Members of the northern caucus of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have called on relevant authorities to ensure that the trial suspects in the murder of Madam Bridget Agbahime who was murdered at Kofar Wambai market is done in the open.
Addressing a news conference in KanoÂ on Sunday, the spokesman of the Northern chapter of CAN, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, faulted the police who claimed to have saved the husband of the victim from the mob but, could not rescue her or arrest the perpetrators almost immediately.
Hayab called on religious leaders to preach the true tenets of religion, saying wanton killing in the name of religion is becoming too much to bear.
He also appealed to Kano State Government to make deliberate policies aiming at stopping this type of extremism, adding that, â€œthis type of issues is given the Kano State a bad name and image.â€
â€œThe Kano State government has to ensure that the trial of the man that raised the false alarm and his cohorts is not done in secret in order to serve as deterrent to others,â€ he said.
According to CAN â€œKano State government must do something permanently about this kind of issues which keep occurring, because this whole issue give the state a bad name before the international community.â€
The religious body therefore appealed to Christians to be law abiding with government at all levels as well as offer persistent prayers for the unity and progress of the country.
