Pastor Omolewa Murder: PFN Wants Govt Act, refrain from lip-service
Kaduna State Chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has called both the Federal and Kaduna State governments to expedite action against senseless killings and stop paying lip-service to matters of insecurity throughout the Country.
The message was contained in a statement issued on Thursday by the State Chairman of PFN, Apostle Emmanuel Egoh Bako and made available to newsmen in Kafanchan, Jema’a local government area of Kaduna State.
The Statement expressed sadness over the gruesome murder of Pastor Jeremiah Kehinde Omolewa, the resident pastor of Living Faith Church, Romi New Extension; Kaduna, who was murdered in cold blood by gunmen along Kaduna-Abuja expressway on Sunday, August 4, 2019.
The statement read in part: “This is not an isolated case but part of the general and daily news which now bedevil our Nation.
“The government, both at the national and state levels should match her words with action and be proactive in handling the deteriorating cases of insecurity in Kaduna State and Nigeria as a whole.
“PFN does not subscribe to the lame and habituated defense that the government and security agencies have been overwhelmed by the challenges and or that they are on top of the situation.”
The Statement then urged the government to brace up to its primary statutory responsibility of guaranteeing the safety of lives and property of the citizens just as he expressed condolences to the immediate family of the deceased as well as the Living Faith Church family.
