Nigerians being killed like chickens says CAN


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in 19 Northern states and Abuja has criticized in strong terms the gruesome murder of innocent travellers by bandits in Sokoto State and attacks on citizens of Nigeria by bandits.

The association lamented that the activities of bandits have further showed that human life was cheaper than that of chickens today in Nigeria.

A statement personally issued by the Vice Chairman, Rev. John Joseph Hayab called on the Federal Government and Governors in the north, especially north west region, to take proactive measures to stop the evil permanently.

CAN asked, “How can people be productive when they are living in fear both at home and anywhere they go?”

The statement observed that security of lives and properties was a serious government business, lamenting, “but what we are seeing today is how some of our leaders are playing politics with a serious matter that has almost destroyed the peace, joy and hope of the citizens.”

CAN appealed to security agencies to stop the unhealthy competition amongst them and work together in unity for the common good of all Nigerians, stressing that the security agencies had all it would take to defeat the bandits.

CAN said that on its part, it would continue to offer its prayers, support and play any role that will help to bring the evil being perpetrated in the society to an end.

CAN Northern States commiserated with families of those who lost their lives and every genuine well wisher and peace lovers.
