‘We pray this incident is not repeated’ – CAN fires Army over death of 150 civilians at Tudun Biri



The CAN said it was “saddened” by the news after the security agency took responsibility for the bombing.

A statement issued by Rev. John Joseph Hayab, state chairman of CAN on Monday said, “The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State chapter is saddened by the sad news of a wrong target bombing carried out by the Nigerian Army which occurred in Tudun Biri, Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna State.

“The situation occurred when the Nigerian Army was on a routine mission against terrorists but inadvertently affected members of the community leaving several citizens dead and many others injured.

“CAN, therefore, wishes to commiserate with the Muslim Ummah as many of the affected were said to be celebrating the Maulud.”

It described the incident as unfortunate.

“The wrong target bombing is most unfortunate, especially as it comes at a time when the security agencies and Nigerians alike are working tirelessly to ensure that our society is free from criminal elements that go about killing, abducting, rustling cattle, and destroying property of innocent citizens,” the statement added.

“It is our prayer that such an unfortunate incident is not repeated in the future, whether in Kaduna State or any part of the country,” the statement observed.
