The leadership of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has expressed concerns over the hijack of anti-police brutality and abuse protests.
The association urged protesters nationwide to withdraw from the streets, adding that their agitations have since been noted by the authorities in the country.
National president of the PFN, Dr. Felix Omobude, who stated this while unveiling the forthcoming Christian programme, tagged: “Bible Alive Believers International Convention (BABIC)” said genuine protesters have made their points loud and clear enough.
The cleric stated further that special prayers will be offered to God to help Nigeria overcome her pressing needs and problems, particularly the challenges of economic recession, terrorism, violence, crimes, kidnapping and corruption during the 5-day programme.
He said: “You should stop your street protest for now to prevent the hoodlums who have hijacked the hitherto peaceful exercise to continue with their condemnable acts of criminalities.
“I believe that our good youths didn’t plan or bargain for the eruption of violence that occurred across the country last week.
“No true Christian will have the mind to break into people’s shops and warehouses to loot goods,” he stated.
