AUN-API condemns attack on Adamawa communities, calls for peace and tolerance

American University of Nigeria, AUN

The AUN-Adamawa Peace Initiative has condemned in the strongest terms the recent invasion and killing of innocent people in some Adamawa communities.

In a statement by its President, Margee Ensign, the AUN-API sympathized with families of the victims and prayed that they bear their losses with fortitude.

“The unfortunate incident which took place on Sunday, January 24, has created unnecessary tension in areas where the insurgency left a legacy of mutual suspicion among members of the same community, a problem which AUN-API, in partnership with local and international mediation groups, is working to resolve,” Dr. Ensign, who is also AUN President, said.

She added, “AUN-API recommends that Governments and security personnel move to quickly douse tension in the communities where the violence occurred and ensure it does not spread.

“Those behind the killings must be found and made to face justice. Improved security will guarantee peace in the communities and restore confidence in the institutions of government among community members.

“AUN-API is asking the people of the affected communities not to take the law into their own hands but to cooperate with security agencies in restoring peace and safeguarding the neighborhood.

“We are urging communities to imbibe the culture of mutual tolerance and respect and to show love to one another in these difficult times.”
