CAN faults Presidency over non-prosecution of killer herdsmen

According to reports, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has faulted the presidency on why no armed herdsman has been arrested and prosecuted by the Federal Government.

CAN also demanded an investigation into operations of the Department of State Services, the Nigeria Customs Service and the Nigeria Immigration Service to ascertain how weapons used by the herdsmen got into the country.

“I have said it again and again that an instigation to aggression depends on the level of frustration.”
