“When I had the opportunity to listen to the recorded speech of the CoS on Monday, as a custodian of the Christian beliefs and rites in Okehi LG, I couldn’t hold it but to make our views known through the medium I could lay my hands on at the time. adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I concluded by asking for his public apology.

“I wish to through the same medium hail his humility and level-headedness with which he tendered apology through the same radio he earlier used. As Christians told to follow peace with all men, I wish to appeal to the Christian community of Okehi LG, to accept his apology, forgive and forget.

“I declare the situation as ‘no winner, no vanquished‘ affair. All write-ups on this issue should also be stopped forthwith.
