Buy Swords To Defend Yourselves - CAN Tells Southern Kaduna Christians

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Ughelli, Delta State, Diamond Emuobor, on Wednesday urged Christians to “own a sword and defend themselves” against the rampaging attacks of Fulani herdsmen.



Emuobor, who is the General Overseer of Trinity Gospel Mission with its headquarters in Delta State, gave the call against the backdrop of the killings perpetrated by herdsmen in Southern Kaduna.

The Bishop alleged that the killings in the northern part of the country, especially in Southern Kaduna, was an attempt to wipe out Christianity.

He stressed that it was not unbiblical for a Christian to defend himself against external aggressors.

Emuobor urged President Muhammadu Buhari to do more towards ending the alleged killing of Christians.

He said, “Christians should defend themselves and he who has no sword, should sell his coat and buy one to defend himself.

“We are all human beings, nobody should catch you like a snail and slaughter you because you believe in Jesus Christ.

“We all would not die and those of us, who are alive, have the right to defend ourselves. Jesus says in the Book of Luke that those who have no sword should sell their coats and buy one for the defence of their lives.”
