Police IG Ibrahim Idris has faulted the Christian Association of Nigeria on the number of people killed in the Southern Kaduna crises.
The Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan had alleged that the conflicts in the area had claimed over 808 lives, in 53 villages.
But Idris does not agree with the cleric, even though he did not state what he believes is the actual number of those killed in the clashes.
Speaking at the new year dinner organised by the Nigeria Police, the police boss cautioned Nigerians to avoid unnecessary tension which could lead to destruction of lives and property.
He said Nigerians had no other country than Nigeria, hence the need to do those things that would bring peace and unity to the country.
Idris advised Nigerians to live in peace with one another in spite of religious and ethic differences.
He commended officers and men of the force for their commitment to providing security to all Nigerians across the country.
Idris restated his men’s commitment to providing adequate security without bias to any section of the country.
