The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice to begin the process of outlawing the armed militia that is believed to be responsible for the attacks as terrorists in the wake of the Christmas Eve attacks that left numerous people dead in several communities in Plateau State.

According to CAN, the Terrorism Act of 22’s proscription will grant security services the authority to completely confront terrorists.

The call was made on Monday at a peace walk in Jos by Rev. Stephen Baba Panya, the President of ECWA and Vice President of CAN in Plateau State.

“We unanimously call on the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice to immediately begin the process of formally outlawing the armed terrorist militias that are carrying out these senseless killings,” he declared.

“They ought to have a formal terrorist designation. As stated in the Terrorism Act of 2022, this will enable the military to completely engage them.

The armed Fulani militias were listed as the fourth deadliest terror group in the world by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI) in 2015. Nigeria needs to act immediately to treat them as such and encourage other West African nations to follow suit through ECOWAS. Addressing the threat posed by the Fulani militias requires a regional approach, consensus, and swift action.

CAN demanded the creation of a North Central Development Commission in order to lessen the suffering of the assault victims in the area.

We strongly appeal to the Federal Government to establish the North Central Development Commission (NCDC).
“This has become necessary following the frequent attacks and wanton destruction of lives and properties across the zone in the last decade.

“Therefore, the massive and unrelenting destruction of lives and properties in the Savannah belt region of the Middlebelt, which has witnessed continuous attacks and killings in Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa, Niger States; and Southern Kaduna, make a strong case for the establishment of the North Central Development Commission (NCDC).
