Former Kogi Lawmaker, Dino Melaye has lauded calls to arm citizens following the worsening insecurity and incessant attacks by gunmen in worship centres.
Melaye recalls West Freeway Church of Christ shooting that took place in White Settlement, Texas, United States.
Two people in the congregation were killed before the gunman was fatally shot by Jack Wilson, 71, a volunteer security team member. The attack was live-streamed, as are all services at the church.
Melaye, who represented Kogi West at the Senate between 2015 to 2019, stressed that the worshippers did not wait for Jesus to save them.
“Gunmen attacked church during service in USA, but before you know it, the worshippers fired back and none of these gunmen escaped. They do not wait for Jesus to fight for them,” he tweeted.
