Group decries endless crises in Jos

By Olasunkanmi Akoni

The Organisation of Christian in Demo-cracy, OCD, has condemn-ed what it called unprovo-ked attack on the law-abiding Christians in Plateau State.

The organisation, in a statement signed by its President, Bishop Theophi-lus Ajose, said, “we view with dismay the carnage and unholy termination of lives of innocent people, especially Christians in Jos, Plateau State. While we pray for the repose of the souls of our departed brethren, we call on the authorities to reduce the hardship of the people and to rehabilitate displaced ones.

“While we  appreciate the importance of the curfew imposed in the state by the government, we ask the curfew hours to be relaxed on Sunday mornings to allow Christians worship God as guaranteed by the Constitution of Nigeria.”

The organisation, therefore, called on the state government to involve real and genuine religious leaders of both religions in a dialogue with a view to finding a lasting solution to incessant religious crises in  the state.

According to the organisation, “we also call on prophetic intercessors to start strategic level and  prophetic intercession concerning Plateau State and to observe a fast every Tuesday for the next four weeks to dislodge the principality of Plateau State and his demonic human agents.

“We appreciate the efforts of the Federal and the state governments in bringing peace to the state while we call on the evil godfathers fomenting trouble in Plateau State to know that as Christians, we have a Father, God, whose vengeance is more than all the soldiers of this world,” it stated.
