Chibok: Presbyterian Church synod warns against politicisation

LAGOS—THE Synod of the West of The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, PCN, has warned against the politicization of the abduction of the Chibok school girls in Borno State, by the terror sect, Boko Haram.

In a communiqué issued at the end of its 19th Annual Synod held at the PCN church, Ikotun, in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State, the Church urged Nigerians to rise above political and other parochial affiliations and join hands with security agencies to rescue the girls and deal a death blow to the security challenge posed by Boko Haram and other insurgents.

“It is particularly disconcerting,” the Church said “that despite the spiritual interventions by churches and mosques and the numerous inter-faith conferences and dialogues, the level of insurgency, religious intolerance, and other criminal activities as well as social vices remained on the increase. Government must be alive to its responsibility of providing security and the freedom of worship to Nigerians.”
