The Christian Association of Nigeria has hailed the military Joint Task Force for clamping down on the Boko Haram sect and reducing its attacks on innocent civilians in the North.

In a telephone interview with SUNDAY PUNCH, the Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake, said progress had been made in the fight against Boko Haram.

“The JTF has done their best and now we have the army there and it have done its best even though there are still killings going on, it’s been a while since we heard of large-scale bombing and other activities of Boko Haram. We salute their effort and we will continue to support them,” he said.

Asked if Christians in the North felt safer to go to their places of worship, Asake said they were glad with the relative quietness and hoped that the Boko Haram members would not regroup to continue their attacks.
