No Religion Or Culture Accepts Killings, Buhari Vows To End Conflicts


President Muhammadu Buhari says the killings in Nigeria are unacceptable and cannot be justified by any religion or culture. The President, consequently, called on all Nigerians to rise and condemn the bloodshed in the country and the attacks that have left hundreds dead. He spoke about the killings on Thursday in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) from the 19 northern states visited him.

“We, Nigerians, are religious people and no religion or culture accepts the killing of people for any reason whatsoever,” the President said. “This is why we must all rise as one to condemn these vile and wicked acts to ensure that all the culprits are brought to justice.”

Since January 1, 2018, when suspected herdsmen attacked villages in Benue State killing 73 persons, there have been similar attacks in several states with many Nigerians calling on the government to take decisive action, including reviewing the nation’s security architecture. On June 23, an attack on villages in Barkin Ladi, Plateau State, left at least 100 people dead, and led once again to calls on the government to act.
