The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State, Reverend Joseph Hayab has suggested that with adequate and prompt intelligence gathering, the insecurity currently bedeviling Nigeria can be stopped.
Hayab, who was visibly worried about the situation, expressed this while fielding questions from newsmen in Kaduna on Sunday April 7, 2019 where he was spotted as special guest at the closing of the 53rd Annual Convention of the United Church of Christ In Nations (HEKAN) at Gonin Gora in Kaduna.
“The government must do more on intelligence gathering. These kidnappers are not spirits, they are humans, they can be traced and stopped,” he stressed.
Hayab who has been at the forefront of championing peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims for decades, said that the killings in any parts of Northern Nigeria today, needs no rhetorics,
“We as a church and Christian leaders appeal to government to act beyond rhetoric, the fact is that the govt needs to do more,” he submitted.
Hayab lamented that insecurity has denied Kaduna State of many things.
“Everyday you are paying money to kidnappers, everyday people are scared of engaging in their normal activities, this is worrisome,” he added.
