Headline: AFRICA/NIGERIA – “Security of life and property can no longer be guaranteed in Nigeria” denounces the Bishop of Awka
Abuja – “Human beings are being slaughtered regularly by terrorists who are suspected to have targeted the Christians. Security of life and property can no longer be guaranteed in Nigeria”, said His Exc. Mgr. Paulinus Chukwuemeka Ezeokafor, Bishop of Awka, State of Anambra, in southern Nigeria, who made a call for the establishment of local and state security organs to tackle security challenges in all parts of the Country. The Bishop stressed that there are discrepancies between the various local security apparatuses, and recalled how two priests of the Catholic Diocese of Awka were kidnapped in Ondo State and were rescued, using the Anambra State Government’s security apparatus. This State – he stressed – is relatively safe, compared to other States of the Federation.
