The Chancellor, Diocese of Lagos Anglican Communion, Justice Adesola Oguntade yesterday said from the time has come for Christians to be vigilant and take necessary precautions to prevent further attack by the Boko Haram sect.
He urged Christians never to hesitate reporting suspicious movements to the police.
He spoke at the Cathedral Church of St. Jude (CSJ), Ebute Meta, during the 2nd CSJ Annual Lecture on The Church and Society.
Justice Oguntade, who was represented by the Registrar, Lagos Mainland Diocese, Lady Chinkwe Ochaga, urged Christians to assist the police by giving them necessary information which may be useful in preventing these attacks.
He said Christians should continue to pray that God will convert the terrorists. There is no need to resort to violence in the belief that we can ward off the attackers, rather we should see ourselves as one big family and continue to pray for peace to rein.
He recalled the words of Charlotte Elliot in Hymn: 308 “Christians, seek not repose: Hear thy Guardian angel say; thou art in the midst of foes! What and pray!”
