The Defence Headquarters has resolved to invite the Plateau state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Timothy Daluk to prove the allegation of complicit he preferred against the army over the recent attacks and killings in the state.
Director of Defence Media Operations, Major Gen.Edward Buba said this is give him room to substantiate the claims that military personnel were complicit in the attack and killings that took place between the 23rd and 24th of January in the area.
He said, “It is not unusual for emotions to cloud people’s judgment when they have been confronted with a very traumatizing experience.
“However, we would get to the bottom of his allegations after we have an audience with him.
“All the same, the military will continue to discharge its duties professionally and in line with the best international standards.”
Rev Daluk had accused the Nigerian military in a video of supervising the killings of Christians and the destruction of property in the state.
He had said: “I am here to report the situation happening in Mangu Local Government for the whole world to understand.
“What is happening in Mangu at this particular point in time, the military are the ones sending our people away for the militia to burn their houses.
“At this particular point in time, they have sent every Christian away from the new market. Thereby leaving the Muslims to come and burn their houses.
