  • Kaduna Christian Youths Regroup Over Attacks, Killings Of Members

    Kaduna State

    A Youths Wing’s Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna South Local Government, recently convened a meeting of stakeholders, and deliberated extensively on ways to contain the consistent attacks and killings of their Christian members in the Northern part of Nigeria by Muslims, describing the act as a deliberate ploy to enslave them.

    Participants in the meeting, which held on Wednesday evening at Albarka Church premises in Kaduna south, expressed displeasure over the continuous and unwarranted attacks and killings of Christians by their Muslim brothers at all times without any punitive measures against the attackers.

    Youths participants, drawn from across different church denominations, dwelt mostly on the recent killings and attacks in Kano and Kaduna states. Members expressed dismay that mere condemnation of the act perpetrated against Christians by the opposite religion would no longer be condoned, as no religious faithful has monopoly of violence. 

    Also worried and discussed was the public commentaries ascribed to some top government functionaries in Kaduna state that tend to play down the population of Christians, describing it as ‘derogative and disparaging’ Southern Kaduna population or sized.

    Specifically, they condemned the statement by the APC government in its “30%” population estimation of Southern Kaduna and others, saying it’s unfair. They also pointed out that the habit of describing penetrators of the callous act of attackers as criminals and non-Muslims, without any public capital punishment, would no longer be tolerated.

    Numbering over a hundred, the youth, which involved non-indigenes, resolved to continue to watch with curiosity, actions that would be taken against the recent killings and attacks on Christians in Kano, Kaduna, Niger and others States in the north, adding that the outcome would determine their reaction in cases of future occurrence.

    Officials, led by its chairman, Solomon Tanko, however appealed to the Youth CAN to avoid any act that would jeopardize any peace process, saying, it’s following the issues judiciously with a view to report back to them.

    My name is ASP Usman Gambo Kobin, I am a retired police officer, I am from Kobin, Numana Chiefdom, Sanga LGA of Kaduna state.

I then went to my old father around 7am and said, “baba, I don’t know what may happen to us today based on what we have been told but stay at home and don’t move around”.
