A pastor at the Christ Evangelical and Intercessory Fellowship Ministries, Kaduna, Yohanna Buru, on Saturday fed 400 prison inmates, mainly Muslims, at the Kaduna Central Prisons to mark the Eid el Kabir celebration.

Mr. Buru also provided food for 600 inmates of a Destitute Home located on Kano Road in the metropolis.

Presenting the food along with soft drinks and bathing soaps, the pastor said that the gesture was to enable the prisoners and the destitute to participate in the sallah celebration.

He called on well-meaning Nigerians to always remember and assist the less-privilege in the society.

“We share whatever we have so as to make them feel happy on this special day,” he said.

He stressed the need to straighten relationship between Muslims and Christians in the country, saying, “we are brothers and sisters and we must be united and live as one.”

He called on the government to do more in the welfare of prison inmates across the country.

Receiving the items at the destitute home, a former National Vice-President of People with Disability, Rilwan Muhammed, thanked the pastor for remembering the inmates during the sallah.

Mr. Muhammed prayed God to strengthen Buru and provide for him so that he would continue to assist the less-privileged.

    You don’t patronize wild barbaric animals with gestures meant for humans. It amounts to an appeasement for their criminal jihadism. Let them rot in jail.

      I agree. It is one thing to feed them if they are hungry, to see them in true need and to reach out to them with the love of Christ. But to give them stuff to celebrate a Muslim holiday? Why don’t you provide the sat it’s with provisions to celebrate their black mass? I don’t see a lot of difference. In so doing you are expressing acceptance of and supporting a demonic religion.

    Lets See what Jesus said to do….

    (Luke 5:30-32) And their scribes and the Pharisees complained against His disciples,
    saying, “Why do You eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” {31} Jesus
    answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but
    those who are sick. {32} “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to
    repentance.”

    (Matthew 5:44) But *I* say unto you, Love your enemies, [bless those who curse you,] do
    good to those who hate you, and pray for those who [insult you and]
    persecute you,

    What? You mean Boko Haram didn’t look after their improsoned brothers? The Saudis sent no financial aid? Again, we seethe majesty of theChristian ethos and the barbarity of the Muhamedan death cult. I will ask God to forgive me since I can’t find in my heart right now to forgive MUSLIMS for the pain and suffering they always seem to bring at the point of a sword.

      Good post

    Imagine comments from people that claim they believe in God. Hatred is their religion not the religion they are professing. I have worked in the American Prison before, we have Christians, Jews and Muslims. While the Christians are the majority, the Muslims and Jews are the minority. So criminals are human from any religion. If you go to South East and South South prisons, majority of those in there are Christians.

    What the pastor did should be commended and everybody should be encouraged to do so irrespective of tribe or religion. Everybody is an enemy of someone. Who knows who will make heaven? Some ignorant will say the Christians, some will say the Muslims, but in China today, more than a billion are not a Christian or a Muslim, and some of them will make heaven before the so called Muslims and Christians.

    I have to say this pastor definitely did what God commanded Christians to do.
