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.
- Lekki Shooting: Who gave the order? many ask as Sanwo-Olu, Army disagree
- Lekki shootings: Panel of inquiry will get CCTV footages – Sanwo-Olu
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.
