A Nigerian Policeman and suspected armed bandits have been spotted praying together somewhere in the Northern part of Nigeria.
The photo has sparked controversy as Nigerians wondered if the so-called security agents of the country is pallying with the ‘enemy’ or shielding them from being apprehended.
It is no longer news that many Northerners especially Christians have lost their lives due to the crisis rocking Southern Kaduna, Borno and Katsina States.
Over 200 persons have been killed and many displaced as a result of the havoc wreaked by the suspected bandits and the Police have been silent on the identity of the perpetrators or the motivations behind the attacks.
However, after many peace talks and resolutions, Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Thursday inaugurated a 22-member interfaith group, known as ‘House of Kaduna Family’, at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House to find lasting peace in the state, especially in Southern Kaduna.
Members of the group comprise religious leaders as well as leaders of thought.
El-Rufai said diversity of faith should not be a reason for division and violent conflict across the state.
The governor stated, “The decision to gather leaders of faith in a joint endeavour for peace and harmony in our state reflects our belief that religion does not have to divide.
“The diversity of faith can be a vehicle for unity when adherents respect the right of every human being to life, liberty and livelihood as creatures of God.”
