Kaduna, 31 August, 2021 / 9:26 pm (ACI Africa).
Christian youth leaders in Nigeria have condemned the increased killings in the country’s Plateau State and called for an end to the bloodshed.
Plateau State has been experiencing heightened insecurity since August 14 when Muslims who were returning from the commemoration of the Islamic New Year in Nigeria’s Bauchi State were ambushed and murdered.
The attack left at least 22 people dead, Reuters reported.
“The act of willful killing in Nigeria, especially the recent ugly situation in Plateau state must stop with immediate effect. Enough is enough,” the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Youth Wing (YOWICAN) has been quoted as saying in a Monday, August 30 news report.
“We condemn the killings in totality,” the Christian youth leaders say, and emphasize that the murders “must stop.”
