Muslim, Christian groups appeal for return of looted items

Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)

The Taraba chapters of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Muslim Council have jointly urged looters of palliatives in Jalingo and Wukari to return their loot immediately in order to avoid the wrath of God.

The two religious bodies sounded the warning at a press conference they jointly addressed in Jalingo on Thursday.

They stated that special prayers would be offered during  Juma’at prayers and Sunday Church service across the state to restore peace in Taraba and Nigeria.

They said however, all those who looted materials must cooperate with the two religious bodies and security agencies and return the items to escape the wrath of the Almighty

The  Chairman of CAN, Rev. Isaiah Magaji, and that of the Muslim Council, Grand Khadi Ahmed Bose, frowned at the incident.

The  two bodies also  commiserated with the Taraba government and private individuals affected by the looting and destruction of property.

The religious bodies also advised   parents to always monitor the activities of their children and wards in order to prevent them from getting involved in crime and other social vices.

They  called on all local government branches of  the council and the association to sensitise parents and guardians on the importance of good parenting and mentoring of their children.
