THE Christian Association of Nigeria has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari for declaring the agitators for Biafra as terrorists.
Speaking in Abuja at a Collaborative Interfaith Peace and Security Capacity Building Workshop, organized by the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, NARC, in collaboration with Inter-Religious Peace Initiative in Abuja, yesterday President of Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, Reverend Sampson Ayokunle, said the alleged marginalization of Igbos gave rise to the ongoing agitation and asked Buhari to take urgent steps to address it.
Speaking through Apostle Nyeneime Andy, the General Overseer of Holy Ghost Ambassadors Church, he said,  “The Biafra people are going through a lot, not because they want to be violent, but because they want to be heard.  



“One of the things they want to tell Nigerians is that the Biafrans are not a terrorist group. The people want to talk to Nigerians about a general issue that they do not want to be marginalized.
“CAN is not in support of what Biafra agitators are doing, CAN is also not in support of killing and disobedience. Just like herdsmen, so many people take action just on their own without the consent of the state.
“Today, we are coming together to talk about how Nigeria could be better because there’s no other way for Nigeria to be better than to talk about unity.”
