Kaduna, 25 May, 2022 / 5:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Christian leaders in Nigeria’s Kaduna State have lamented the disregard for human life characterized by killings that make human life “so cheap” in the West African nation.
In a statement issued after the May 22 reported killing of an expectant woman identified as Fatima, her four children, and six others in Anambra State, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State says ethnic and religious differences have contributed to the loss of respect for human life.
"Life in our country has become so cheap with the raising of many evil criminal groups in every part of the country," Pastor John Joseph Hayab says in a Tuesday, May 24 statement.
The CAN Chairman in Kaduna State adds, “Killing of human beings is no longer a serious matter because the people have been divided by tribe, region, and religion which has made it impossible for us to collectively condemn the evil around us or fight the evil we are seeing as a united force."
Fatima, her four children, and the others were reportedly killed by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State on May 22.
