500000 houses razed in southern Kaduna.
Isn’t it time for CAN to use its tithes to buy
arms for Christians for self defense?’
‘Same happened when govt didn’t defend
Itsekiris against Ijaws, they armed
themselves and ended the war. It’s called
balance of terror’
‘Those attacking me don’t know English. I
only called for self-defence. If no one
attacks them then there will be peace. FG
should do its job’ And today he tweeted
‘Southern Kaduna youths have threatened
self defense if neglect continues. Is anyone
listening?’ Fani-Kayode backing the call by
Omatseye tweeted that
‘I support @samomatseye’s call on Xtians
in southern Kaduna to defend themselves
from genocide and his appeal to CAN to
help them.’
‘Self-defence, like self-determination, is a
right. Those that take pleasure in mass
murder and carnage must be stopped.
Enough is enough.’
