Fani-Kayode challenges Boko Haram, says Christians are good fighters too

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister, has warned the extremist Boko Haram sect that vengeance by Christians over the continuous killing of their members might be slow but is sure to come and would be intense when it does.

Mr. Kayode made the warning in reaction to the radical sect’s admission to have carried out the recent attack in Plateau State.

The Boko Haram had also admonished Christians to “accept Islam or they will never have peace”.

To this, the ex-minister said that the threats by the sect did not hold sway for all Christians. According to him, “we cannot all be intimidated into a gutless cowering silence. … The more the bloodshed, the more our faith in God is strengthened”.

Mr. Fani-Kayode told Boko Haram insurgents that they should not mistake the peace exhibited by Christians as cowardice. “We are slow to anger but irresistible in battle. The blood of the saints shall be avenged by the living God,” he said.

He also warned the sect that the death of Christians will be avenged by their God. “He is a consuming fire. …he is the Lord God of hosts and he is irresistible in battle; he is a man of war and he guards his own jealously,” the former minister cautioned.
