The Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) has organised a nationwide protest to demand justice for Deborah Samuel, a 200-level female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, who was burnt to death within the school premises on Thursday for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad.
CAN directs churches across the country to join the protest.
CAN made the call via a circular that was released by the General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, on Saturday, and obtained by SaharaReporters.
According to SaharaReporters, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has directed all churches in the country and Christian stakeholders to hold a peaceful protest nationwide over the gruesome killing of Deborah Yakubu by a mob of Muslim youths in Sokoto State for alleged blasphemy.
“We urge those who could afford it to make use of the traditional media and the social media and others can use only the social media to give it wide coverage in other to sensitise the whole world. We also call on Nigerian Christians in the diaspora to join us using our embassies all over the world.
“The occasion can also be used to pray for Deborah’s family and friends, peace for the country, victory for the Church and godly political leaders in the coming general election. Thanks and God bless you all.”
