The Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, Most Rev. Mathew Ndagoso has attributed the cause of killings in Kaduna to rumour-mongering and act of spreading fake news.
Rev. Mathew Ndagoso, therefore, appealed to the people of the State to shun rumour mongering and acts fuelling crisis in the state.
The Archbishop released the statement on Monday while reacting to the recent killing in Kaduna that claimed so many lives.
He said: “As members of one nation, we must seek ways of understanding, of building bridges to one another based on a solid foundation of truth. I am not oblivious of the pain that has been caused by the loss of loved ones, both Christians and Muslims. At the same time, I ask that all reflect on the reality that violence only begets more violence. This suffering has gone on for too long and we beg that it be stopped for the common good.”
He thanked the state government and security agents for their quick intervention in bringing the situation under control.
Mystatenews learnt that the Government of Kaduna State imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state after the violence that killed about 55 people and left many injured.
