The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Sunday joined other Christians in prayers and protest against killings in Southern Kaduna.
Naija News reports that CAN President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle, was at the protest tagged “White Sunday.”
Others at the event were President of Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Rev. (Dr) Stephen Payan Baba; former CAN National Secretary Engr. Samuel Salifu and HEKAN President Rev. Amos G. Kiri.
Speaking at the protest, Rev Ayokunle stated that when expectations from leaders are not met, only fools will keep quiet.
He said: “We are tired of bloodletting and you cannot fold your hands and allow people who don’t value human lives come and kill you and destroy your properties, you must rise up to the challenge in defence of yourself against the killers.
“People of Southern Kaduna like any other Nigerian citizens have right to live and that is what I will discuss with the Governor when I meet him and for him to do all within his powers to stop the killings in Kaduna State”.
Also speaking, Rev. Father Fredrick Byat decried the reoccurring killings by those he said have lost feelings for humans.
“Fulani militias are in a genocidal mission and killing with reckless abandon with colossal failure on the part of government to stem the tide.
“Government leaders who fail to act in accordance to the constitution they swore to should resign, efforts being put in place to contain the COVID- 19 pandemic should also be replicated in protecting people against killers.
“Government will be seen as conspirators if they fail to protect citizens against attackers and evil will triumph if good people fail to do something, killing everywhere must be condemned.
“No need to keep silence or seat on the fence, we must speak out, killing in Southern Kaduna is satanic and callous, peace is an illusion in the absence of justice”.
