“In view of the foregoing, I urge you all to do the protest of placard carrying within the premises of your local churches or your CAN secretariat,” the statement reads.
“However, where it is unsafe to do the protest in the premises of your church or CAN secretariat, you may carry the placards inside your church and pray for justice for Deborah [Emmanuel] who was wickedly and extra-judicially slain.
“Pray as well for a change of heart for the wicked who find it convenient for them to kill their fellow human beings under religious guise.
“In all, let the television cover your in-house protest and equally use the social media for the entire world to see.”
