- The General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic (CAC) Worldwide, Prophet S. K. Abiara, has told Nigerians to ignore prophets and prophesies of doom about the country’s fortunes in 2017.

  16. And anyone who thinks the war in KD is not religious is living in a fool's Paradise.
    How can a 24 hour curfew be imposed and the obedient villagers be attacked by the Fulani's? Is the curfew for a particular set of people? Or did the Fulani's fly into the villages?
    All I know is that God is watching and He will rise with judgement...
