Olonade laments killing of citizens


ArchBishop/President, Gospel Baptist Conference of Nigeria and Overseas (GBCN & O), Most Revd. Peter Olurotimi Olonade has decried the level of insecurity in the country, and the way Christians and others are killed on a daily basis in the North. He called on those in the corridors of power to quickly address the issue before it gets out of hand.

He condemned the havoc Boko Haram has caused many families in the country, and wondered why it has been impossible for the government to nip the problem of insurgency in the bud.

He said: “God hates termination of human life, hence, commands in His Word that no man should kill a fellowman. God created man to be free and never imposed Himself on any man to serve or worship Him, though He warns every man on the consequence of his action on earth.”


Olonade, who spoke at the one-year remembrance service of his predecessor, the late Most Revd. Magnus Atilade and former Chairman, Southwest, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), called on the government to be bold enough to confront the Boko Haram sect, whose main target was innocent Christians.

He described Atilade as a man, who would be remembered for his heart of love, respect for other people’s talents and defender of the vulnerable in the society.
