The Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN,have raised alarm over the influx of strange faces in the Southeast region of Nigeria.
A statement signed by Chairman and Secretary, Bishop Goddy Okafor, and Dr S.C. Nwokolo, the body called on governors of the region to move towards expelling killer herdsmen from the region.
“All the people without identity, who are flooding the zone, should be stopped by immigration and other law enforcement agencies.
“Also, suspected foreign herders and the killer herdsmen are asked to leave the zone immediately. Most of such foreign and killer herders have been identified in some parts of the zone”.
The statement also exoressed its stand against RUGA, saying, “RUGA should be totally abolished. To this effect, we condemn the inciting statements made by the President of the Miyetti Allah asking for RUGA in all the states; else there won’t be peace in the country.
“CAN is calling for his arrest, as comments credited to him have always been inciting. Let him be tried by a competent court of law.”
