Why Southern Kaduna crisis may not end, by CAN


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said the failure of security agencies to arrest and prosecute culprits of Southern Kaduna crisis is prolonging the fight. The body advised the government to wake up to its responsibilities. CAN President Rev Samson Ayokunle spoke at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja. His words: “We should organise prayers again and if possible, with fasting, to seek the intervention of God so that this senseless crisis might stop. I think what has encouraged this type of carnage in Southern Kaduna is the inability of the law enforcement agents to apprehend the criminals responsible for it, and if they were apprehended at all, they were not conclusively prosecuted. “We have had these days more often than not, the law enforcement agents saying the criminals are “unknown gunmen”. Whose duty is it to know them? Is it not the law enforcement agents?” Ayokunle said CAN plans to provide relief materials for victims of the carnage in Southern Kaduna and the Agatu community in Benue State. A statement by Ayokunle’s media aide, Bayo Oludeji, said: “We are planning to visit Southern Kaduna to distribute relief materials to victims of the massacre. We planned to do this earlier but we couldn’t because we received security report that it was not safe to do so. We would equally visit the Agatu community in Benue State to distribute relief materials. “I urge all of us to pray for Muhammadu Buhari. It is our spiritual and legitimate duty as a people of God. We should also pray for the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, that God guide him aright.” http://thenationonlineng.net/southern-kaduna-crisis-may-not-end-can-2/
