    CAN blames Muslim leaders of endorsing herdsmen killings

    Rev. Musa Asake

    The Christian Association of Nigeria on Friday blamed leaders of the Jama ’ atu Nasril Islam of endorsing the killings by herdsmen across the country.

    CAN General Secretary , Revd . Musa Asake , said this in reaction to JNI’ s allegation that Christian leaders were promoting violence in Nigeria.

    The JNI, headed by the Sultan of Sokoto , Saad Abubakar, had earlier in a statement by its secretary , Khalid Aliyu , accused Christian leaders of fanning the embers of discord among Nigerians.

    But Asake in a statement in Abuja berated Aliyu for ignoring CAN ’ s position on the ongoing killings in some states of the federation.

    He said, “ Instead of facing reality and admitting its ungodly complicity with the Fulani terrorists , the JNI leadership at its press conference held in Kaduna on January 21 , 2018, embarked on character assassination, acrimony, vulgar abuse in its futile attempt to justify its ungodly , unpatriotic and wicked support for the murderous Fulani herdsmen who are also enjoying the complicity of the security agencies , whose headships are occupied by the JNI’ s cronies at the expense of the unity and progress of our dear country . ”

    The CAN scribe stated that the rampaging herdsmen were enjoying tacit encouragement from the JNI leadership , “ the way and manner they did for the Boko Haram terrorists when they began thinking they were spreading Islam in the country . ”

    The Christian body observed that at no time did the JNI publicly condemn the criminal activities of the Fulani herdsmen since they began killing innocent Nigerians.

    It added , “ It is an open secret that the criminal activities of their boys have gone to the extreme because of the tacit encouragement they are getting from the leadership of the JNI. ”
