The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has condemned in totality the recent bloodbath across the country carried out by armed men and suspected fulani herdsmen, and urged President Muhammadu Buhari and his Service chiefs to wake up to their responsibilities by ending the rising spate of killings in many communities across the nation
CAN President, Samson Ayokunle, in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media and Communications, Adebayo Oladeji, stated that it is unfortunate that between Christmas and today, scores of innocent Christians have been killed across the nation as if all our security agencies are on holiday. These incessant killings are unacceptable, ungodly, wicked and reprehensible, adding that the last two years in Nigeria has recorded unprecedented killings by the criminal Fulani herdsmen and the Boko Haram terrorists with other religious extremists.
The statement maintained, “Christian Association of Nigeria calls on President Buhari and his security chiefs to wake up to their responsibilities and stop paying lips service to the security of lives and property. Nowhere is safe and secured in Nigeria despite the huge amount of money being spent on defence”.
“And for Abubakar Shekau to be claiming responsible for these killings is a dirty slap on the government that claims victory over terrorism. We wonder what the National Security Council does at its meetings”, CAN stressed.
