Nigeria turning to valley of dry bones – CAN enraged over Taraba killings

The Taraba State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has again called on the Federal Government to, as a matter of urgency, fashion out ways that would permanently bring to an end the ongoing killings in the State.

Reacting to the recent bomb explosion, killing of soldiers and militias attacks in Takum and Ussa councils, as well as in Yangtu Special Development Area, CAN said the Federal Government “must stop all forms of killings in the land before the society turns to a valley of dry bones.”

The association, which made their position known through a press statement obtained by DAILY POST in Jalingo, signed by the chairman, Rev. (Dr) Isaiah Magaji Jirapye, on Friday, said “the unfortunate killing of some military officers in Takum was perpetrated by the militias who have destroyed several lives and properties in the State.”

Though pleased that no life was lost in the explosion that rocked the Army brigade headquarters in Jalingo, such an act, according to them, “proved that there are several explosive devices in the State and in the custody of people who don’t mean well for the harmonious co-existence of the State.”

They stressed that “the third explosion is a wake up call for unity and serious action against terrorism which is trying to occupy the State,” adding that “it requires a collective effort of all irrespective of religion, tribe, section or creed.”

CAN called on the government and security agencies to intensify intelligence to identify the terrorists and their cohorts “before this ugly development gets out of hand.”

On the recent attacks on some communities in Ussa, and Takum local government areas of the State and Yangtu Development Area by the Fulani militias, they made passionate appeal to the government to urgently send relief materials to the affected people and end such forms of “gorilla attacks once and for all”.
