The Church of Satan has blasted President Buhari over a statement he made concerning the killing of two Catholic priests and other Church members during worship in Benue. Speaking about the attack, the president labelled it as evil and satanic act as he vowed to hunt down the assailants and ensure that they pay for the sacrilege committed.
“This latest assault on innocent persons is particularly despicable. Violating a place of worship, killing priests and worshippers is not only vile, evil and satanic, it is clearly calculated to stoke up religious conflict and plunge our communities into endless bloodletting,” the President said.
However, the statement from president Buhari didn’t sit well the Church of Satan founded by Anton Szandor Lavey. It took to its Twitter page in response to the statement by stating that the president is ignorant to have blamed the attack on Satan.
”President Buhari is ignorant. Infighting between two different Abrahamic religions is just that, theists killing theists. It has nothing to do with us or Satanism – a life cherishing atheistic religion. Shame on the media for furthering this superstitious nonsense”.
