UGHELLI—A member of the National Advisory Council of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Bishop Simeon Okah, has advised religious leaders in Delta State against making provocative statements which could threaten the existing peace between Muslims and Christians in the state.

Okah, who is the Bishop of Flock of Christ Mission, Warri, gave the charge while reacting to a report credited to Mr Sadiq Musa, a Muslim leader in the state.

He said: “The comments of the Muslim leader tend to cast aspersions on the national president of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, a respected leader of all Christians in the country, who is held in very high esteem in Delta State.

“The call by Pastor Ayo on Christians in the North to defend themselves against Boko Haram was a precautionary measure to avoid being killed and not an incitement to fight as erroneously portrayed by Musa.”
