A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has declared that those behind the religious clashes in Kaduna State will be severely punished.
Tinubu condemned the fresh communal crisis at Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state, which left over 50 people dead
The APC leader stated this in a statement in Lagos by his Media Office and signed by Tunde Rahman.
The former Lagos State Governor and federal lawmaker pointed out that it was necessary for people of various religious groups and persuasions to accommodate one another.
The APC leader admonished “traditional, religious and youth leaders to embrace peace and put an end to the mayhem and bloodshed,” which first reared its head in the area in February this year, claiming 10 lives.
He particularly urged “the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) in Kaduna State and in the troubled area to inculcate in their members and youths generally, the importance of peaceful co-existence and the sanctity of human life,” saying “without peace and tranquility, a society cannot make any meaningful progress.”
“Security agencies must also be alive to their responsibilities and step up their intelligence gathering mechanism. The police should be pro-active so they nip any deadly attack in the bud before they are hatched.
“We must bring all the perpetrators of this fresh attack to book, they must be made to face the full wrath of the law in order to serve as a deterrent against any future nefarious plan,” he added.
