The organization also called on every Christian parents across the country, especially Northern states, to discourage sending their children to any school in Sokoto State.
CAN said the directive to parents would continue, pending when the Federal and State governments would be ready and willing to secure the lives of its children both in Sokoto and other states that had been hostile to Christians and Christianity.

Also The Northern Governors’ Forum (NGF) has condemned the killing of Deborah Samuel Yakubu, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, on allegations of blasphemy.
While calling for calm, the chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, in a statement, yesterday, expressed the governor’s concern about the development, which was clearly an extrajudicial measure of addressing perceived infractions.
Lalong frowned at the adoption of self-help in addressing grievances, whether religious or otherwise, which he observed could only lead to further chaos that could threaten law and order as well as the general peace and security of the society.
