CAN faults Kaduna government’s security report
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State chapter, has faulted the security report of the state government, accusing the Nasir el-Rufai administration of playing games with security challenges in the state.
Chairman of Kaduna CAN, Revd. Joseph Hayab, said: “Nigerians now know who is lying to them about insecurity. It is truism that the casualty figures posted by the association, hitherto, were not exaggerated.
“The Kaduna State Government has now publicly admitted that the number of people kidnapped and killed in the state is not an exaggeration. Despite its effort to twist the report, we are happy that citizens know those who are playing games and twisting facts about the high rate of kidnapping and killings going on in the state.”
According to him, the figure so far given in the report did not include those who handled their kidnapped challenge privately without involving security agencies or reporting to anyone.
However, Hayab said: “It is sad that with the huge claims we have made about spending on security, our figure keeps increasing.
We want to appeal to government and security agencies to redouble their efforts because this is not a success story but a sad story about our state.
“CAN will continue to work and pray for this evil to stop, but we need honest commitment from those in authority.”
