The Kaduna State Chapter of theChristian Assoication of Nigeria (CAN) has accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State of lying to deceive the international community and Nigerians with the fake news that 66 people were killed in communal clashes in the state a day to the Saturday elections which were postponed nu the INEC.

The Kaduna CAN Chairman, Rev. Joseph Hayab, said “The press statement by the spokesman for Kaduna State Governor, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, suggests that “the killings in Kajuru Local Government were carried yesterday (Friday) 15/2/2019. This is false in its entirety.

Hayab declared: “We are aware that the incident happened in the late hours of Sunday 10 February to February 12, 2019, at about 1.00am at Gindin Gada in the Maro Ward of Kajuru Local Government, Kaduna State where unidentified hoodlums went into the village and killed about 11 people in their sleep.

“The incident led to reprisals. Two of the suspects were said to have been apprehended and handed over to the Divisional Police Officer in the area. It was in the afternoon of the said date of the attack (as contained in the press statement) that the District Head of Kufana, Mr. Titus Dauda, and four of his local chiefs were released after their invitation by the Department of State Services.

“We see this as an illogical intentional, premeditated attempt at stirring violence in the state for whatever expected gains. The incidence of raising false alarm by the Kaduna State Government should make Nigerians realise that some of our leaders are also guilty of hate speech and that makes them major actors in the game that has denied us peace and has claimed the lives of our love ones.’’
