The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Taraba state chapter has again expressed regrets at the recent bomb blast in Jalingo, the state capital.
Making their position known in a press statement issued on Sunday, the association said there is a need for people to come together to say no to bloodthirsty terrorists.
CAN Chairman, Rev (Dr) Isaiah Magaji Jirapye, who signed the statement expressed dismay that the explosion came a few days after the Islamic State’s West Africa (ISWAP), claimed responsibility for the Iware blast that gulped several lives, and left other persons with injuries.
”The Jalingo explosion which left some people injured is evidence of the presence of bad elements and terrorists in the state, it is satanic for anyone to carry a bomb or explosive device and detonate it among people to kill,” they said.
Arguing that “life is sacred and belongs to God, he said Tarabans must arise to see that the peace the state is enjoying is sustained.
He also tasked the state government to initiate measures aimed at identifying and flushing out the elements and their cohorts who according to them have set up camps across the state.
He urged Tarabans to never be afraid but be strong as God will definitely grant them victory over the challenges.
