CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor

By John Shiklam

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), the umbrella body for Muslims in the North, alleged Thursday that Christians were disguising as Muslims to burn down churches and indulge in terrorist activities.

But the spokesman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)  in  the 19 Northern states and Abuja, Mr. Sunday Oibe, in a reaction maintained that no right thinking person can insinuate that Christians will disguise as Muslims and go about  bombing churches and killing people.

The JNI in a communiqué issued at the end of its three-day retreat in Kaduna also accused the CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, of making unguarded statements that is heating up the polity.

The communiqué, which was signed by the Secretary General of JNI, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, called on the CAN president to tell Christians to stop mischievously disguising as Muslims in perpetrate acts of terrorism, declaring that JNI could no longer tolerate this double face attitude.

The Islamic body also lamented that majority of the media establishment in the country were owned by Christian dominated South, alleging that they are always biased against Islam and Muslims.

Participants at the retreat, according to the communiqué, noted with dismay the current state of insecurity and panic in the country demonstrated by incessant violence and high spate of bombings, which had led to unfathomable loss of innocent lives and property.

The communiqué reads in part: “The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, instead of contributing positively towards achieving National cohesion has rather chosen the path of insinuation and therefore heating the polity.

“Education which is supposed to be the basic locomotive of development has unfortunately been given a secondary importance by all segments of government. Concerned authorities have in many cases failed to give convincing answers to many of the grievances of Muslims in Nigeria.

“There are so many contradictions and confusion in the way the issue of Boko Haram is handled by security agents and the media. Majority of the media establishment in the country, especially the Christian dominated southern media, have always demonstrated bias against Islam and Muslims.

“Participants condemn in totality the on-going spate of bombings and killings of guiltless Nigerians irrespective of their regional, religious or ethnic inclinations. JNI calls on Nigerians to shun violence and embrace peaceful means of settling their legitimate grievances.

“JNI urges the Federal Government to call the president of CAN to order before he causes religious crisis in the country, through his unguided utterances which has started eroding the long built mutual respect between Muslims and Christians.  CAN president must stop his people to stop mischievously disguising as Muslims in perpetrating acts of terrorism.

“The meeting calls on Federal and affected state governments as well as all security agents to, as a matter of urgency, investigate the several reported cases of Christians who disguise as Muslims to burn churches. JNI can no longer tolerate this double face attitude. Thorough investigations must also be made to unveil the sponsors of those Christian terrorists.

“JNI calls on Muslims to be vigilant and always report to the authorities any case of injustice and maltreatment meted on any Muslim either by Christian extremist or bad elements among the security agents. Copies of the complaints should be sent to the state offices of JNI attached with a comprehensive report of the incidents.

“JNI reiterates its commendation to the National Assembly for their outright rejection of same sex marriage. To this end, the meeting specifically applauds some concerned legislators who have so far demonstrated concern for their people.

“JNI calls on government at all levels to pay serious attention to the development of education as no society can progress without giving education its priority. We want to remind all Christian zealots in Nigeria, that our love for peace must not be mistaken as a licence to make us second class citizens in a country where we constitute a majority.

“We condemn in strong terms all acts of terrorism perpetrated by any group in Nigeria. As we remain confused regarding whether the Boko Haram members are known by the government as clearly stated that they are in the government or there are faceless (as claimed by the NSA).

“We also call on the media to always be fair in their reporting of issues as that is the only way we can understand issues as there are and take appropriate measures to address them.

“Worried by the recurrent reported cases of abuse of fundamental human rights of Muslims of various conflict areas, JNI strongly call on all security agents to consciously do their job of protecting the lives, property and integrity of Nigerians as opposed to intimidating, harassing, and harming innocent Muslims.”

However in his reaction, the spokesman of CAN in the 19 Northern states and Abuja, Oibe, described the allegation against Christians as baseless, senseless and  calculated to divert attention from the real issue that is posing serious problem to the nation.

“They are trying to divert attention. Look at what is even happening in the whole of the West African sub-region.

“It is very irrational for any right thinking person to say that a Christian could disguise as a Muslim and go to throw bomb at churches and kill people  in places, like Madalla, Jos, Maiduguri, Adamawa, Damaturu and other places.

“If they don’t know, let them be aware that the President of CAN speaks the mind of Nigerian Christians, particularly Christians in the North and we are solidly behind him.

“The Boko Haram Islamic sect and their sponsors are those who are heating up the polity and not the President of CAN. JNI should be ashamed of this baseless accusation.

“We urge JNI to call the Boko Haram Islamic sect to order rather than trying to divert attention on the real issues. Their allegation that Christians disguise as Muslims to bomb churches is baseless and senseless,” Oibe said.

  • This JNI communique must be the dumbest communique of all time! So illogical and irrational, it borders on crass stupidity and mindless ignorance. Personally, I know many brilliant Northern Nigerian Muslims. May be they do not belong to JNI but if they do, they should not tolerate this level of mediocre misrepresentation of Muslims in the North.

  • Pastor Ayo is courageous enough to speak the truth and all those who believe in the Truth know so. The double speak and deliberate false hood being peddled by JNI is part of what we know as al-taquiyah. If it was Christians that carried out what was witnessed in Niger and Yobe against muslims , Nigeria would have been in flames! Abi na lie? But Christ didn't teach us that. Who were those that started any sort of religious crises in Nigeria? The history books are there for all to see. The truth is what sets men free. Pastor Ayo and CAN, don't ever stray from that please.

  • I sincerely call upon the JNI to control the actions of the boko haram sect since they know that Christians disguised their selves as Muslims to burn down churches and the killing of the innocent citizenry. But for me the assertion is baseless and nonsensical for christian to kill his follow human being talk less of his follow christian, no it is not in our diary.

  • I am totally disappointed by the statement of the so call JNI for there shameless complain about the CAN president, who was just saying christian should defend themselves and no to attract anybody. The fact still remain, Slam promote and encourage terrorism, the peace u preach is just in your lips and not from your heart. Tell us one single church that was attract by any disguised christian as u claim, but even little children can tell countless numbers of churches that were attract by the so call religion of peace.

  • Oibe my brother in Christ, you are blessed already.
    The JNI or whatever they call themselves should be mindful of their utterances either. Uncircumcised people trying to divert attention as you said. No Christian can in whatever disguise burn or throw bombs or weapon of mass destruction at Churches killing people in their hundreds let alone fellow Christians. They should be aware that they themselves are threatening the unity of this country and should be ready to stand in to take responsibility of whatever consequences would result. July 1967 should sound a great warning and rethink to them or if they want a repeat of it, should be out clearly to initiate their intent.
    When in the name of Boko Haram they are wasting lives and are now trying to divert the blame to who. What injustice do they or are they suffering in Nigeria, because a southerner and a Christian is now the President that is they want to distablize the country.
    If they are tired of Nigeria, they should own up and secede as the case may be and let us be. They have ruled this country with their Islam for over forty years; no bombing, killing, crises or even Boko Haram. And now it is a Christian, they are unrest. Are they not the infidels by their actions and reasonings? If you don't want to stay with me, you leave me. It is becoming unbearable. Lets not experience any thing stupid or barbaric any longer.

  • Does the JNI expect us to sympathise with their uneducated status by allowing them make such baseless statements? The responsibility of educating their people and establishing their own media networks falls on their community. If they decide that they prefer to wait for the government to provide all their needs, then they will continue to be illiterate, wallowing in their ignorance. It is astounding that this is the outcome of their 3 day meeting! Obviously, they need someone educated to help them draw up and agenda on how to move their people forward! Christians disguising themselves as Muslims?! Indeed!

  • We are all guilty of stereotype thinking and assumptions. Colonialism has denied us the chance to be rational. The first comment is as naive as the accusation. Those who are interested in making sure Nigeria does not grow know our weak points, one of which is religion. Such external forces can disguise as Muslims so as stoke up violence. Also before presenting the allegation to the public it is important to come along with Indisputable evidence.

  • Oibe, brother in Christ, remain blessed.
    JNI or whatever they called themselves, uncircumcised Ishmealites instigating problems here in our blessed Nigeria. Who is speaking and calling God's people? They should stand in responsibility of their acts and not calling the Christians for no Christian in whatsoever manner will embark on such a dastard act against the Christiandom.
    What injustice are they suffering in Nigeria? They have been ruling this country for over 40 years now, only but merely a year and now that a Christian and a southerner is ruling this country that causing all these tumults.
    If they don't want to stay with us, should leave us. Nigeria is for us and whoever that do not want to stay with us should go to whereever he/she or they want to belong.
    Islam, Boko Haram, JNI enough is enough.

  • JNI is just doing what you expect from a "good muslim" - TELL LIES TO DECEIVE YOU PERCEIVED ENEMY". They know the bombers but they need to tell lies to show that they are good muslims. Southerners should start raising their own army to defend them. These people (JNI) do not believe in peace.

  • It is very unfortunate that Dr Khalid Abubakar Aliyu can openly tell lies accusing Christians of disguising as Muslims to burn and killed people in the church and throughout the communique there is no where he mentioned where this happened. If perceived Islam scholar of his status can talk recklessly like this what do you expect from his followers? Nigerians have now known those who are given Boko Haram Members moral and financial support and cover to continue to attack Christians in the North. What Aliyu should know is that by "their action, utterances, deeds and template we shall know them" My advice to him is that he should not start a fight he cannot finish as his men are not the only one having monopoly of violence. Abubakar Aliyu should travel to Southern Nigeria and see how Muslims and Christians co exist and related, better still, if his conscience could not allowed to travel to southern Nigeria, he should learn from members of his society from the South. God or Allah will judge all those who are given moral and financial support to Boko Haram members who are killing, maiming people in the Northern States.

  • Why is it so difficult for the North to call for Sovereign National Conference or a Referendum? Why are they scared of being on their own? They should agree to form their own country and leave the Southerners alone, that is the only way peace could reign. They scared of a split because of just one thing....... RESOURCES of the SOUTH. Is it by force to be together? Nigeria should split up, that does not mean we would not assist them in anyway we can. The idea is to enslave the SOUTH make them weak and instill fear in them and exploit their resources. The tool used for this is BOKO HARAM.

What Boko Haram is doing to the nation is to divide it North and South. With this comment by JNI top men, it confirms that they too are in support of the division of the country. May your desire come to pass.

  • Why all these rubbish in here?! Why not let us focus on how to move ahead and stop trading blames? The CAN mouthpiece is right and wrong at the same time just like the JNI. Cases of what the JNI refered to as Christians disguising as Muslims are there and well spelt out in the near past events in our media. But that is not what should be that emphasized as done by the JNI. Though well guarded speeches should be made by our leaders be them CAN leaders or any other, because their words move a lot of members under them. I pray God almighty gives us the masses and the leaders as well the wisdom to make the best of contributions at our different levels towards helping in saving our dear nation. God bless Nigeria and Nigerians.

  • from the comments being made, it is correct to say the average nigerian is neither educated nor exposed. if most of you were educated, you would look at the issue objectively. both muslims and christians alike are to blame for what is happening to nigeria. people who went through institutions of learning allowing themselves to be brainwashed by pastors who are after nothing but tithes and malams that have become contractors! come on! listen to yourselves, BLOODY ILLITERATES!

And my expirience shows that lack of education runs through all nigerian sections as we have functional illiterates as many online postings show

Who ever told you that the Hausa man is not crafty? See how they are turning defence into attacks? See how they are putting their victims into a tight corner of defence? Stirring controversies takes the heat generated by the current arrests of their hit men off them. Nobody can be fooled. We knew long ago those orchestrating the bombings.

  • Well spoken AISHAT MUKHTAR, NASIRU & every rational person who has made statements that are constructive. Iam ashamed ofeveryone who has made statements that don't contribute positively to the growth & togetherness of Nigerians & Nigeria. There have been supposedly Christians caught by the security forces who were allegedly bombers. And these persons haven't be prosecuted, the question is why haven't they been prosecuted? where are these people now? Why shouldn't I suspect there's some conspiracy going on here by the people in authority. My take is that the monies voted for security in our next budget is close to N1trillion & these security people need some level of violence to continue in the country for them to be able to continue to steal our money. Last year it was about N500B or more & what was achieved with that colossal sum? The bombings have gone on unabated & there seems no end in sight. Well JNI's statements are just plain unfortunate & essentially diverting attention from the real issues. Whether the bombers are juju people or aliens from Pluto, the most important thing is that they are stopped because everybody is affected every dimension imaginable. Also if the CAN president is making unguarded statements, he must stop it because he has no right to do that because Nigeria, hey the world can not afford a major conflict in Nigeria. Where 160million people go hide when wahala bust? Ordinary Liberia, Ivory Coast, Somalia, Sudan the whole world together haven't been able to successfully solve the humanitarian crisis there. Wo if it happens here Nigerians would overrun the whole of Africa. The level of humanitarian crisis would be unprecedented in the history of man kind. Gbo gbo yin elo fun ara yin ni brain O!

The only way to escape the blood of the innocent Islam has killed is to REPENT and embrace the free salvation that only Jesus offers.

  • A religion founded on violence is laying claims to peace that has never been in them from inception. Is it a lie that the founder of islam fought 32 jihads in his lifetime? I am convinced the so called christians disguising as muslims to burn churches could be some jobless people sponsored by the same people sponsoring boko haram to create this false impression that christians are burning their own churches not the muslim sect. It is not in doubt that the average muslim in the north sees himself/herself as superior to other muslims from other parts of the country and considers the christian as sub-human, that informs their post-election violence when it was clear GEJ has won and will rule over them. My advice to them is to look inwards to cure themselves of this disease (religious fanaticism and illiteracy) first before attacking CAN president who only said christians should defend themselves from being killled by the terrorists.

I remember in Jos where we have almajiris being given N500 to go burn Churches, are they Christains? Haba Idris why are you thinking in that direction?

  • Since 911, the anti-terrorism strategy is to cause commotion in Muslim dominated nations among Muslims or Muslims against others to divert their attention against the West which sees Islam as the source of terror. This explains the Shiite-Sunni conflict in Iraq and Pakistan. The Sunni-Sunni conflict in Somali, the Muslim-Muslim, Muslim-Christian conflicts in Sudan. These agents can buy naïve people to bomb churches then later others to bomb mosques as it may appear to be a retaliation in order to trigger a war of mutual destruction. In the end, neither the Christian nor the Muslims will come out a winner, only that the oil fields would be permanently occupied by foreign oil-thirsty nations. If Nigeria divides, they say it would break and shatter in pieces, neither the Yoruba nor the Igbos should ever dream of a drop of oil. So don’t be naïve and listen to the voice of peace and decorum. Boko Haram is an exaggerated phenomenon our security if seriously directed can squash out as their leaders was squashed. The issue is the hidden force that is using them to divide the polity.

  • This is the dumbest statement i have heard since the Boko Haram killings started. If a christian disguises as a muslim, he will attack a mosque. People talking like this are not educated and lack sense of judgement. There is nothing like a good unbeliever. The people who bombed St. Theresa Church in Madalla knew there were mostly christians of Igbo extraction in that church. It was just an extension of the Muslim hatred for the least islamised major ethnic group in Nigeria. No one has the monopoly to violence. Extremist christians too can attack mosques but our Lord taught us not to fight. However, enough is enough. The other jaw is no longer available for slaps.

  • Gen.16verse12 says it all. Pls whatever action any aggressive muslim could perform,don't let it take your focus from christ. It only confirms the words from the Holy Bible.

  • This is the highest madness i have heard in my entire life, christians disguising as muslim to bomb churches. It therefore means that the JNIs are the most illiterate group existing on earth.

  • The issue is beyond name calling or educational posturing. Does the northern albeit muslim elite endorse the arrest and trial of religious violence suspects in a court of law? Is this the position of Sultan of Sokoto? Until this question is answered and applied, dancing around words is counter-productive

  • I always say this, all these northerners are evil people, now they are trying to turn the truth of exactly what happened up side down. Now, they are blaming the christians that they started killing people.

  • JNL or whatever you claim to be ,You are sponsoring boko haram to
    destroy Nigeria,making it look like the present administration is weak.
    You are trying to divert attention from the problem you all started.
    Chritsians must not buy into this pretence.You talk about muslems
    being peace lovers,do you know exactly what and how to live in
    peace with fellow human biengs. Muslems don't understand
    the word peace, they wont kill innocent people for few hundred
    naira. JNL are not truthful we must not believe them. It is muslems
    who disquise themselves as christians to commit these atrocities.
    SSS must continue to fish these criminals out and punish them accordingly

  • So they are now ashamed of all those killings ! JNI , are you now trying to fool Nigerians ? Are you trying to convince Nigerians that Kabiru Sokoto, Qaka , makau and all those members of Boko Haram, who actually claimed responsibilities for all those mass assasinations were christians in disguise ?
