The Prayer Force Network (PFN) said the explosion that rocked Sabon Gari area of Kano State was an attempt to massacre Christians.
According to the Prayer Force, anyone who knows Kano city, will agree that Sabon Gari is a Christian dominated area of the town.
“After the gruesome murder of Deborah, there were tensions in many northern states including Kano. The explosion in Sabon Gari was an attempt to bomb Christians in the area because the commissioner for information, Kano state, Malam Muhammad Garba said the cause was unknown but the commissioner of police, Kano state command was saying a different thing,” a statement issued by the prayer force network leader, John Pofi said.
“By their contradictory statements, it means something is fishy and the state government is aware and wants to cover up.
“Security agencies should hasten up the process of investigations and let the public know before it is too late.
“The gruesome murder of Deborah in Sokoto has generated so much tensions in northern states of Nigeria that is why we smell a fish in this purported gas explosion because we know what the Muslims extremist are up to when it comes to issue of religion, they will always want to fight for “their God.”
“I am not raising an unnecessary alarm because history has shown that if there is any case of blasphemy in Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other countries of the world, Nigerian Muslims extremists will always want to take laws into their own hands,” Pofi added.
According to him, the federal government should step up security in all the northern states to protect christians before it is too late.
“Christians will no longer take any form of barbarism in the name of religion, enough is enough. All northern governors must also step up security to ensure the safety of all before it is too late,” the statement added.
