Archbishop Chukwuma ‘confronts’ Buhari over execution of CAN Chairman by Boko Haram, advises president on ‘tired’ Service Chiefs

The Anglican Archbishop of the Province of Enugu, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has condemned the killing of Rev. Lawan Andimi, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Adamawa.

The deceased was reportedly killed in Michika Local Government Area of the state by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

Chukwuma told newsmen in Enugu on Wednesday that the church and its leaders totally condemn what he described as “this horrendous act of killing”.

Reacting, Chukuma in a statement to NAN, called on the Federal Government to reassure christian faithful in the north and church leaders of the security of their lives and property in the area.

The cleric also called for the sack of the serving Service Chiefs, who had “overstayed in office and become irrelevant.”

He said, “I call on church leaders in Nigeria to scale up their prayers for the battle should be a spiritual.


“We call on all Christian faithful to intensify their prayers on this battle that God will deliver Nigeria from this present challenge and agony of sustained terrorism.

“There should be no execution of any church leader again in Nigeria, otherwise Christians will react and that will be disastrous for this present administration.

“It is sad and disappointing. We demand that security agencies should produce the killers of the CAN leader to avert a vote of no confidence on them,’’ he added.
