Pastor David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministry has urged Nigerians, particularly those in the North to defend themselves against terrorist attacks.
Speaking during a sermon at the church’s headquarters, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, the clergyman urged those in terrorist-sieged areas to buy arms for self-defense.
According to him, until residents begin to defend themselves, there would be no peace in the frequently attacked areas.
He said, “All of you in the North hear me: don’t do that Christianity; you too carry your walking stick. Buy a walking stick and be walking with a walking stick.
“All of you in the North, brothers, and sisters, get a good walking stick so that when you walk, the walking stick can support you.
“All of you in Kaduna hear me: get a good walking stick so that it can support you when you are moving. They are not the only ones who know where to buy a walking sticks.
“If they shoot you to shoot if they fire you fire. Then there will be peace. Defend yourself”.
