CAN-LOGOThe Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the 19 northern states and Abuja has said that the eight people killed over alleged blasphemy at Talata Mafara area of Zamfara State last week, were not Christians.

There was outrage last week over news reports that the victims of a mob action over alleged blasphemy were Christians in spite of clarifications by the state governor, Abdulaziz Yari, that those killed were not Christians.

Confirming the development, the spokesman of the Northern CAN, Reverend John Hayab, in a press conference after the association’s emergency meeting, which held in Jos, said the association frowns at the killing of any Nigerian under the guise of religion or whatever in the country.

He said “We met over the killings going on in Northern Nigeria. We clearly understood that those killed in Zamfara were not Christians. So, the erroneous story going on in the social media and in many other media claiming that those roasted were Christians should be corrected.

“As an organization, we frown at the killing of human beings in whatsoever guise. Human beings are human beings and if they are criminals, there are police. We should report them to the police to arrest them and not to set them ablaze. Our concern is that our nation is becoming barbaric.

“There is no justification whatsoever for the shedding of blood of any citizen”.
