Worried by the spate of killings of Christians, especially in the northern part of the country, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has scheduled an emergency meeting for Jos, the Plateau State capital.
The meeting, slated for tomorrow at the Church of Christ in Nations headquarters, is expected to discuss the killings in the North and how to respond to them. The meeting tagged ‘Unity Meeting,’ is also expected to discuss the divisi on in the association following the decision of Christians in the North to pull out of the association.
Meanwhile, the Northern Nigerian Christians, a breakaway faction from CAN, has expressed regret over the killing of eight persons for alleged blasphemy in the Talata Marafa area of Zamfara State.
The spokesman for the NNC, LUKA SHEHU, told News men in Jos that the organisation was amazed at the rate at which Christians had become target of attacks by extremist groups and called for probe into the killing of Christians in all parts of the North.
SHEHU called on security agencies to launch investigation into the killings of Christians in Abuja, Kaduna, Niger, Benue, Adamawa, Yobe, Borno and Plateau states in the recent past.
