The Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Worldwide has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for responding to the calls of Nigerians on the crisis in Southern Kaduna, Kaduna state.
ECWA said the deployment of special troops from the Nigerian Army and Air Force to stop the killings, destruction of property and hindrances to agro–economic activities was a welcome development.
ECWA, in a statement on Friday in Jos by its National President, Rev. Stephen Panya Baba, said it is better late than never, noting that, “even if it is termed late.”
He urged the Special Forces to respect the rights of citizens of Southern Kaduna irrespective of status, tribe or religion but to treat all without bias.
“Fish out, arrest, disarm and hand over for prosecution the gunmen who have unleashed unwarranted mayhem on the people of Southern Kaduna, especially since intelligence reports from official security and local sources have often revealed the locations of their camps.”
ECWA also called on the federal and state governments to resettle the displaced villagers back to their various villages and give them adequate protection. They prayed for the President and his cabinet, adding that God will help them take the right decisions and succeed at handling the insecurity problems in Nigeria.
