Breaking: CAN General Secretary, Musa Asake, is Dead

The General Secretary, Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Musa Asake, is dead.

A fierce critic of the Muhammadu Buhari-led government, Asake died on Friday morning in Abuja after going down with a brief illness.

His shocking death comes almost a fortnight after he led a nationwide protest called by CAN against the killing of Christians by suspected Fulani herdsmen in most parts of the north and middle-belt region.

His brother and former member of the House of Representatives, Jonathan Asake, confirmed his passing, saying it came as a shock as he was with him only the day before (Thursday).

“Yes, he died this morning. We are right now in the mortuary. I was with him yesterday (Thursday) in his house,” he said.

An indigene of Southern Kaduna, Pastor Asake has been vocal in the defence of Christianity in Nigeria following a spike in the killing of Christians and attacks of churches by various armed groups.

CAN has yet to issue a statement on the pastor’s demise.
