individuals who might want to latch on to the situation to cause another round of mayhem.
In his advice, Oke said, “This won’t do anyone any good in the land. We have enough to contend with in the country than further plunging the nation into needless and avoidable problems.”
The PFN President appealed for calm, noting that the country could only develop in the atmosphere of peace. According to him, there’s no peace of mind where problems exist. “We should always strive to live peaceably among ourselves,” he said.
