Sokoto Tragedy: Nigerians are being killed like chickens - CAN laments

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed their displeasure about the gruesome murder of travellers by terrorists in the Sokoto state and other parts of Nigeria.

According to the association, the tragic incidents depict that human life is cheaper than that of chickens today in the country.

Vice-Chairman of the association (Northern states and Abuja), Rev John Joseph Hayab made this known in a statement on Thursday, December 9, 2021.

“How can people be productive when they are living in perpetual fear of terrorists in their homes and everywhere they go?

"Security of lives and property is a serious government business but what we are seeing today is how some of our leaders are playing politics with a serious matter that has almost destroyed the peace, joy and hope of the citizens.

“CAN is appealing to security agencies to stop the unhealthy competition amongst them and work together in unity for the common good of all Nigerians.

"Our security agencies have all it will take to defeat these terrorists.

“CAN on its part will continue to offer our prayers, support and play any role that will help to bring this evil to an end.

“CAN Northern States commiserate with families of those who lost their lives and pray that God comforts them and repose the souls of the departed,” parts of the statement read.
