Bestselling author, Pastor Reno Omokri has written the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, urging him to ask President Muhammadu Buhari whenever he visits him again at the Abuja House in London why there has been no punishment over the alleged killing of over 347 Shiites.
Pastor Omokri also asked the man of God why he too and the world have kept silence over the killings Shiites in Nigeria, saying such act does not depict the good message taught in the holy bible through the story of the Good Samaritan. His letter read thus:
“Dear Most Reverend Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“Sir, when next you visit Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, could you please ask him why no one has been punished for the deaths of 347 Shiite men, women, children and infants on his watch on December 15, 2015?
“Why do you continue to affirm the man who has treated the deaths as though it was nothing? Why the silence of the world?
“Civilians died in a war situation in Aleppo and the world gets agitated. Civilians died in Zaria where there is no war and the world accepts it. Is it because they are Shiites?
“Are the Shiites not children of God? Do their lives not matter as much as President Buhari’s life? Remember that the Good Samaritan was not a Jew.
“He was a Samaritan, the enemy of the Jews. If you still keep quiet and one day (God forbid) Nigerian Anglicans are killed (killings in churches are not infrequent in Nigeria), how can you speak up against the killings without appearing to be a hypocrite?”
