Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has described the men who carried out the attack at Nyanya Motor Park on Monday  as pigs, whose corpses ought to be fed to pigs once they die.

As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators are not human beings and in my own opinion, when they finally die their corpses should be given to pigs because they are on the same level with pigs. How do you do this kind of thing to human beings? So definitely, they cannot be humans. It is so unfortunate. To make it worse, there are people who are sponsoring them. As the judgment of God comes upon them, the judgment will also come on those who are sponsoring them. Anybody who has given N1 to these people, whether they are local people or foreign financiers, the same judgment will come upon them and their children.” They will not escape it. So those are my words.” - Oritsejafor said in a statement released on Monday
