Killings Can Be Stopped Before They Happen Through Intelligence Gathering, HEKAN President Tells Buhari, Security Chiefs
As Nigeria is still basking in the euphoria of celebrating it’s 60th independence anniversary, President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies have been tasked to up their game and prevent Killings from happening through intelligence gathering.
President of United Church Of Christ In Nations (UCCN) popularly known as HEKAN , Rev. Amos G. Kiri gave the charge on Sunday October 4, during the Ordination Service Of Newly Promoted Pastors in Kaduna.
“While commending the security agencies for their untiring efforts in contending with the evil perpetrators of these crimes, I urge you to be more vigilant, especially in intelligence gathering.
“Before an evil is committed, it is planned. Our intelligent officers must do more by nipping in the bud such evils at their planning stages.
“Few days ago, our blessed country celebrated her 60th anniversary as an independent country,” he said.
The HEKAN President congratulated the government and people of Nigeria for remaining together as a people these past 60 years.
“Congratulations to our President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, our state governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai and the entire good people of Nigeria.
“I say Happy Independence.This year’s joyful celebration however, is marred again by continuous attacks and killings of innocent Nigerians by either Boko Haram, Herdsmen killers, bandits or kidnappers,” he said.
He however, lamented that much blood is being shed everyday in the country.
“I therefore, add my voice to millions of lovers of this great nation to call on the government to intensify its efforts in the fight against these attacks and killings.
“This can only be successfully done through discreet intelligence gathering. Nigerians are tired of these killings. While we seek the face of God through prayers, we must also do our own part by eschewing bitterness and learning to live peacefully with each other.
“There will be no development without peace,” he stressed..
