Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has been held responsible for the killings of Christians in kaduna by the Christian Association of Nigeria.
The Secretary of CAN in the region, Dr. Joseph Aka Ajujungwa,
and the Chairman of CAN in the South-East, Most. Rev. Prof. David Eberechukwu, made these statements expressing their dissatisfaction to the present situation.
“The nonsensical killings in the Southern Kaduna cannot be justified in whatever way and as such the CAN is holding Governor El-Rufai responsible for the murderous activities of Fulani herdsmen in the area.
“How can the Chief security officer of the State watch Christians die in their number even at a time he placed curfew on them? This is why we hold him responsible for the killings.
“It is even more surprising that at this point when we should be talking of solutions, some Muslim groups are busy attacking Christian leaders and calling for their arrest merely because they spoke out against these barbaric killings.
“The Governors in the Southern region made concerted efforts, which saw to the end of the violent activities of these herdsmen but in the case of Kaduna State, El-Rufai’s body language is questionable”, they noted.
“We want to make it clear that no matter the level of intimidation, the CAN would not fold its hands and watch this atrocity continue. We won’t be coerced into keeping quiet while our members are being mowed down in thousands.
“We, therefore, call on Christians and the good people of Nigeria to be vigilant and watchful so that these herdsmen will not take them unawares any longer.”
The Church will no more relent!
