The Coalition of Christian Groups For Good Governance (COCGOG) has condemned what it called the deliberate provocation of a section of the country and grand design to eliminate the justice system in the country and conclude the islamisation of Nigeria.
Rev. Daniel Kadzai, COCGOG president in a statement on Sunday, said it was shocking that despite the claim by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that President Muhammadu Buhari was not aware of the “coup” against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, he failed to align with his senior learned colleagues.
He said from the body language of VP Osinbajo and other Christians in the All Progressives Congress (APC) government, it is obvious that they are either under threat or under hypnotic powers in Aso Rock.
The statement added: “We see the suspension of Justice Onnoghen as the height of the plot to hijack the three tiers of government for the benefit of Islam. This is a declaration of war on Christians and Christianity.
“Hence, it is a criminal indictment on Christians in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, as we see them as both incompetent and untrustworthy.
“The scars of the Nigerian Civil War (1967 – 1970) are still fresh on our body and psyche; we cannot afford another one. We hereby warn that President Buhari should return the CJN to his office because the wounded lions are ready to avenge their massacre.
“No single ethnic group or religion has monopoly of violence. We hereby call on all Christians nationwide to be at alert and await further directives.
“A word is enough for the wise! We also use this opportunity to call on the international community to prevail on Buhari to toe the part of honour and reverse the ambiguous adventure. “
