    *says sanctity of human life must be upheld
    The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN ), Kaduna State has made a passionate appeal to citizens and all stakeholders to join hands with government and security agencies in the state to bring an end to killings in the state.

    The appeal was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman CAN Kaduna State, Rev John Joseph Hayab, made available to our correspondent on Wednesday January 26, 2022.

    “CAN Kaduna State received with sadness, the news of the killing of a herder in Kaduna which has led to a renewed circle of massacres. 
    “The development is tragic, therefore, CAN appeals to citizens and all stakeholders to join hands to bring to a stop this new wave of killings,” it said.
    CAN lamented that  the state has been on the news for the wrong reasons which include banditry, kidnapping, assaults on communities and killings of innocent citizens. 
    “This evil must stop now and those keeping quiet need to speak up forthwith,” the statement charged.
    It further pointed out that the state  cannot afford to  pass this type of record to the next generation. 
    “When others are struggling to get out of poverty to become self-reliant we are now famous for killing others at every slight provocation,” it said.
    Hayab said that their individual  faith and culture does not teach  a barbaric manner of settling conflicts. 
    “We should, therefore, strengthen our love for one another and value the sanctity of human life.
    “We must all resolve that no life should be sacrificed from now henceforth in our state, irrespective of the identity of victims,” he advised.
    Accordingly, CAN said that the body is willing to work with all peace-loving individuals, groups and organisations to bring back the lost glory of Kaduna State and uphold the sanctity of human life.
