Mamza also called on government to fish out those behind burning of four churches in Sagal community in Maiha local government area of the state and bring them to book

"CAN wishes to state in unequivocal terms, that violent elements are easily emboldened and fueled by unguarded statements and utterances.We call on government to work around the Justice Adamu Hobong (Rtd) administrative committee of inquiry set up to unravel the immediate and remote courses of farmers/herdsmen crisis in the state. We equally call for implementation of the previous committees reports by the state government," the CAN chairman said.
