CAN tasks FG on insecurity … Ends three-day fasting and prayer sessions

The Federal Government has been charged to take immediate steps to tackle the increasing rate of insecurity in parts of the country.
This call was made by the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Lagos State chapter at the end of its 3-day fasting and prayer session for God’s intervention on the state of the nation.
The 3-day programme was held at the Hoares Memorial Cathedral of Methodist Church, Yaba, Lagos.
Chairman of the Lagos State (CAN), Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, who was represented by the chapter, secretary, Baba Aladura Israel Akinadewo called on the federal government to rise up to its responsibilities of protecting lives and property of Nigerians.  He also urged the government to prosecute suspects arrested for the killings across the country.
“We have witnessed series of mass burials in the Northern part of our nation and that is why we are calling on the government to rise to their responsibilities by securing the lives of the masses.  An end must come to all these killings”, he said.
Over 1,000 Nigerians have been killed in the last one year by rampaging armed herdsmen, especially in the North central area of Nigeria triggering off national and international condemnations.
The herdsmen, apart from killing natives, also sack them from their homelands and occupy them, forcing the victims to live in IDP camps scattered all over Benue, Taraba, Nasarawa and Plateau States.
