The Christian United for Israel in Nigeria, has sent words of encouragement to Israel to continue to protect its citizens in the face of any attack.
This development comes after the war in Israel and Hamas has prompted the death of more than 4,000, and the number of injured victims increasing beyond 10,000.
There has been so much concern and reactions from many people and institutions after many causalities were recorded.
Apart from the comments of Pope Francis concerning the war, the Interim National Coordinator, CUFI, Benue State chapter, Evangelist Mati Acka, on Sunday during the Special Solidarity Prayers for Israel in conjunction with the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Makurdi, condemned “the dastard attack” on Israel by Hamas, a week ago.
Acka, who spoke on behalf of the Executive Secretary, CUFI, Nigeria, Reverend Samson Ozovehe, said, “We in Benue stand to encourage and are in support of Israel. We CUFI in Nigeria in conjunction with CAN Benue State chapter and other Christian bodies in Nigeria, and the world over, are outraged by the savage and dastard act unleashed on Israel by Hamas.
“We sympathise with the whole nation of Israel. We declare that the act by Hamas has no justification and must be condemned by people of good conscience across the globe.
“We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the right like any other nation to defend her citizens against violent attacks. Until all of Israel is saved, we stand resolute behind her in constant prayers.”
