The Christian Association of Nigeria has blamed Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara state of playing the ostrich, while Christians are ”being violently abused and attacked” in the state he heads.

CAN in a statement issued after a clash between Christians and Muslims in Ilorin following a dispute on rocking of hijab by Muslim students in government aided Christian schools, declared the Governor’s pronouncement on wearing of hijab in Christian schools as being in violation of a court’s directive on the matter.

The Christian body also stated that Governor AbdulRazaq should be held responsible should any damage be done to any church or anyone be injured on the matter.

The statement read;

“We learnt that the State Government has ordered the reopening of the closed schools without resolving the crisis.

“Consequently, churches and mission schools are being vandalised with impunity by the hoodlums banking on the state government’s support in the pretext of enforcing the policy.

”Some innocent Christians are being violently abused and attacked under the watch of the Governor who is playing ostrich. Because it was his pronouncement on the issue of hijab wearing in violation of the court directive on the matter to maintain status quo until the matter is finally resolved by the court that led to this trouble.

“If any damage is done to any church or anyone is injured on this matter, the Governor of Kwara State will be held responsible. It is disheartening and unfortunate that a government that was installed democratically will become insensitive to the plight and the yearning of the people.

”As if the governor was voted into the office primarily to protect his own religion. This is unfair, ungodly and reprehensible.

”There are public schools and schools that belong to some Islamic organisations where those who wanted to be wearing hijab can be attending without causing the ongoing needless crisis rocking the state.”
