After a meeting to discuss the recent bombings in the north of the
country, The south-eastern zone branch of the Christian Association of
Nigeria (CAN) has said that that the terrorist sect, Boko Haram has
plans to leave its home territory and create instability in the
south-east of the country.
According to a report by the Vanguard, the CAN alleges the jihadists aim to use the much-beloved snack suya to poison the population, and warned people to be careful when purchasing the grilled beef street food.
The chairman of CAN in the zone and Anglican Bishop of Enugu Diocese,
Bishop Emmanuel Chukwuma, claimed to have documents showing the exact
plans of the Islamist sect and details about the groups alleged
During the briefing he said: “We have information and documents to show that this is a Jihad being
sponsored and we have our documents to show where they have dispatched
2,000 people to prepare for Jihad to South East, 2,500 to South-South
and about 2,000 to South West.
The names of those who are sponsoring this are in our hand now. So,
it is a form of Jihad to make sure that Nigeria is frustrated and
islamized and we are saying we are going to resist it, we are
prepared to resist and they will not succeed. We have our information
because there is already a Boko Haramist that was converted and has
leaked most of these secrets to us and we have our document and
information. So at the appropriate time we shall strike and we are
waiting for them.”
“We are warning our people to be careful of suya because we have now
heard that they will start poisoning people through suya. They know the
suya they give themselves in the North and suya they give to the people
in the South. So people should be careful of suya.
That is part of the information available to us now. There is a
powder that is now being imported which they will spread on suya and
after two weeks it will start eating your liver and other organs. We
have gotten that information also.
The press should let the people know because when people start dying
because of eating of suya don’t say I did not say as Bishop Chukwuma. I
am telling you this because we have our information. As Sultan of
Sokoto told our youths that he has a way of collecting information,
Bishop Chukwuma also has a way of collecting information from the
Let the Sultan hear that because he told our youths the other day
that everything that is happening, he has a way of obtaining
information, I too have a way of collecting my information and we are
ready to match force with force right now.”
