The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Awka has appealed to the Federal Government to relocate Boko Haram suspects detained at the Ekwulobia Prisons in Anambra to a more secured facility.
The association made the appeal in a communiqué jointly signed by the Chairman, Tim Okpala and Secretary, Moses Ezedebego, issued after its emergency meeting in Awka on Monday.
It noted that bringing the inmates of insurgency constitutes a serious security risk to the lives and property of the people of Ekwulobia.
“The issue of insurgencies which is a globally dread can inflict emotional injuries to the people in a relatively peaceful environment like Anambra.
“Even though, the Federal Government has the power to use its prison facility for inmates in any part of the country, we criticise the act of bringing insurgents to an ordinary prison like Ekwulobia Prison.
“We recommend that if ever such inmates should be quartered, it should be in a well armed military barrack,” the communiqué stated.
The communiqué urged members of the public to remain calm and not panic over the situation while calling for intensified prayers for the security of lives across the country.
It also criticised the recent attacks carried out by the insurgents in Borno, Yobe, Zamfara and Plateau.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
