Another top pastor asks Christians to defend themselves
Okafor urged Christians to defend themselves because “enough is enough.”
He further appealed to Christian worshipers to henceforth shun beef since the Fulani herdsmen preferred their cattle to human lives.
Some parts of Nigeria are seriously enraged that the herdsmen have continued to launch attacks on communities and farms, killing people with little or nothing being done by those in government to arrest the situation.
An angry Okafor, in a video that has gone viral, warned that killing a Christian henceforth would earn a reprisal because no life is more important than the other.
“People are being killed in a country where there is government and nobody seems to be saying anything; and anybody who says something, they come against that person.
“We are all ready to die for it. When they come with their cow to graze in your farmland, they destroy your farmland and when you talk, they kill you.
“Why? Because to them, their cow is more important than your own life. You are seen as an infidel, an unbeliever,” he said adding that no Fulani herdsman has been arrested for the carnage in Kaduna.
Continuing, he said the fact that Christians are keeping quiet does not mean that they cannot fight back.
Continuing in the video, he said: “By nature and by their prophetic destiny, their hand will be against everyone; that is why they can slaughter human beings and it doesn’t seem like anything to them.
“You watch some barbaric videos, very gory, where they are cutting the head of a human being and laughing when a normal human being cannot even slaughter a chicken.
“If a thief comes to your house to rob you, to r*pe your wife and you have a means of killing the thief, kill him before he kills you.
“We don’t look for people to kill but if they want to kill us we will defend ourselves
“Enough is enough, no Christian must be killed anymore, if you want to kill one Christian, we are going to reply, we will defend ourselves.
“Jesus died for this gospel; we are ready to die too. Since they value their cow more than your life and my life, then stop eating cow. Don’t eat cow meat anymore, you can eat fish, you can eat chicken, you eat goat meat, you can eat bush meat.”
