    For an abomination of this nature to occur where orphans were created and entire lineages wiped out in one second, without Divine intervention, should tell us who are alive that THERE IS EVIL IN THE LAND. THERE IS TOO MUCH BLOODSHED AND DIABOLIC WICKEDNESS IN THIS LAND AND GOD MAY HAVE TURNED AWAY. It is time to speak out; it is time to repent; it is time to seek the face of God again in penitence, with ash on our heads; it is time to stop wickedness to ourselves; it is time for government to tell the people the truth. Above all it is time to stop shedding innocent blood – for whatever reasons – witchcraft, rituals, boko haram, politics, etc. IF NOT MORE HORROR IS ON THE WAY BECAUSE THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT INCLUDING THAT OF THESE VICTIMS ARE CRYING OUT AGAINST US.
