The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has ordered all churches in the country and Christian stakeholders to organize a nationwide peaceful protest against the horrific murder of Deborah Yakubu by a mob of young Muslims in the state of Sokoto for alleged blasphemy.
The CAN made the call via a circular issued on Saturday by the secretary general, Joseph Daramola, and obtained by SaharaReporters.

The circular titled “A REQUEST FOR NATIONWIDE PEACEFUL PROTESTS, A CALL FOR JUSTICE FOR DEBORAH YAKUBU” reads: “I was directed by the President of the CAN, His Eminence. Rev. Dr. Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, to ask all church leaders, through your various churches, to organize a PEACEFUL PROTEST in honor of one of our daughters, DEBORAH YAKUBU, who was horribly murdered on Thursday May 12, 2022 at Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto in Sokoto State by Islamic extremists.
“The protest will be held on May 22, 2022 in the afternoon at 3 p.m. at all Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) secretariats nationwide and not in the streets to avoid further loss of Those who do not have a CAN secretariat can use any church with large premises.
“We must hold signs with a succinct message like ‘WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR DEBORAH’, ‘NO MORE KILLING IN THE NAME OF GOD’, ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’ ‘DEBORAH’S KILLERS MUST BE PROSECUTED’, ‘WE CONDEMN THE RELIGIOUS MURDERS”, “WE SAY NO TO ISLAMIC EXTREMES”.
“We urge those who have the means to use traditional media and social media and others can only use social media to give him wide coverage in others to raise awareness around the world. We also call on Nigerian Christians in the Diaspora to join us using our embassies all over the world.
