President of the United Church of Christ in Nigeria (HEKAN) Rev. Amos G. Kiri, who took his reading from Psalms 46 vs 1- 11, charged the congregation not to be weary with the happenings but raise their voices to God in prayers.

He noted any government that is not worried about the well-being of her citizens does not deserve to be called a government.

He challenged Christians in government to speak against all forms of injustice against the church in Nigeria.

“Insensitive government and leaders must wake up from their slumber, government must listen to our cry, the killings in southern Kaduna must stop, enough is enough and what is good for the goose should be good for the gander,” he said.

Chairman Kaduna CAN Reverend Joseph Hayab urged for continued prayers for God to expose those behind the killings.

He called on Christian leaders with specific mention of Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor Dr. Paul Eneche and many others to speak up and not keep quiet against the killings.

President Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) Hon. Jonathan Asake thanked the church for standing with them in prayers.

He said the killings must not be given political colouration but condemned as a crime against humanity.
