The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has demanded the arrest of the members of the alleged Christian militia that reportedly killed 22 unarmed Muslim travellers in Rukuba, Jos, Plateau State, on Saturday.

In reaction to the killings that claimed the lives of the 22 Muslims, MURIC, in a statement signed by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, demanded the immediate arrest ofthe perpetrators of the crime.

The statement read: “Twenty two (22) unarmed Muslim travellers were brutally killed by a Christian militia group at Rukuba, Jos, Plateau State, today, Saturday, 14th August, 2021,”

“They must be brought to justice. They ran away from the crime scene when they saw security men approaching. But they had participated in the killing of twenty two (22) and wounding of fourteen (14) before taking to their heels.

“It is not possible for the six who were arrested to have been the only attackers. Only six attackers could not have surrounded people who filled five buses. The rest must be fished out.

“We reject the crocodile tears and lies of Governors Lalong of Jos and Akeredolu of Ondo State who claimed that the attack was a case of mistaken identity.

“This excuse is the first sign of executive conspiracy. It is a shame that Akeredolu will trivialise the massacre of citizens of his own state simply because the victims happen to be Muslims. #Muslimlivesmatter.

“How can anybody say Muslims from Ikare in Ondo State were killed in such a large number due to ‘mistaken identity’? That is balderdash. It is unthinkable. Who do the Christian terrorists have the right to attack and kill for their pleasure and who should they spare? This kind of excuse has exposed the mentality of the two governors. They are shedding crocodile tears,”
