IPOB: CAN supports Kumuyi's planned Aba crusade

The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has gotten the support of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) concerning his forthcoming crusade in Aba, Abia State.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had advised the cleric that he should restrain from holding the crusade in the region because gunmen could hijack the crusade and it would be blamed on the group.

However, in an interview with The Punch, the spokesperson of CAN, Adebayo Oladeji, said that it is unfortunate that the state is going through security challenges. Nevertheless, the decision of Kumuyi to come to the state would be a blessing and it will bring victory to the people of the state.

Oladeji said, “It is unfortunate that we have killings going on in the South East. If the political will is there, I believe the killings in the region would have ended.

“We have a situation where you have IPOB declaring sit-at-home and despite the assurance by the government, people will decide to listen to IPOB. Is that what Nigeria should be? This is the situation we find ourselves in.

“If IPOB issued such a statement, it is just a reflection of what we are going through in the country. This situation is a precarious one. What CAN will say is that our politicians are in the rat race again. We should open our eyes and vote for people who can protect us.

“There’s nothing we can do than to appeal to them (IPOB). We want IPOB to know that his coming to that part of the country is going to be a blessing and bring victory to the people of the state and the region at large.”

The crusade has been scheduled to hold for six days – May 24 to 29, 2022.
