Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has raised the alarm over silent and unreported killings of Christians in the northern part of the country, according to As violence against Christians by the Islamist group Boko Haram continues to escalate, Oritsejafor called on CAN leaders across the nation to organize times of prayers and fasting, adding that it was imperative for Christians to be security-conscious at all times. Oritsejafor said a pastor in Maiduguri had contacted him complaining that the "killing is going on from door to door, shop to shop, church to church. ... But these things are no longer heard on television. Nobody talks about it. It is only when police station is burnt or bomb explosion that catches people's attention." Oritsejafor declared June 16 as a special day of prayer and fasting for Nigeria.
