Killings: CAN, youths warned against inciting violence



Northern Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev.  Yakubu Pam, has warned against the killing of innocent persons in the Northeast, saying it is capable of causing unrest in the entire northern region.

The CAN chapter in a statement decried the recent killing of  Rev Lawan Andimi, the CAN Chairman of Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State by the insurgents.

Pam said the current abductions and killing of innocent persons and Christians alike in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states if not quickly checked will send wrong signals to the rest of the Christian faithful.

Pam called on President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to double its efforts in tackling the current situation in the North in order to avoid outbreak of religious crisis in the region.

He called on Christians in the North to be vigilant, and that they should quickly report any clandestine situation/movement to security agents in order to save lives and properties of innocent persons.

The Plateau State Youth Council (PYC) also condemned the murder of a Plateau indigene, Ropvil Daciya Dalep, by the insurgents.

Chairman of the council, Fabong Jemchang Yildam said, “We condemn the killing of Ropvil, a 200L Biology student of the University of Maiduguri, who was abducted while returning to school two weeks ago. This is one death too many to bear.”
