OMG:CAN condemns siege on Saraki, Ekweremadu’s residences

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reacted to Tuesday’s siege on the residences of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.


In a statement, the association described the action of the security operatives as ”a siege against Nigeria’s democracy”.

The statement signed by the media assistant to the CAN President, Adebayo Oladeji, warned President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigeria Police to desist from threatening Nigeria’s democracy.

“We express grave concerns over the poor handling of police’s invitation to the Senate President, Saraki, over the infamous Offa robbery saga that led to the death of no fewer than 30 people. And the alleged plan by the EFCC to arrest Ekweremadu over alleged money laundry.

”The Christian umbrella body condemns in strong terms the way and manner the police were deployed in subjecting the leadership of the National Assembly to needless embarrassment and harassment. The ongoing action of the police is a siege against democracy.
