The Director General of the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR), Professor Oshita Oshita, has condemned, in strong terms, the alleged killings of some persons at Talata-Mafara community in Zamfara State and Unguwan Anjo in Kaduna State.

Oshita, who described the killings as sheer acts of impunity and convoluted reasoning unjustifiable by Islam and Christianity, both being religions of peace, enjoined the Muslim Ummah and Christian faithful to condemn extremism in all its forms and support the efforts of the federal government to build peace, love and tolerance.

In a press statement by his Media Assistant, Abu Michael, the Director General expressed regrets over the inciting activities of religious extremists which have led to the unwarranted death of innocent Nigerians.

He said the common enemy of all Nigerians is poverty and unemployment, adding that only a united population can allow for the reconstruction of the nation’s economy, create wealth and jobs for the youth.
