In a statement on Friday, CAN prayed that “vampires in religious garments will not push the country to a religious war.”
CAN in a statement by its General Secretary, Joseph Daramola the murder of Deborah stands condemned.
CAN acknowledged the swift reaction of the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar.
“It is our expectation that the State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, would ensure that the matter is not swept under the carpet, as it was before,” it said.
“We recall the provocative and demeaning advertisement of the Sterling Bank where the bank compared the Resurrection of Jesus Christ to “Agege bread”.
“Up till now, nobody was attacked and even the CAN leadership has accepted the apology tendered by its Chief Executive, Abubakar Suleiman.”
