Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) president, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, has reacted to the “ongoing genocide” in Benue and Taraba states.
Ayokunle warned that “it is high time we stopped theses killings before we are thrown into another needless civil war”.
Ayokunle spoke on Friday in Abuja at the International Workers’ Retreat of the Convention said.
The CAN leader, who prayed for peace in the areas, asked God to comfort the bereaved, heal those recuperating in the hospitals.
He challenged federal (affected) state governments and the security agencies to live up to the expectation.
“Those bloodletting could have been avoided if our political leaders and the heads of the security agencies are alive to their responsibilities.
“This is why the Christian Association of Nigeria has been consistently calling on them to live up to the billings.
“What is happening in the Northcentral of the country is a shame, ungodly, wicked and ungodly”.
