PFN raises alarm over ‘quiet Jihad’

By Dapo Akinrefon

THE Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has raised the alarm over what it called the “quiet Jihad” in some parts of the north, just as it alerted of fresh plans to launch similar attacks on other states of the north

National Chairman, Youth wing of the PFN, Dr Abel Damina, in a statement alleged that the Muslim fundamentalists were out to exterminate Christians in all parts of the north in the spirit of the Jihad. The statement also called on the Federal Government to urgently disclose the alleged sponsors of the recent Jos killings.

According to him, “there are lots of arrests going on in Jos. We want the Federal Government to enforce the recommendations of the various panels. That is one way that we can have peace.”

Expressing dismay over alleged complicity on the party of security agencies in the state, the cleric said: “I am really disappointed in the Army. How do you explain a situation where the governor of a state says there is curfew and nobody must go except the Army guys who were on patrol, only for people in Army uniform to go out and start killing Christians.?

“If there was no curfew, the people would have been able to go out and defend themselves. The soldiers were the ones who were supposed to protect the people.”
