The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has described as alarming and unacceptable, the continuous killing and kidnapping of Christian clerics in Nigeria.

Bishop Francis Wale Oke, President, PFN, in a statement said, “As an organisation that worships God, we pray that the wrath of God shall fall heavily on all those responsible for terrorising Nigerians and killing innocent citizens.”

On the recent killing of Catholic cleric in Niger State, the statement condemned what it called, “the recent gruesome murder of Rev. Fr. Father Isaac Achi of St. Peters and Paul Catholic Church, Kafin-koro, Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger state by bandits”. 

The statement explained that the bandits, according to reports, invaded his residence at about 3am on January 15 and after failing to gain entrance into the residence, set the house ablaze and the clergy man was burnt to death.

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria further explained that the deceased colleague, Father Collins, was equally shot on the shoulder while trying to escape and was rushed to the hospital, describing the incident as must unfortunate. 

The statement added that PFN is deeply saddened by the killing of Achi, describing it as, “indeed one killing too many” , saying, “The continuous killing, as well as kidnapping of Christian clerics in Nigeria is very alarming and unacceptable.”

The organisation decried a situation where Nigeria has become a killing field where people are slaughtered like animals and the perpetrators go scot free.

“This has to be stopped at all costs. The government must do everything possible to bring an end to this evil,” the statement said. 

The PFN called on the federal government and security agencies to intensify efforts to salvage what it called “this ugly situation” and give Nigerians a new lease of life, stressing that the lawless and barbaric act has continued for too long, without anyone being arrested and prosecuted by the government.

According to the organisation, the criminals may think they have escaped from the judgment of man, but they can never escape from the judgment of the almighty God who sees everything.

The PFN, however, extended its heartfelt condolences to the family of Achi and the Catholic Church and pray that God will comfort them and ensure peace and unity in the country.
