Why Kano always? – CAN

The Northern Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Sunday, reacted to the gruesome murder of Bridget Agbahime by angry Muslim youths in Kano describing it as unacceptable and barbaric and urged the Kano State Governor ,Abdullahi Ganduje and Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, to call their people to order.
CAN also questioned why such barbaric acts always occur in Kano.
Public Relations Officer of Northern CAN, Reverend John Hayab, said, “Why must it always be Kano State. This is not telling good of the state known to be a commercial city.”
“We got it on good authority that the slained woman never blasphemed the Prophet Mohammed. That the mastermind of the killing, was fond of always provoking the deceased and so, on that fateful day, we learnt, the said man was doing ablution in front of the woman’s shop and was cautioned. That was all. The man raised the alarm that she blasphemed Prophet Mohammed.”
“The man deliberately provoked the woman in question just to carry out that gruesome and barbaric acts.”
“We are saying the mere arrest of the key suspect of this barbaric act was not enough. All those that perpetuated the killing of the innocent woman must be fished out and brought to book.”
“The state government must go further than this and the Emir of Kano and all well- meaning citizens of Kano must come out and condemned it. This is not telling good of the area(Kano).”
“We are committed to peace and stability of this country. We can’t understand why our people should be killed on flimsy excuse(s).”  However, the CAN in Abuja is insisting on open trial of the arrested people.
