  1. Okay, we hear. But Pastor and is members should deal with it. We had similar case some 2 weeks ago and barely no one gave a thought about it. It was normal to destroy Ogun Shrine. Cool. This is reprisal attack perhaps.

    If this Alfa truly innocent, fine. If he is not, I dont support his attitude because it goes against Shari’a and Islamic etiquette.

    Lesson to learn from this is there is no blaming him at least from christians. They do not have the right to blame Alfa christians are guilty pretty much of the same.

    But me, from Islamic point of view, Alfa is wrong if he is not innocent.

  2. Bailed??? Haaaaba! This country is not abide in law any more, nonsense have missed togeda with rubbish. no judgement for the criminal,if they can afford the bail charge. Lobatan

    • So Alfa is wrong and should not be granted bail even when the law permits but the pastor that did the similar thing is right and should be free? Nigerians i hail ooo! on the pastor case you said.. ‘ One with God is Majority. May God be with you pastor’; am guessing your are a ‘Christian’ so that means it is ok to trample all over others if they don’t follow your religion. This is the mind set of the fundamentalist and terrorist which is mainly fanaticism. I shudder at times to see how deluded some people are. you think by engaging in acts that undermine others way of life you will have peace and security? no you won’t and cant! because the naturals instinct of man is to defend their existence by all means.We are just incubating anarchy, soon it will hatch and am sure no one will enjoy their life when it is unleashed. So it is in our best interest to live in peace and respect others ways of life. if the law is applied to everyone without favor then people will have recourse to the law to settle any issue without need of breaching the peace of the community. it the corrupt mentality that has pervaded our consciousness that makes people always act in defiance of the law. My brother is the DPO or my uncle is a senator;i am a christian my pastor knows the the IG. please stop being myopic look at the bigger picture! no nation can thrive without law and order.The adage..

      ‘what is good for the goose is good for the gander’

      #live and let live.

  3. Dont really know why Nigerian Christian has become so soft. Its so annoying how we have folded our hands and allowed all these uncircumcised ishmaelites unbelivers to always have their way with us.

    The gentility of Christians now is gradually becoming cowardise and is so annoying indeed. Te Isrealites are not so frighten.

    Its high time we understood that the only language that these uncircumcised philistines called muslims understood is Voilence. Why not give it to them? Play cool with them and they‘ll ride you like a horse.

    I believe that even God Himself is disappointed in Christians now.

    I take a stroll…

  4. @AMANDA AND TEE, WHEN YOU WANT to draw a parallel, make sure that it is actually parallel. In the case you referred to, did the pastor spoil anything in the shrine? What I read was that he only carried certain items outside, and waited. Although I may not support his method, it doesn’t have parity with this case. He did not “destroy” anything, unlike this one you sympathize with.

    I HAVE always known it that their is much anger in Moslem camps whenever their own converts to Christianity, whereas it is not so with Christians. We rather feel pity for the Christian who converts to Islam because such a Christian had seen LIFE and chosen DEATH! But moslems draw their swords when theirs convert to Christianity. Religion of peace!

    • @Metu Nyetu. Am baffle at your rationale, what are you implying? What is the main difference between the two alleged crimes? Both involved trespass and damage to property and breach of peace. both are crimes against the state and does not require the consent of the accused for the police instigate proceedings against the them. You state that i sympathize with the Alfa; that is ludicrous! i will never side with evil and disruption of peace and livelihood no matter from where. i am believer in rule of law and want the best for my country.This has been my stance over the years. An objective person who is conversant with my submission on this forum will attest to this and it is a fact. i don’t play to the gallery. I am my own person don’t need validation. The fact of the matter is that if we continue to do favoritism with the application of law then citizen will not rely on the judicial system to resolve issue but resort to violence as been demonstrated on various occasions. You purport to be a ‘Christian’ and yet you don’t pursue the tenets of Christianity; which is mainly love and peace. All you utterances/submissions is mainly grandstanding with no substance; instead of looking for peace you continue to agitate for violence i wonder where that we lead us as a nation. If you had a chance try and seek out those that have just returned from war torn countries eg Libya maybe it might help you to imagine what life will be like if there is no peace. Both 2 main religions have cause so much damage to the country,most so called adherents or followers are generally unpatriotic and traitors they engage in acts that that impoverish our nation through looting and corruption and yet purport to whiter than snow.The cat is now out of the bag with the help of technology vis a vis internet; people are beginning to come out of their slumber.

      “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”
      M Ghandi

  5. Hello people! Please, let us desist from fanning the embers of religious sentiments. Okay?
    Any one, whether Christian or Muslim, that breaks the law should be prosecuted and punished if found guilty.
    My pain is that there is no ‘Rule of Law’ in this country. God help Nigeria.

  6. If it were the christians that lunch such an attak on a mosque,Nigeria 4 don trun upside down.thank God almighty for bringing me into a christian home

  7. @TEE, WHEREVER DID you deduce that I support violence? Have I not on many occasions cautioned people here on how they reacted to Islam, especially when some issues had nothing to do with religion? Or am I to call your response an allusion to my support for the cause of Biafra? If that be the case, then I have no regrets whatsoever!

    I SHALL refrain from arguing with you for saying that my submissions are without substance. Maybe you know better and I did not know all this while. Your comments may, in your own estimate, have what you call substance. But may I remind you that chaff, dirt, garbage, dross and the likes, all are genuine substances.

  8. Well said #D_Hunter/Metu_Nyetu.
    Just cos of d single mistake Sarah did by sending in her maid to go sleep with Abraham, that’s y we have all these problems called muslims. I don’t have much to say on post like this cos God will someday put a stop whether they like it or not.
