Murder in Taraba: CAN condemns act


The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has condemned the murder of a pastor and his wife by soldiers in Taraba State.

Over a year now, there have been series of communal conflicts in the Southern area of the state, which have not received adequate government intervention and is remotely linked to the murder of the cleric and his wife.

The late cleric, who was a pastor of Christians Reformed Church of Nigeria, in Donga LGA of Taraba State, was murdered alongside his wife who was reported to be pregnant, by military men while they worked in their farm.

The CAN National Vice President, Rev. Caleb Ahima, speaking at the National headquarters of CRC-N, described the act as despicable and called on the government to intervene in the crisis, as farmers are no longer safe working in their farms.
