Southern Kaduna Killing: Presidency Statement Unfortunate, Shameful, Says CAN Chairman


By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo

The Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State branch, Reverend Joseph Hayab has described the comments of the Presidency on the insecurity in Southern Kaduna as shameful and saddening.

Featuring on a radio programme in Osogbo on Thursday, Hayab who described the president’s statement as unfortunate stated that such statement should not have come from a leader whose responsibility is to protect lives and property of its citizens.

The Presidency had on Tuesday, said that the violence and killings in Southern Kaduna have persisted because of the “evil combination of politically-motivated banditry, revenge killings and mutual violence by criminal gangs acting on ethnic and religious grounds.

The CAN chairman, however, said, “What is it that is called revenge? so, it is revenge when someone is sleeping in their house and bandit just walked in and kill them, burn their house.

“In this particular incident that brought about this reaction of the Federal Government, what are those people who are holding a wedding ceremony has to do with the bandit that federal government called revenge.

“If Buhari is not ashamed to honour what the Constitution has spelt out for him in term of security, then it is saddening.

“Buhari went ahead to lie that there is enough security in Southern Kaduna, what a shame if we have enough security in the region; and killing has become everyday’s business, people are no longer save.”

Hayab also accused the presidency of lying about the claim that the criminal group are killing another criminal group.
