The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has condemned the killings at Nindem village, Kaduna during Christmas carol.

An unidentified gunman killed four people and injured eight others in the attack that occurred Friday night.

MURIC described the killings as gruesome, barbaric and ungodly, while beckoning on security agencies to stop killings in Kaduna.

The group director, Professor Ishaq Akintola in a statement on Monday further called for peace between Christians and Muslims to ensure Nigeria’s unity and political stability.

The statement read: “Nothing in the divine scriptures teaches the shedding of human blood. In particular, people who are in devotion deserve special respect no matter the venue chosen for such religious exercise.

“We charge the security agencies to rise to the occasion and bring the endless bloodbath in Kaduna State to an end.

“In the meantime MURIC seizes the opportunity of the yuletide to wish Nigerian Christians a Merry Christmas. It is our fervent wish that the relationship between us and our Christian neighbours continues to improve.

“We all need peace to go about our individual businesses. We therefore extend a hand of friendship to our neighbours.

“In our concluding remarks, we urge all citizens to pray for Nigeria’s unity, political stability and economic buoyancy. We must also pray for enduring peace and work consciously towards achieving it.”
