Read What This Bishop Said About Kaduna Killings
Kaduna state is one of the violence prone places in Nigeria, and only recently, 55 people were killed in a clash.
Though a 24-hour curfew has been imposed by the state government in a move to bring the situation under control, there could be war of words between communities and religions in the state.
This is why Most Rev. Mathew Ndagoso, the Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, is appealing to people of Kaduna State to shun rumour mongering and acts capable of fueling crisis.
Ndagoso said in a statement in Kaduna while reacting to recent violence in the state, that residents must learn to accommodate each other and settle their differences amicably.
“As members of one nation, we must seek ways of understanding, of building bridges to one another based on a solid foundation of truth.
“I am not oblivious of the pain that has been caused by the loss of loved ones, both Christian and Muslim.
“At the same time, I ask that all reflect on the reality that violence only begets more violence. This suffering has gone on for too long and we beg that it be stopped for the common good.”
He thanked the state government and security agents for their quick intervention in bringing the situation under control.
The Kaduna State Government on Sunday imposed a 24-hour curfew on Kaduna metropolis and environs following violent clashes.
The violence erupted four days after 55 people were killed in Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.
