Oct 12, 2014 – CAC’s Prophet Kayode Abiara Talks Boko Haram & Nigeria’s Future, Says Islam Means Peace
Interviewer: Many Nigerians are worried that Boko Haram has carved out a caliphate out of Nigeria. Are you also worried?
Abiara: Well, the Bible has not left us in the dark. It says in the last days, there will be terrible times. So these are terrible times all over the world. It is not only happening in Nigeria, it is also happening in some other parts of the world. When you watch what is happening on foreign media stations, you will discover that it is not Nigeria alone that is affected by terrorism. Satan has polluted the peace of the world; he is fighting the world, and it has already been recorded in the Bible. When you read the scriptures, you will find out that the Bible says there will be wars, troubles and all sorts of calamities in the end times. It is everywhere. It is the end of the age. People say terrorism is Islamic, but as far as I am concerned, the word ‘Islam’ means peace. I don’t see Muslims as killers or violent people. It is just that Satan has taken over the lives of the terrorists, so it is not about religion. Look at the late former president of this country, Umar Musa Yar’Adua; he was a peaceful man. Again, our present vice-president, Namadi Sambo, is a very gentle and peaceful man. There was a time we went to visit him and he was very polite. He is a gentleman and he is a Muslim. Bola Tinubu is a Muslim too and he is not violent. Governor Raji Fashola too is a Muslim. As for these terrorists, I don’t know where they came from. I think real Muslims must stand and let the world know they are different.
Interviewer: Some people say the political enemies of the government are using terrorism to humiliate the government. Do you believe this too?
Abiara: You know, there are enemies inside the government. Maybe these enemies are using terrorism to attack the government. There must be an inside help. Someone once said he would make governance impossible if he was not elected to power, according to how I read it in the papers. It is very important to find the reason the person said that because what he said has come to pass. That is why it is very important to be cautious when talking. People will remember what you say. Our politicians must be very careful when they campaign. Nigerians are very intelligent; we don’t forget things easily. People record your sins for you.
Interviewer: In the spiritual realm, do you see this as the end of Nigeria?
Abiara: No. God is with Nigeria. Nigeria must not be worried at all. Nigeria will have peace by the grace of God through the prayers of the saints. It is a sign of the end time and we should pray that these people should change their minds. God owns their hearts and he can change them through our prayers. We should all pray for this country to let peace reign and God will answer us.
