Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Sanga Local Council of Kaduna State have passed a vote of no confidence in some security agencies over insecurity in the area.

Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Sanga Local Council of Kaduna State have passed a vote of no confidence in some security agencies over insecurity in the area.

The indictment was part of the resolutions reached at the end of a summit by pastors in the area, following what they termed “the destruction of crops and indiscriminate killing of Christians across Sanga.”

Presenting the communiqué to newsmen, yesterday, secretary of the association, Silas Dabo, lamented that “the conflict between pastoralists and farmers has since become a merchandise and easy path to opulence by some section of the security in the local government.”

A copy of the communiqué had been presented to Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) in Gwantu.

While explaining that the situation has left farmers helpless, he appealed to the authorities to investigate the matter to ensure sanity for sustainable peace and unity.

The pastors noted that for the fragile peace to be maintained, the security should desist from taking sides on conflicts between farmers and pastoralists and ensure that justice is done, and seen to be done, in the area.

The summit also advocated the suspension of cattle grazing at the commencement of every farming season till the end of harvest, as it was the practice decades ago, which brought orderliness.

CAN said it would continue to prevail on Christendom to desist from resorting to violence as a remedy, and make deliberate efforts to give peace a chance.

The summit touched on the forthcoming general elections, alleging plans to disenfranchise Christians yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
