On the Third Day of January 2018, I went to see my Mother’s Aunty who is a Christian. In the living room with his husband when Tvc broadcasted that Islamic worshippers attacked in Kwara and Christian worshippers coming from cross over night.
I watched keenly like a television addict trying all my brain compartment focused on the incidence.
When the correspondent showed a Muslim cleric explain how the evil elements were attacking Muslims and then threw tear gas severally that Caused stampede, it glided to the correspondent interviewing a Christian man saying a female Muslim on hijab was to be raped. She luckily fled to a security attached to nearby church who took her in for refuge. The evil element chased her, demanded for her but all to no avail. They started destroying church properties as a form of revenge and it was also reported that that some female Christian were raped in that process.
The man, my mother’s aunty husband said, “they are armed robbers “. You know why? It is Because it was difficult for him to claim they are Muslims since Muslim girl was about to be raped and Muslims attacked in a nearby school (I think they congregated in school) where they congragated.
I asked my self a startling question;
WHAT IF IT WAS ONLY CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND CHRISTIANS THAT WERE ATTACKED?
what will the reaction be like?
May be The attackers will be Muslims. Yes, I am sure!
What followed was a news report that Christians in port Harcourt Gunned down from cross over night.
Immediately, the man’s response was “It is Bokoharam “.
Called out to his daughter and said; Bokoharam, you know we were told they have spread all over Nigeria. So Bokoharam just killed some Christians.
I wondered bitterly, of course, blaming Bokoharam means The generality of muslims are responsible and they have to be blamed. I sobbed inside me!
WHEN WILL NIGERIA CHRISTIANS EVER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF CRIMES COMMITTED IN THE NAME OF CHRISTIANITY OR BY CHRISTIANS?
without even turning to accuse and blame Muslims?
I wondered in bitterness and disbelief . Few minutes later, it was reported that people have been losing their lives in Omoku (the killings didn’t start on cross over night) until recently. But it bounced back to its social disorder during cross over night.
Later that day till today, we got information that the killings in port Harcourt was Carried out by a Christian who has been on security agent wanted List.
Sadly speaking, this is how many Christians now think; Any crime commited In Christian dominated areas or Muslim dominated areas, it must be a Muslim trying to kill christians . It becomes worse when those who suffer the loss are Christians not Muslims, i .e, Omoku killings in river state.
So because if this, I have provided pictorial evidences of Christians who commit crimes and Christians who commit crimes in the name of christianity just like Boko Haram (in the name of Islam).
So I ask; when will CHRISTIANS ever take responsibility of crimes committed by Christians or with the name of christianity?
Some have dates with its snapshot but we also provide references for all those without dates.
