Chief of Mutum-Biyu in Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State, Alhaji Sani Suleiman Duna has suggested that only dialogue would end the crisis in the state that has displaced many and even led to the death of many indigenes of the state.
The traditional ruler, who made this suggestion while receiving Catholic priests of Jalingo Diocese during a courtesy visit in his palace in Mutum-Biyu, called on the state government to implore dialogue as the only option that could end the crisis and ensure harmonious living.
Chief Duna, who assured that he would remain committed in ensuring that peace reigns in his domain at all times, wondered why some miscreants would want to cause trouble by using the names of Islam and Christianity to kill and destroy people’s property.
While condemning the unfortunate crisis that engulfed the state in recent past, the traditional ruler reiterated his resolve for peace and called on government to engage the warring parties in a dialogue to bring an end to the killings.
“There is no basis for Christians and Muslims to fight. Prophet Isa (Jesus Christ) is a factor in Islam and we respect and honour him. Those miscreants killing in the name of Islam are not representing Islam; they are the most dangerous human beings you can ever meet.”
The leaders of the delegation, Very Rev. Frs. George Dogo and Paul Kangkai had earlier condoled with Chief Duna over the death of his father and urged him to emulate his father who stood firm to ensure that peace reigned in his domain during his time.
