Alarm has been raised by the Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, over what it termed the influx of strange faces in the Southeast zone.
This is contained in a statement signed by the body’s Chairman and Secretary, Bishop Goddy Okafor, and Dr S.C. Nwokolo.
The Christian body called on governors of the Southeast zone to ensure they stamp out killer herdsmen from the region.
“All the people without identity, who are flooding the zone, should be stopped by immigration and other law enforcement agencies.
“Also, suspected foreign herders and the killer herdsmen are asked to leave the zone immediately. Most of such foreign and killer herders have been identified in some parts of the zone”.
It maintained its stand against RUGA, saying, “RUGA should be totally abolished. To this effect, we condemn the inciting statements made by the President of the Miyetti Allah asking for RUGA in all the states; else there won’t be peace in the country.
“CAN is calling for his arrest, as comments credited to him have always been inciting. Let him be tried by a competent court of law.”
