‘Evil cannot overwhelm good’ – CAN sends messageto Boko Haram and sponsors



The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the May Day bombing in Nyanya which consumed almost two dozen lives and injured scores
more. Secretary General of CAN, Rev Musa Asake said “the news of the second attack is no only devastating but a sad day for our nation.” He added, “It is an act that must be condemned by all, no sane person will seek to destroy the lives of fellow compatriots in the name of an `ungodly ideology’ of a so called `religious belief’. “Like I have reiterated in recent times, terrorists or their sponsors must not be given the opportunity to prevail and I state categorically again, `evil cannot
overwhelm good and darkness cannot prevail over light’. This is a known fact that I want all Nigerians to take to heart in these trying times. “The forces of evil may have made in roads in one or two places but the collective good of the majority of Nigerians must and will always rise above the goal of the terrorists.
“The attack in Nyanya, the second in 15 days, is a clear indication of the terrorists motive which is to demoralise and destabilise the Nigerian work force by
putting fear in their minds, we must not allow this to happen.”
“At this moment I want to commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives and pray for speedy recovery for those injured, in the attack. This
calls for more vigilance and caution by all citizens, let us not allow these acts of inhumanity to dampen our spirit of patriotism for our country, let us all rise against this monster. “I once again call on those in charge of security to work harder to curtail the situation while I call on relief organisations to see to the welfare of the victims.”
