Southern Kaduna Massacre: Killings are not Religious – Says Federal Govt.

The nation’s minister of Interior, retired Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, has made a call on Religious leaders to stop describing the ongoing crisis between herdsmen and farmers in Southern Kaduna as religious.

Gen. Dambazau made it known in a statement yesterday via Mr Ehisienmen Osaigbovo, his Press Secretary, urging Nigerians to stop making some comments that would increase tension along with the crisis, but to work together with the government to put an end to the attacks.

He made observations that some persons have always looked for ways to create religious and ethnic divisions for their own selfish interest, with the aim of creating instability in the country.

He stated that true and trust worthy religious leaders will not increase hate, but will make sure that everyone lives in peace and harmony.

“With not less than 500 ethnic group and different religions in Nigeria, it’ll be very difficult for Economic growth and development unless we resolve to live amicably as a people with common destiny”, he stated.

The statement also made emphasis that criminals who carry out violence against innocent, law-abiding citizens did not discriminate along religious and ethnic lines, citing examples of how Communities in Zamfara, Katsina, Taraba, Enugu, Lagos and Niger were victimised by those violent criminals.

He further added that, “Criminals should be treated as one, even though he is involved in armed robbery, drug trafficking, homicides or cattle rustling. People should stop encouraging criminals with religious and ethnic sentiments,” he added.

He urged all religious leaders to keep a watchful eye on the real enemies of the country, who bring in illegally bought weapons to terrorize Christians and Muslims communities alike.

Dambazau stated that directives has been given to the Nigerian Police to make sure that there adequate order, and also to arrest anyone who engages in criminal activities in the area and across the country.

In a recent statement by Apostle Johnson Suleman, who is the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide, strongly criticized the the President Muhammadu Buhari and El-Rufai led government in the way it has handled the genocide in Southern Kaduna.
