The Plateau state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has condemned Saturday’s killing of commuters along Rukuba road, in Jos.
In a statement on Sunday in Jos, chairman of the association, Rev. Fr. Polycarp Lubo, urged security agencies to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
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”, Lubo said.
The statement said, “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,”
Lubo assured that CAN will continue to work towards ensuring peaceful coexistence in Plateau state.
