Taraba killings: Church council expresses fear of impending hunger
The council, (SYNOD) of the Christian Reformed Church of Nigeria (CRCN), has expressed fear of impending hunger in Taraba over the persistent killings in the state.
This was contained in a communique issued at the end of their 19th, general meeting held on Saturday at the (CRCN NO1) in Takum local government area of Taraba and signed by Rev Dr Caleb Ahima, the CRCN president and Rev Sagarga Nuvalga, general Secretary.
The council said, the persistent killings and continues attacks in the southern zone of Taraba would affect farming activities which connote impending hunger in the land.
While calling on the people affected by the crisis to exhibit the virtue of forgiveness, the council encouraged the worrying tribes to exhibit tolerance and love as taught in the holy scripture just as they urged the wary factions to sheath their swords in the interest of peace and development.
The council in the communique called on the Federal and state government to devise measures that would put to rest, the protracted crisis in the state, as the season of lip- service was over and no other time is required to expedite action from the government than now.
They urged stakeholders in the area to unit and support government commitment and efforts towards ending the crisis, just as the council also advised citizens to adhere strictly to the world health organisation safe measures and government directives on containing the spread of the dreaded pandemic, the COVID-19.
