[Authority] The Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), FCT Chapter, Rev Israel Akanji has con­demned the murder of Mrs Eunice Olawale and described it as a barbaric act of wicked­ness.
Akanji disclosed this to journalists Wednesday in Abuja during a press briefing.
He said that CAN expressed great displeasure at the occur­rence and requested to carry out a peaceful demonstration to express their condemna­tion.

The FCT CAN president also described the act as wor­risome and could be inter­preted as disallowing the right of speech and worship, which the Nigerian constitution de­fends.
“The circumstances sur­rounding the killing of this woman is an action in an evil encroachment on the peace which has existed in the FCT.
“We believe that this wom­an went out on her normal morning preaching as the peaceful environment has al­lowed.
“If there was no peace she will not preach as she did on the fateful day she died.
“There is need to nip this unacceptable behaviour in the bud so that it will not infringe on the peace that is there al­ready.”
He called on the Federal Government to act convinc­ingly about occurrence of this same issue to show that it was strongly unacceptable in the country.
“The act of brutality like this case, if not immediately and firmly checked, can esca­late in frequency, intensity and sophistication.
“This is not just to cover what has happened but the government should put all things in place to ensure that there is no reoccurrence of such act again.
“Those who are culprits and wickedly take the lives of others should always be ready to face the law,” Akanji said.
