There is grave injustice in Nigeria, not good for democracy – CAN
The Christian Association of Nigeria CAN says the insecurity situation in the country was dangerous for the nation’s democracy and called on the Federal Government to do all in its powers to bring perpetrators of killings and other crimes to justice.
CAN Secretary in the 17 Southern States Dr Joseph Ajunjugwa who spoke in Enugu state said the organization was saddened that many days after the avoidable attack on lives in Plateau state, the government is still telling the same old fashioned stories, with no arrests being made by either the police or the army.
“For every murderous act of these marauders, the Federal Government and the security agencies reel out words of assurance that never yield any fruit. “We restate once again that the incessant, senseless and wicked killings going on in the Middle Belt and South-East is totally unacceptable to us.
“There is grave injustice in this country and they are not even pretending about it. These people are using AK 47 killing everybody; almost 200 were killed in Jos but the police never arrested any, army never arrested any, and we are saying there is security, there is no security in Nigeria.
“We are calling on the Federal Government; if we have security, let them rise to the challenge, this is not good for this democracy, especially at a time we are preparing for election and such thing is happening,” Ajunjugwa said.
