Congress of Northern Nigeria Christian (CNNC) has expressed dissatisfaction over the gruesome murder of traditional rulers in Kaduna State, urging the Federal Government to bring the culprits to justice.
The body of all Christians in the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) said: “CNNC is clearly saddened by the gruesome murder of the Agom Adara, HRH Maiwada Galadima; the Etum Numana, Mallam Gambo Makama; and his expectant wife in January 1 this very year.”
“This reprehensible act that should have no place in today’s Nigeria has not only taken root in northern Nigeria, but appears to be a recurring decimal with some ease within the communities of our members.
“We are seriously pained at the disgraceful security situation in Kaduna that has claimed over 100 lives and destroyed unquantifiable properties this October.
“The situation has exacerbated by the lack of unbiased leadership in the state, which has further alienated the citizens along religious fault lines.
“Apprehension has taken hold of the entire Kaduna. CNNC wishes to express her trepidations over the probable spill-over effect into other states, and so calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to quickly set up a high-powered body to investigate these shameful acts and find lasting peace.”
The state government relaxed the curfew declared in the metropolis, in order to boost business activities, while the curfew earlier imposed on Kachia, the council of the Agom Adara chiefdom, remains 6pm to 5am.
