Benue attacks: Church of Satan attacks Buhari over death of Rev. Fathers, others

US-based Church of Satan has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari for describing the recent killing by Fulani herdsmen as Satanic.

DAILY POST reported that Rev Fathers Gor Joseph, Felix and other worshippers were on Tuesday murdered, after suspected herdsmen attacked their village.

Reacting to the killings Buhari said on twitter, “I extend my sincere condolences to the Govt and people of Benue State, the Mbalom community, and especially the Bishop, priests and members of the St Ignatius’ Catholic Church, whose premises was the unfortunate venue of the heinous killings of worshippers and two priests by gunmen.

“This latest assault on innocent persons is particularly despicable. Violating a place of worship, killing priests and worshippers is not only vile, evil and satanic, it is clearly calculated to stoke up religious conflict and plunge our communities into endless bloodletting.”

However, the Church of Satan, which has its head quarters in US, described the Nigerian President as ignorant for using the term “Satanic” in describing the killing.

They took to their verified official twitter handle to lambast Buhari for allowing the killings due to his incompetence.

They wrote, “President Buhari is ignorant. Infighting between two different Abrahamic religions is just that, theists killing theists.

“It has nothing to do with us or Satanism – a life cherishing atheistic religion.”
