Abuja (Sundiata Post) — The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Friday, said the failure of the security agencies to arrest and bring to book those responsible for the killings in the Southern Kaduna is the reason why the crisis remains endless, and charges them to wake up to their responsibilities.
Despite the curfew and the presence of the Police and other security agencies in the volatile zone, the killings remain unabated and CAN called on its members to continue praying for the permanent restoration of peace in the area.
Speaking at the just concluded meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Christian umbrella body held in Abuja, the CAN President, Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, could not hide his disappointment in the unending killings and the treatment of those responsible with kid gloves.
“All of us should organise prayers again and if possible with fasting to seek the intervention of God so that this senseless destruction of human beings 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 these killings 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 that the criminals are ‘unknown gun men.’ Whose duty is it to know them? It is not the law enforcement agents?” he said.
