The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has accused some Muslim leaders of promoting violence and religious crisis.

They have also warned that no religion has a monopoly on violence, cautioning various faiths to be mindful of their actions and utterances.

In a statement on Tuesday, Daramola alerted the public that extremists have been plotting to throw the already nervous country into utter confusion.

The scribe observed that all over the country, actions are being taken by some Islamic leaders to provoke their Christian counterparts to anger.

“No religion has a monopoly of violence, hence, Christian leaders continue to caution faithful against provocative actions against other religions or citizens wherever they live as Jesus Christ taught us”, Joseph Daramola, CAN General Secretary said.

Daramola said in Kwara State, CAN is still trying to curb the violence occasioned by the Governor’s directive to mission’s schools to allow the wearing of the hijab.

The apex religious organisation asked if Islamic schools would allow Catholics or Christian women who are their students to dress to school premises in their cassocks.

“Some extremists have built Ummul Khair Central Mosque and Islamic Centre beside Catholic Bishop’s House and the Secretariat primarily to tempt peace-loving Christians into a religious crisis”, CAN companies.

Daramola said the claim by Imam Abubakar Ali-Agan and the General Manager, Kwara Physical Planning Authority, that there was a Memorandum of Understanding between the Catholic Bishop of Ilorin and the owners of the Ummul Khair Central Mosque regarding the buildings, was falsehood.

CAN advised Muslim leaders to stop fishing in troubled waters to provoke Christians with whom they share the same neighbourhood.

Daramola urged security agencies to caution and prevent any group of people whose actions can lead to religious and social crises and violence in Nigeria.
