The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC), Pastor Tunde Bakare has condemned the killings that took place on Tuesday at the Lekki Tollgate and around the country.
In a statement, he said these grave incidents have no place in our country and set an unfortunate precedent that must not be repeated.
“I strongly condemn the killings that took place yesterday at the Lekki Tollgate and around the country. These grave incidents have no place in our country and set an unfortunate precedent that must not be repeated. Every instance of violence against the people of Nigeria must be thoroughly investigated by the authorities and the culprits must face the full weight of the law.
“My deepest sympathy goes out to the families that woke up this morning with tears of mourning; may God truly comfort their hearts and grant them strength and fortitude to go through this dark moment.
“Neither the savage and unlawful killings of our children nor the murder of police officers can put a lasting stop to our multi-faceted challenges. Two wrongs don’t make a right, and this moment in our history requires great wisdom and great restraint.
“I believe in a Nigeria that identifies, develops and deploys the strength, creativity, intellect and potential of our youth, and we must remain committed to the emergence of that Nigeria against all odds. May the souls of our dearly departed rest in peace. Amen,” the statement reads.
