The advice was contained in a statement the Christian body’s General Secretary, Musa Asake released on Tuesday in which it said government has shirked its responsibility of protecting lives and property.

According to the statement, “Nigeria is dancing a macabre dance of death, both for the nation and for its citizens. It is time to stop the beat and let common sense guide the nation out of the present quagmire. A stitch in time saves nine.”

The statement reads further, “The unprovoked attacks on Christians and the authority’s inaction is becoming unbearable and may not be tolerated anymore. Inasmuch as we will continue to call on Christians to remain tolerant and law abiding, it is becoming inevitable to also call on them to buckle up and be ready to defend themselves against these incessant unprovoked and mindless attacks.

“About a month ago in Kano, Mrs. Bridget Agbaheme, a 74-year-old Christian was murdered at Wambai market due to an altercation with a Muslim who came to the front of her shop to perform ablution. Her offence was that she objected to the Islamic washing rite in front of her shop.

“Just last week, a clergyman of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Reverend Zakariya was killed by attackers suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in Obi LGA of Nasarawa State. They attacked him on his farm, cut off his arms and legs, then they chopped his head with a machete.”
