The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Plateau State has condemned the killing at Rukuba road in Jos North Local Government Area.

On Saturday, a convoy of buses conveying commuters was attacked. 22 persons were killed and scores injured.

The state government has declared a curfew in the LGA and two others.

In a statement on Sunday, CAN State Chairman, Rev. Fr. Polycarp Lubo urged security agencies to apprehend the perpetrators.

Lubo also regretted the killings in Bassa, Riyom, Jos South and Barkin Ladi local government areas.

CAN said every human life is precious and that the murder of any human, regardless of their identity and affiliation, is unacceptable.

“We urge security agencies to swiftly arrest all those involved, to bring an end to the needless killings,” Lubo added.
