“As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators are not human beings.”
The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Ayo Oritsejafor, has condemned Monday’s bomb explosion in Abuja. He said the perpetrators are not human beings and their corpses should be given to pigs when they die.
Over 70 people were killed in a bomb blast at a crowded motor park in Nyanya, on the outskirts of Abuja on Monday morning. Many more were injured in the attack.
“This is very inhumane, ungodly and barbaric. I don’t even have the adjectives to describe what these mad people have done,” Mr. Oritsejafor said in a statement on Tuesday.
“As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators are not human beings and in my own opinion, when they finally die their corpses should be given to pigs because they are on the same level with pigs,” he said.
Sympathising with families who lost their loved ones in the attack, Mr. Oritsejafor called on security agencies to fish out their colleagues who could be sabotaging their efforts.
“There are people within the security agencies that sympathize with this madness. As they discover them, they should be exposed and dismissed from the service,” he added.
The cleric also condemned anyone providing funds for the terrorist.
“As the judgment of God comes upon them (the terrorists), the judgment of God will also come on those who are sponsoring them,” he said. “Anybody who has given N1:00 (One Naira) to these people, whether they are local people or foreign financiers, the same judgment will come upon them and their children. They will not escape it. So those are my words.”
