The Northern States Branch of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday said the trial of the killers of Bridget Agbahime must not be done in a secret.
Speaking at a press conference, the spokesperson of the association, Revd. John Joseph Hayab, faulted the action of the police who claimed to have saved the husband of the late Madam Agbahime from the mob but could not rescue the woman or arrest the perpetrators almost immediately.
The CAN also wondered why people would just wake up and kill a fellow human being just because they are angry with such an individual.
It, however, appealed to Kano State government to make deliberate policies aiming at stopping this type of extremism, adding that “this type of issue is given the Kano State a bad name and image.”
The CAN officials further 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.
