The planned witchcraft conference by the B.I.C Ijomah Centre for Policy and Research in University of Nigeria, Nsukka has come under the attack of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
CAN on Thursday warned the university against proceeding with its planned conference on witchcraft saying the consequences of not heeding to the advice would be dire.
The CAN Chairman in the South-East zone, Bishop Dr Goddy Okafor stated this in a statement he released.
It reads: “I call on all Heads of Blocks, State Chairmen and other Stakeholders of Christian Association of Nigeria South-East Zone to take up aggressive prayers against the planned convention of Witches and Wizards slated to hold on November 26 at UNN.
“This convention is not of God and must not hold in Jesus name. Exodus 22:18 says, ‘Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live’.
“I hereby direct, all Christian Churches in South East of Nigerian to take up lamentation and pray against this evil movement in all our churches this coming Sunday.
“I also call upon all Christian Campus Fellowship Groups and other Christian Students’ Associations to join in this effort and stand up for JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD against this evil development in South East Of NIGERIA.”
The event is expected to hold between November 26 and November 27.
