The Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace (IDFP) says the Federal Government has run out of excuses regarding numerous killings in the country.
The group, therefore, urged the government to arrest and prosecute those responsible for the killings.
This is contained in the communique of the IDFP 3rd Annual General Assembly and Peace Conference, with the theme: “Interreligious Dialogue: Strengthening the Culture of Peace, Justice and Reconciliation”.
The jointly signed communique by the co-chairmen of the IDFP, Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni and Bishop Sunday Onuaha and other leaders of the forum, was presented to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
“Government must arrest and prosecute those responsible for the killings in Nigeria if there is still any leadership in this country. Government has exhausted her windows of excuses. As religious leaders, we may sound mild and conciliatory, it is necessary to sound a note of warning to the leaders of the nation. Things are not well with the nation. The government should avoid anything that will lead to anarchy in the nation,” the communique said.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who was represented by Pastor Sheyi Malomo, the Chaplain, State House Chapel declared open the event which was attended by over 150 interreligious leaders mainly Muslims and Christians.
