Insecurity in Nigeria: Sack security chiefs now, CAN tells Buhari

Following the Monday’s beheading of the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa state, Rev. Lawan Andimi, the national body of CAN has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the heads of all the security agencies in the country.

The CAN President, Dr. Samson Ayokunle, told newsmen on Thursday in Abuja that it was wrong for the President to still keep the service chiefs in view of their failure to address the rising insecurity in the country.

Ayokunle, at the briefing attended by other leaders of the CAN, also declared Friday, 31st January to 2nd February, 2020 as days for special fasting and prayer for Nigeria in all churches, over the killings of innocent Nigerians to stop and for the government to develop capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation. “Is the government and the security agencies still claiming that the war against Boko Haram and killer-herdsmen has been won despite all the killings?

“Is the government sincere in fighting these terrorists or merely paying lip service to the war against the insurgency? “Can the government tell us what they did since Rev. Andimi cried out to them for help?” the CAN president queried.

He added: “the President should overhaul the security council with a view of bringing in new heads of all the security agencies and the para-military which no religion or part of the country will dominate.”
