CAN condemns killing of Muslim travellers in Jos, urges arrest of perpetrators


The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Plateau chapter, on Sunday condemned killing of 25 commuters at Rukuba road, in Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

Rev. Fr. Polycarp Lubo, the CAN chairman in the state, urged security agencies to fish out the perpetrators.

Recall that Elombahnews had reported that suspected Irigwe youths on Saturday attacked five busses with over 90 Muslim travellers, killed 25 persons and injured many others.

Mr Lubo also condemned ongoing killings in Bassa, Riyom, Jos South and Barkin Ladi local government areas.

“We wish to express deep pain over the recent attacks in Riyom, Jos North, Barakin Ladi and Bassa, leading to loss of lives and property.

“The leadership of CAN totally condemns these attacks and pleads with security agents to ensure normalcy is restored.

“Every human life is precious and the unlawful killing of any human being, regardless of their identity and affiliation, is unacceptable.

”We mourn with the families of those who lost their loved ones, as well as those who have been displaced or suffered harm of any kind.

“We urge security agencies to swiftly arrest all those involved, to bring an end to the needless killings,” he said.

Mr Lubo said the association would continue to work toward ensuring peaceful coexistence in the state.
