THE Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has called on Nigerians to stop politicising killings going on in Southern Kaduna.
CBCN in a statement signed by the President, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, Archbishop Augustine Obiora Akubeze called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the killings are put to a stop and ensure that perpetrators of the heinous crimes are brought to justice.
“We are all tired of this situation; we do not want any politician to politicize the killing of Nigerians.
“There should be one response from everyone, and that is; the killings must stop.
“Our hearts are bleeding, and we are more troubled when we hear of the massacre presently going on in Southern Kaduna.
“We want all the people suffering the incessant attacks in Southern Kaduna to know that all Catholics in Nigeria are praying for them.
“We call on the Federal and the Government of Kaduna to bring a complete stop to the killing of innocent people.
“The loss of the life of any Nigerian does not help to further the agenda of any religious ideology or the ambition of any politician.
“The perpetrators of the killings must be brought to justice.
“Where there is no justice or justice is not seen to be done, there cannot be peace.
“Where there is no peace, there cannot be development. Any Government, State or Federal that wants peace must work for justice for everyone
