CAN President Urges Christians To Defend Themselves
CAN President, Rev. Ayodele Olasupo has urged Christians to defend themselves against any form of attack since the insurgents are more powerful than the security agents.
Rev. Ayodele was speaking at the Rivers Baptist Conference International Camp Ground, Ndele in Emohua Local Government, Rivers State.
He said, “Lawyers have been speaking that the issue of self-defence is constitutional and also common sense, which may not be common, because if you see somebody coming with a dangerous weapon to kill you and you say it is not constitutional to defend yourself, then you must be ready to lose your life.
“It is common sense that you defend yourself from the danger that is coming; but if you think it is not good to defend yourself, good luck.
“Don’t be naive. If these marauders appear to be more powerful than the government and they cannot save us from them, then we save ourselves.“For about nine years now, these people have continued to kill and it appears like they have more guns and tactics than the security agents to be able to continue.
“How many of them have been arrested? How many of them prosecuted? Then if I allow them to take my life, I will be responsible for my foolishness.”
