The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State chapter, has expressed concern over the increased mass killings and insecurity in the north.
The association particularly expressed great concern over the increased killings in Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto and Borno States, and indeed the country at large.
Rev. John Joseph Hayab, the state CAN chairman in a statement issued on Monday, he noted that in the last few weeks, hundreds of people have been killed by the Boko Haram bandits and bandits who are invading communities and unleashing mayhem on the people.
The statement lamented, “Our security agencies appear to be overwhelmed and lack new tactics to handle the situation. Both the states and federal governments seem to be shying away from the reality of the problem and appear to be living in self-denial while people are being massacred by criminals.
“People are now living in perpetual fear as they are not safe on the highways and even in their homes. Rural communities are being invaded by bandits and farmers cannot go to their farms for fear of being killed or being abducted for ransom by gunmen
