The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has called for peaceful co-existence between Christians and Muslims for the stability and growth of the country.
The Adamawa state branch Chairman of CAN, Bishop Dami Mamza, urged faithful of the two religions not to fall to the antics of insurgents trying to create friction between the majority peace-loving members of the two faiths.
Mamza made the call in Yola, while receiving a delegation from President Muhammadu Buhari, led by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustafa.
The Federal Government delegation paid CAN a condolence visit over the death of Reverend Lawal Andimi, killed by Boko Haram insurgents and Reverend Denis Bagauri killed by suspected kidnappers in the state.
Mamza stressed the need for Christians and Muslims to unite and support security agencies in exposing bad eggs among their followers and others using religion to cause crisis.
While praying for the repose of the deceased, Mustafa urged the people to use the moment for sober reflection on ways to unite in finding a lasting solution to the security challenges.
