Defend Yourselves Against Bandits’ Invasion – Christian Association, CAN Tells Southern Kaduna Residents, Lambasts Security Forces

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State has once again urged the residents of Southern Kaduna and the entire state to take a proactive stance in defending their communities in light of renewed attacks by bandits.

According to CAN, it is the responsibility of the people to safeguard the areas where they reside since security concerns everyone.

Reverend John Hayab, the Chairman of CAN in the state, issued this call in a statement on Friday in response to the attack on the Fadan Kamatan Parish of the Catholic diocese of Kafanchan in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.

He called upon the state governor and all relevant stakeholders to swiftly take action and ensure that those responsible for the Kamatan Evil Night attack are apprehended and brought to justice.

“It is unacceptable that such a heinous act could occur in the heart of the Fadan Kamantan community, with the criminals operating without challenge. This reflects poorly on the security forces in that area, as well as religious, traditional, and community leaders,” he stated.

CAN Kaduna State Chapter has consistently advocated for citizens to complement the government’s primary responsibility of safeguarding lives and property by establishing a community security system to prevent any form of invasion.

He commended the current state administration for its commitment to finding practical, effective, and long-lasting solutions to the security challenges, as evidenced by the ongoing recruitment of over 7,000 individuals into the Kaduna State Vigilante Services (KADVIS).

Reverend John Hayab emphasized that leaders at all levels in Southern Kaduna and Kaduna State must respond to this call and take responsibility for protecting the communities they oversee and reside in.

Hayab expressed sadness that the attack occurred near the major Kaduna-Kafanchan highway, with a military checkpoint not far from the Parish.

CAN and all Christians in the state extended their sympathy to the chief shepherd and local ordinary of Kafanchan Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Julius Kundi, the Parish Priest and Parishioners of Kamatan Parish, the Kurama Community of Brother Naam Ngofe Danladi, the leaders, and the people of Zangon Kataf LGA and Fadan Kamantan community over the unfortunate incident that resulted in the loss of a Seminarian’s life.
