This is genocide, CAN cries out over Plateau killings

The killings is becoming no longer herders and farmers again but delibrate attempt to conguer and occupy the land of the peoples ancestral heritage. CAN also note with great pains the dastardly attacks ongoing in many other local government areas in the State by the herdsmen militias.

CAN condemn in the strongest terms the level of continuous genocide of Plateau people. Barkin Ladi is under siege with more more than 200 innocent precious human lives killed and countless driven out in the rains and left without shelter. CAN is also saddened by the news of attack on CAPRO School of Missions (SOM) in Gana-Ropp by the malitias.

CAN had yesterday made a statement concerning the incedent at Mangu Halle as very unfortunate. CAN had condemned the killings of two persons and pray the Lord to comfort the families. Commend the youth in Mangu and environs as well Youth in Riyom, Barakin Ladi, for their peaceful action that guaranteed peace or else things would have been worst. Commend some security agencies, religious and elders for efforts to calm the situation.

CAN condemns these unholy act of systematic genocide and sees it as a deliberate attempt to destroy the cultural heritage of Plateau people in particular the most affected areas. CAN calls on the Government to use its might to bring these killingd to a stop.

CAN use this media to call on the International community to come to the aid of Plateau people as the security seems to be incapable of contending with the challenges. The soil of Plateau is smelling with rotten dead bodies as a result of silent killings and besides many poeple are missing.

CAN mourns with the families and churches who loss their loved ones prematurely and untimely and calls on the Government, the security at all levels to please arise and do the needful by discharging their constitutional responsibility of protecting lives and properties of its citizens.


Oncce CAN prays God to grant those that have been massacred eternal rest, and provide comfort to bereaved families and the entire people of the state.
