With controversy over the proposed establishment of Ruga settlement for Fulani herdsmen in 14 pilot states and in any other state willing to embrace the programme, the immediate past State Security Adviser (South) to Gov Ben Ayade, Mr Ani Esin, has decried the inability of Christian leaders to speak up in the face of what he sees as imminent invasion.
Speaking through his social media, Facebook, platform, Esin expressed surprise that instead of Christians protesting against the proposed establishment of Ruga settlements, they were busy staging protest over a rape saga allegedly involving COZA Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and Timi Dakolo’s wife.
Describing the issue as a ‘tempest,’ Esin said: “What is this rape matter that has diverted Christians from focusing on the imminent tempest that’s about to hit Christendom in such a velocity that’s never been seen before in Africa?
“Whether you are for or against the pastor or the victims in the current social media campaign, you are simply part of the clouds the enemy is using to hinder the view of the church against an advancing very formidable furious enemy in form of Ruga.
“I hope the church and the civil rights activist will march when the horsemen arrive the east, south and west to rape our mothers, wives, daughters in the market square at noon.
“I hope they will march when we no longer have rights and become slaves in our land; when Church auditoriums no longer host worshippers but become monument for tourist attractions; when our children no longer bear our names.
“I hope those Christians will stage protest march when our daughters will be forcefully given out in marriage at the age of 8; when it will be crime not to keep beards. I hope they will march when we can no longer admire the beauty/hair in our women who would’ve been veiled or masked.
“Let the church rather prepare for the discomforting times to come. Time for our leaders, both political and religious, to speak out against this monster threatening our corporate exist is now.”
