The State Chairman of CAN, Rev. Dr. Innocent Solomon who stated this in Jalingo said the current ongoing attacks in killings in Taraba must stop.
He explained that the commissioner of Police, the commanding officer of the Nigerian Army, 20 Battalion Serti and all security agencies must rise to their responsibility and ensure that killers of Taraba crisis are brought book.
“No tribe or religion has monopoly of violence and no one tribe is born to rule and others to be slave.
“We admonished those in the helm of affairs to use their powers correctly, righteousness and fairly and ensure that justice which is the fundamental principles of governance is adhered to.
“Justice must be served on those who are executing a genocide in Nigeria against ordinary and law abiding citizens especially in northern Nigeria that is today stinking with blood,” he said.
He sympathised with the victims of the crisis in the state.
He expressed worry that Nigeria was passing through difficult times at the moment, adding that the church must pray hard and remain united to save Nigeria from her numerous challenges.
He urged the government to sit up and tackle the security challenges facing the country.
“The government that preaches agriculture should protect farmers to go to farm.
