Kaduna – The District Head of Hayin Taro- Taro of Rigasa, Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna,Malam Ibrahim Isah on Tuesday said the 24-hour curfew imposed by the state government would make residents reflect on the desirability of peace.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Isah said that the inconveniences associated with the curfew had made people to realize the importance of living in peace with one another as most of them could not go about their normal businesses.
“If there was peace, curfew wouldn’t have been imposed and everyone would have been going about his or her normal business with nothing to fear, but unfortunately, some people prefer to distort the peace we are enjoying.
” I believe that people have now learnt some lessons as most of us are struggling for what to eat,” he said.
The traditional leader called on the followers of the two main religions, Islam and Christianity, to embrace peace and shun violence, adding that no religion preaches violence.
Isah also urged the youth to be tolerant with one another and report security related threat to the appropriate authorities, rather than taking the laws into their hands.
