Dr Uche

By Roundoffnews.

The prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence Dr Samuel Kanu Uche has called on Nigerians to rise up and defend themselves against the attack of killer herdsmen and bandits in the country.

The prelate who spoke on Saturday in Egbe Ekiti during the dedication of a church said it was time for Nigerians particularly those in the south to use whatever means that they have to shield their lives, families and territory.

Use stick, Use Iron, bottle, Even your teeth to fight back, since government is not ready to defend you, defend yourselves he said.

No life is special and superior to others, there is no rule that says the blood of a bandit or killer herdsman cannot be spilled like they have been doing to others.

Nigeria belong to all of us and until we fight back, the dare devil killers would continue to ruin us and make life unbearable he said.

The prelate condemned the gruesome murder of the daughter of the revered leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, Mrs Funke Olakunrin and called on government to wake up to its responsibility of protecting the citizenry.

His Eminence Dr Uche also appealed to appropriate authorities in the south not to release their land for the suspended cattle colony known as RUGA.

According to the prelate, there is an agenda towards the suspended project which all and Sunday. must stand against.

He however kicked against the proposed legalization of same sex marriage in the Methodist British churches describing same sex as nonsense, dirty, animalistic and unacceptable in the African culture.

Also the former Deputy Governor of the Ekiti State, Professor Kolapo Olusola stressed the need for government to tackle the issue of security with utmost sincerity and without ethnic prejudice.

He said the current situation in the country called for urgent attention.
