The group is calling them to put adequate measures in place to protect Christians and their places of worship and bring to an end incessant attacks and killings of Christians in the region.
The Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the 19 Northern states and the, FCT, Rev. Yakubu Pam, made the call against the backdrop of recent killings of two Christians in Kano and Niger States.
He lamented that it was unacceptable that some group of persons operating under the guise of defending their religion could murder a woman, Mrs. Bridget Agabahime, in Kano and another Christian male, Chimaije Emmanuel, and accusing them of blaspheming against Prophet Mohammed.
Rev Pam in a press statement issued at the weekend in Jos, charged northern governors to face up to their responsibilities as chief security officers of their states and provide adequate security to the lives and properties of Christians in their states.
He pointed out that Nigerians had equal rights to live in any state of the federation to carry out their lawful businesses without anyone causing harm to them.
In his words, “The recent ugly incidents in Kano and Niger states are regrettable and uncivilized and should not be tolerated by people of good will in this country.
‘’The perpetrators of these evil acts must be fished out with their gangs and made to face the full wrath of the law to serve as deterrence to others who might be nursing such ambition to carry out dastardly act in the nearest future.”
