The general secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Musa Asake, is dead.
He died in the course of a brief illness–on Friday morning in Abuja.
Two weeks ago, Asake led a protest called by CAN against the killing of Christians by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Asabe was an indigene of Southern Kaduna.
He is a known critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
