The murdered Pastor

By Luminous Jannamike

The Nigeria Inter-Religious Council, under the joint leadership of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, and the CAN President, Reverend Samson Ayokunle, yesterday, asked the Federal Government to fish out those behind the killing of Pastor Shuaibu Yohanna, in Kano and to punish them accordingly.

Pastor Yohanna who headed the New Life for All Nations Church in Masu Community, Sumaila Local Government Area of Kano,was reportedly killed by irate youths.

The two clerics also called on men and women of goodwill to rise up against religious intolerance, saying no reason could justify the gruesome murder of Yohanna. In a statement signed on their behalf by NIREC’s Executive Secretary, Fr. Prof. Cornelius Omonokhua, the duo recalled that those who killed the pastor also attacked the church building, its staff office and school, and also destroyed his house.
