Country Director for GPF Nigeria, John Oko explained that, “In the course of our work and interactions with various communities, they expressed a serious lack of confidence in the Security Agencies’ abilities to offer justice on many occasions. The forum was therefore aimed at serving as a confidence-building mechanism through the interactive session between the communities and the security agencies.”

Barr. Solomon Musa, President of SOKAPU and Chairman of the Southern Kaduna Peace and Reconciliation Committee urged leaders to be “mindful of their utterances” to avoid making statements that could incite violence among their followers. He thanked the security agencies for their commitment, duty and sacrifices, as well as  challenging them to ensure that they always carry out their duties with fairness to win the confidence of the communities they serve.
