The chairman of Green Horizon, Prof Muhammad Tasiu, has disclosed that no fewer than 30,000 people have been killed and two million others exposed to various trauma, as a result of boko haram activities in the North-east.
Tasiu gave the statistics in Yola on Friday, at the one day Inter-Religious Dialogue for Peaceful Coexistence, organised by PCNI, for stakeholders to fashion out ways to address the increasing wage of religious crisis in the region.
He noted that it is imperative for clergy men to spread the gospel of fast tracking dialogue as a tool for addressing perceived disagreement for national cohesion development.
He urged religious bodies to be at the forefront of stemming religious conflicts, through honest and sincere teachings, true Christianity and Islam doctrines.
The chairman, PCNI, Lt Gen Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma, (rtd) said mending the strain of relationships among communities affected by insurgency attacks to restore a means of livelihood is the major priority of the initiative.
The chairman, represented by Tijjani Tumsa, in his determination to ensure enhancement and deployment of community mechanisms for peace building, urged state holders to replicate the knowledge of the workshop at the grassroots.
The PCNI has trained a total of 1,020 people comprising of 80 traditional rulers, 60 Imams, and 30 lower court and Sharia Court judges in each state of the North-east.
