The Pentecontal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has blamed security agencies for
the influx of Almajirai into the Southern part of the country.
In a statement issued by the National Vice President (South-East) of the PFN, Dr. Cosmas Ilechukwu, and made available to journalists in Enugu, the organization said it was strange and inexcusable that “these men and women are flooding into the South-East despite the nationwide lockdown and ban on interstate travel.
“To this end, we are calling on the South-East governors to work the talk by putting up stern measures to ensure the protection of the region’s boundaries. The current situation should not be left unchecked as it poses grave danger to this zone.”
Ilechukwu said apart from transporting and spreading coronavirus pandemic, “Boko Haram members can also take advantage of this porosity of our boundaries to wreak havoc.
“The security agencies owe the people an explanation on how these people beat checkpoints from their base to the East. This calls for a total overhaul of the agencies as they appear to be accomplices to this drift.”
He said the Church must, however, rise to the occasion with prayers, the only way out of the global confusion. “We know that God will heal the land soonest,” he stressed
