Hold Kwara Governor Responsible For Violence In The State – CAN



The Christian Association of Nigeria CAN has called on the Federal Government and the Inspector General of Police to intervene in the ongoing violence over the hijab policy that has led to violence and bloodletting in Kwara State. 

The association in a statement by Joseph Bade Daramola, CAN General Secretary, sais the State government has ordered the reopening of the closed schools without resolving the crisis which has resulted in vandalization of churches and mission schools by hoodlums.

Daramola said Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, should be held responsible if the matter degenerates since it was his pronouncement on the issue of hijab wearing in violation of the court directive on the matter to maintain status quo until the matter is finally resolved by the court that led to this trouble. 

The Christian body described as disheartening and unfortunate the insensitivity of a democratically elected government being insensitive to the plight and the yearning of the people.

He went on to say that there are public schools and schools that belong to some Islamic organisations where those who wanted to be wearing hijab can be attending without causing the ongoing needless crises rocking the state. 

CAN in the statement once again calls on Governor AbdulRazaq to give peace a chance in the State by ordering his hoodlums to stop attacking mission schools and churches in Kwara State before the situation degenerates into an unprecedented religious crisis.
