Southern Kaduna Killings: CAN, Southern Kaduna leaders boycott peace summit
The leadership of the Kaduna chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, church leaders from the Southern part of Kaduna as well as the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, on Tuesday, boycotted a peace summit in Kafanchan, Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The ‘peace’ meeting was put together by “Friends of Southern Kaduna” partnering with the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission. The event was geared towards halting the nearly endless killings in Southern Kaduna communities.
The clerics had blamed the timing of the meeting.
Similarly, the SOKAPU in a letter dated September 6, 2020, and addressed to the Chairman, Local Organising Committee of the Peace Summit, Pastor James Novel Wuye, said they wished to have had a consultation with the conveners before the summit.
The letter signed by Secretary of SOKAPU, Stephen Mallan, was titled, ‘Re: Invitation to participate in Peace Summit for the de-escalation of the conflict in Southern Kaduna’.
