The Fellowship of Churches of Christ in Nigeria (TEKAN) has condemned what it called the wanton killings of innocent citizens and the destruction of properties by Boko Haram, and says the governors of states in the North East should be held responsible.
Rising from its 57th Annual General Assembly weekend, TEKAN recalled with dismay the takeover of Christian schools in the North in the 1970s which rendered such schools worthless as educational outfits and said that although it commended the effort of the Federal Government to build schools for the Almajiris, the church body wanted same to be done for Christians to cater for the teeming Christian youths who are not in schools.
