The two scenarios have come to the attention of the honourable 1 major, who has since expressed shock at learning of the persecution of people involved in both.
In Nigeria, it is reported that the police are firing live bullets at civilians and killing them in dozens without remorse or mercy.

In a media statement released from his office on Wednesday, the ‘charismatic’ man of God says Christians are a family and when their fellows are being persecuted or killed in a carnage, it is time to show solidarity.
“We are family in Christ. Its time we join efforts in prayers for our friends and families in Nigeria and Major 1 prophet Shepherd Bushiri and our mother Mary,” reads the statement in part.
