CAN condemns release of suspected killers of 74 year old Christian woman in Kano over blasphemy

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the release of the five suspected killers of 74 year old christian woman, Bridget Agbahime, over allegations of blasphemy at Kofar Wambai market, Kano state on June 2nd this year. A magistrate court in Kano last week Thursday November 3rd, set the suspected murderers free on the advise of the Kano state attorney general(read here)
In a statement signed by its Director of Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Samuel, CAN described the manner in which the case has so far been handled as highly provocative and insulting. The association decried the fact that no conviction has been made regarding any murder case that is linked to blasphemy.
“The Association condemns the continuous act of killing of innocent Nigerians under the pretense of blasphemy and considers the willful absence of justice for victims of these mindless killings in Nigeria by the relevant authorities as a very serious constitutional breach and security threat to our unity and collective survival as a nation. The now-familiar tradition of avoidance to arrest or properly investigate and prosecute cases involving the deliberate killing of innocent Nigerians is evidence of a scripted plan to operate another nation within the Nigerian state and to deny justice to those who truly deserve justice. The cardinal responsibility of Government to protect the lives and property of the citizens is sacrosanct and must not be sacrificed on the altar of religious convenience. As it stands today, there is no single prosecution record of any criminal who killed under the pretence of blasphemy in Nigeria despite the number of victims and incontrovertible facts showing that those killings were done in daylight and mostly by persons who live within the communities where these heinous crimes were committed. The act of condoning crass criminality in the name of blasphemy deserves greater attention and broader treatment in this era of transforming the mindset of the citizens to work toward progressive change”.

Suspected. Not guilty until proven so.

The Nigerian police should be alive to their responsibilities, the religious leaders and traditional rulers in the north have great roles to play in ending this ugly trend.

so unfortunate, but if they avoid the court of land they will surely not avoid the court of God; no evil can go unpunished IJN

Mtchew,set of confuse people. ... The only solution Is for us to split in this damn country

Davincci said...

This is just a pity as it is not getting the kind of publicity it should be getting. Every single media house in Nigeria should be talking about this, the audacious sense of entitlement of the northern Muslim N their assumed sense on entitlement rightly or wrongly is alarming. D truth is the northern Muslim elites are secret sympathisers of these evil doers hence nothing will ever happen to them and they knw it. How can u release such barbarians? In 2016? This nation indeed belongs to the Northern muslim.. smh**

I blame it on the NPF. Nonsense! Linda take note!

Ayo Lawson said...

The idea was to lock them up briefly, allow things cool down then release. That suggests people were sympathetic to the culprit! But who? I think significant Muslims will be sympathetic to them. The problem is not really that! Is Buhari in any way Sympathetic to this grave insolence!? Let those people no matter what be re arrested, jailed for life or a modestly agreeable number years! Let the input of our President be felt. If not sorry, your president nah terroriest !!!!

Eze Chinyere said...

This issue should be treated as murder case cos that exactly what it is.

Not surprised!

@Anonymous 4:29PM but they have been in jail since na. They only released them just now after investigations that found them not guilty because of lack of evidence

Anonymous said...

The case should be transfered to ECOWAS court and ICC because this is getting too much. Nonsense!

The way this case is going, no christian will vote for Buhari in 2019. When christians refuse to vote for Buhari, i want to see how these muslim bigots will be misbehaving. They feel because their muslim brother is president, they can behave anyhow as they like. Lets see if any christian will vote for their brother again. Rubbish!

These muslim fanatics are really destroying this country. They wanted to build a film village that will bring development and tourism into the country, they refused because of muslim religion. They want to pass a bill of gender equality, they refused because of muslim religion. The want to stop 9 year old child marraige, they refused because of muslim religion. Buhari should please seperate religious laws from Nigerian laws because muslim religion is not only the religion practiced in this country. Otherwise, Nigeria should just divide into two so that muslims can go their own way while christians go their own way because we are tired of their babaric behaviour of killing and backwardness. Nigeria needs to move forward!

But i thought they said there was no concrete evidence that's why they were released?
