The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called for prayers for victims of the Plateau State attacks, resulting in the death of over 160 persons and the razing of about 223 houses, tendering over 10,000 misplaced from their homes.

In his New Year message, the CAN President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, while condemning the attacks, canvassed for a Country “where peace justice, and prosperity are not just ideals, but realities for all”.

He described the bandits as “enemies of progress who sort to cast shadows over our joy’ adding that the attacks were a reminder of the fragility of peace and a “recurrent nightmare” that had happened far often.

“We were shocked to find that, as the year drew to a close, the enemies of progress sort to cast a shadow over our joy’ with acts of extreme violence in some communities on the Plateau. In the light of this distressing event, our prayers instensify for the souls we have lost and for the bereaved families.

“In the face of this adversities, It’s imperative that we, as a people, refuse to be discouraged. Instead, we must come together and remain resolute in our commitment to build a united, peaceful and prosperous nation.

. “Together, as one united people, we are capable of creating a Nigeria where peace, justice, and properity are not just ideals, but realities for all”, he said.
