The Christian Association of Nigeria has totally condemned the law that forced Pastor Enoch Adeboye, former General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, into stepping aside as head of the church in Nigeria.
The National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, CAN, Kwamkur Samuel, argued that a similar law, which compelled churches in Nigeria to surrender their mission schools, built by missionaries and churches to government, had been introduced in the past.
“From the look of the law, it seems to have been enacted with a good motive to regulate the excesses of not-for-profit organisations in Nigeria and ensure prudent management of offices and resources.
“But in practical terms, we feel strongly that the law is targeted at weakening the church in Nigeria and ensure that the generals of the church, who have the vision of developing the church, are pulled off to make churches and members vulnerable to attacks.
“It is difficult for the church to keep quiet on such laws.
“While, as Christians, we are admonished by the Holy Bible to respect and be obedient to constituted authorities in our nation, we are sure it is in response and respect for this admonition that our highly-esteemed father, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, decided to resign his headship of The Redeemed Christian Church of God.’’
He added, “We will consult widely and study the law further and the future implications in line with our vision and calling as pastors, implications on our followers, and the motive of the law before taking the appropriate measures of clearly stating our opinion for or against the law to the authorities.
“Adeboye is not just a Redeemed Church pastor but a mentor, counsellor and distant pastor to a lot of Christians and non-Christians in Nigeria and the world over. We understand the news will take many by surprise but the fact that he remains the General Overseer (Worldwide) is enough consolation to most of us,”

Adolescent Boy Brutally Beat His Mother to Death Over His Missing Memory Card (PHOTO)
A 17-old boy identified as Emmanuel was arrested on Monday, January 15 and charged with murder following reports that he beat his own mother to death just because he couldn’t find his memory card, and thought it was in her possession.
Reports revealed that Emmanuel asked his mother if she knew where his memory card was, she denied having any knowledge of where the card could be, but Emmanuel didn’t believe her and kept inisisting that she had it.
An argument later ensued between mother and son when she insisted that she didn’t have it or knew where it was. This angered Emmanuel who then attacked his own mother with a pestle.
He hit her on the head repeatedly till she was completely helpless but seeing that his mother was still alive, Emmanuel, without feeling any remorse, went outside, removed a burning firewood from a nearby fire and continuously burned her with it until she died.
Emmanuel was apprehended shortly after the murder and handed over to the police.
