Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital has attracted condemnations from Christian leaders both within and outside Nigeria.
The list of reactions has continued to swell with President of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle John Suleman voicing out against the incident.
Apostle Suleman, reacting to the attack through his verified Twitter account, spoke against the Kenyan bombings in the name of religion.
The outspoken cleric wrote: “I condemn the bombing in Kenya, no religion teaches violence or murder.
“Nobody should claim to be worshipping God whilst taking human lives? You kill because you are wicked not because any holy book supports it,” the apostle stated.
In the same vain, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby in a post on his verified Twitter page, condemned the attack.
The Archbishop stated: “Our hearts go out this evening to those caught up in the Nairobi attack. We pray for victims and for families grieving or waiting for news. We thank God for the security forces.
“We pray for peace and calm to reign. May all in Kenya know the love and comfort of Jesus Christ,” he concluded.
