The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has charged the Federal Government to do everything to ensure that adequate security is provided for the lives and property of Christians in the north.
The call came Following recent hostilities against Christians across some states in the Northern region of the country.
chairman of CAN in the 19 Northern states and the Federal Capital Territory, Reverend Yakubu Pam, in a statement issued in Jos on Saturday, described the circumstances under which Mrs. Bridget Mike Agabahime, 74, and Methodus Chimaije Emmanuel were killed under religious guise in Kano and Niger states respectively as unfortunate, barbaric, and unacceptable in Nigeria.
According to him, the regrettable and uncivilized killings should not be tolerated by people of good will in Nigeria.
Pam also charged the Northern governors to live up to their responsibilities as the chief security officers of their respective states, to provide adequate security for the lives and property of Christians in their states.
He insisted that all Nigerians have equal rights to live in any state of the federation irrespective of their religion, and to carry out their businesses lawfully without anyone causing harm to them.
