Clerics and hundreds of Christians in black attires converged at the ECWA Good News Church in Narayi, Kaduna, to pray against the increasing killings of armed Fulani herders in southern Kaduna communities.
Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna chapter, Rev. Joseph Hayab, who led the prayer and protest against increased wave of attacks and killings in the country, particularly southern Kaduna, said: “It is obvious that the government is culpable over the bloody attack and killings, because through its action and inaction, the situation continues to deteriorate.
Christian leaders of different denominations took to the streets of Kaduna State yesterday to protest against the killings in the state, accusing President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai of allowing the situation to increase rapidly.
CAN secretary in the state, Dr. Sunday Ibrahim, said: “What is going on in the southern part of Kaduna is genocide and ethnic cleansing.”
Meanwhile, the President of the Baptist Church Conference, Rev. Ishaya Adamu, urged all Christians to pray day and night against the attacks and killings in Kaduna.
