C.A.N DEMANDS INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY INTERVENTION IN NIGERIA CHRISTAIN KILLINGS


The Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, had called for the immediate resignation of President Buhari over his inability to tackle the ceaseless herdsmen killings and security challenges confronting the country.

The association had also appealed to the international community to intervene in the crisis to save the country from relapsing into a religious crisis stressing that the attack on the Church in Benue was a jihad that should be stopped. Pope Francis had earlier on Sunday decried the attack on a church in Nigeria.

The Pope was reacting to the killing of two Catholic priests and 17 other worshipers in Benue State by Fulani herdsmen last week Tuesday.
