Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the Founder, Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, has reacted to the gruesome murder of Deborah Samuel, a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, by her colleagues over alleged blasphemy.
The victim, a 200 level economics student was burnt to death within the school premises on Thursday for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad
Mbaka instructed Christians nationwide to rise and defend their belief, asking how many people have been killed for insulting Jesus Christ.
He said, “They have killed this child. They accused her of insulting Mohammed and killed her.
“This is what I have been saying. Christians are facing lots of battles. Christians should not begin to fight among themselves.
Inter-religious and intra religious war should stop. Inter and Intra denominational war should stop.
“I am pleading with those who are fighting against Fr Mbaka and the Adoration Ministry to go to Sokoto State and fight those who killed one of our daughters.
“Should that girl be killed? Every Christian should rise and defend our faith.
The hour has come. It’s a challenge of faith. How many of them that insulted Jesus have been killed?
“Is it still one country? If Nigeria is going to be one country; let it be, but if this is what we are going to be experiencing; let everybody go home.
I said it last Sunday and I am repeating it again,” Father Mbaka added.
