Taraba murder: CAN demands justice

The Taraba State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the recent killings of innocent people within the Yantu Special Development Zone of the state.

The incident occurred on Friday when armed robbers targeted Oussa city and Takum local council villages, The Guardian reported. At the time of filing this report, the attack continues to cause tension and led to the gruesome killing of over 11 farmers.

CAN expressed concern, highlighting the shocking nature of the attack and highlighting its apparent contradiction with the recently signed peace agreement.
The association expressed regret that despite the agreement, the man and woman were subjected to unprovoked attacks that resulted in their deaths.

Wondering why the attacks continue unabated, the association called for a comprehensive investigation to identify the perpetrators and allow them to face their music.

The incident highlighted the continuing unrest of the violence despite concerted efforts by various stakeholders to restore lasting peace to the land of Kuteb in South Taraba.

He also called on the government to take decisive steps to end such atrocities. In a statement, CAN directly appealed to the government and intelligence services to take all possible steps to arrest those responsible for the barbaric act.

CAN called for peace in the affected communities, while stressing the importance of not taking the law into their own hands. Instead, the association encouraged residents to assist security agencies by providing relevant information that could lead to the speedy arrest of the culprits.
