Following last weekend’s threat by an unnamed Islamic group to bomb Christian worship centres in the country before December 26, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-east, has called on all Christians to be vigilant as the threat may not be an empty one.
Its South-east Chairman and General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Nigeria, Prof Paul Emeka, who put the Christians on red alert yesterday in Enugu, called on the Federal Government to mobilise the security agencies to forestall the planned attack.
Where the Federal Government thinks it is not capable of arresting the ugly situation, he advised for foreign assistance, especially the countries that had earlier indicated their interest to help the country.
The general superintendent, who asked Christians not to panic as a result of the threat, however, advised them not to depend on empty optimism. He pointed out that there was no doubt the members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect had infiltrated the southern part of the country and were ready to wreak havoc.
