Why Should People Be Killed Cheaply Without Security Resistance? - CAN Reacts

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed disappointment and shock at the spate of killings in three local government areas of Plateau State by herdsmen.

A statement by the Special Assistant, (Media & Communication) to the CAN President, Mr. Adebayo Oladeji said: “CAN is at a loss how scores of people can be killed without any form of resistance by soldiers deployed to contain the security challenge. How could dare devil criminals assault communities without resistance by security agencies to stop these killings. Are these herdsmen in bed with soldiers to unleash mayhem on these peaceful communities?

“Considering the level of human carnage of these attacks, we once again call on government not to rest on its oars until these criminals are brought to book as promised.

“CAN and relations of victims of these attacks need more than assurances and promises of tracking down these criminals by the President. Much as these assurances are needed; they have become irrelevant in the face of incessant attacks that have claimed the lives of thousands of Christians.”
