Illegal detention: CAN writes DSS, demands apology

ABUJA— Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, yesterday, demanded that the Department of State Services, DSS, tendered a written apology to four members, Board of Trustees of CAN Trustfund who were detained on the orders of its director-general.

Director of Legal and Public Affairs in CAN, Kwamkur Samuel, in a protest letter to the Director-General of DSS, obtained by journalists, in Abuja, reiterated the body’s commitment to dialogue on any issue for peace to reign in the country. Kwamkur said DSS should be more circumspect in dealing with the Body of Christ in Nigeria, if not for any other reason, but to ensure and promote the confidence of the average Nigerian Christian in the government of the day.

REMEMBER THEM …

In Heb. 13: 3, the Word of God says, “Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”

This picture reminds us of the attack of Islamists on Dogo Nahawa village, Jos in 2010. During the night, 501 Christians living in the village were slaughtered. Till today, no one has been prosecuted for the massacre.
