Herdsmen Killings Targeted At Christians – Anglican Bishop
The Anglican Bishop, Diocese on the Niger, Rt. Rev’d Owen Nwokolo, has alleged that the killings by suspected herdsmen in the country is targeted at Christians.
Rev’d Nwokolo also called on Nigerian leaders to quickly tackle the issue, just as they should pay attention to their spiritual health.
The cleric noted this on Sunday during the consecration of four new bishops and presentation of archbishops at the All Saints Cathedral in Onitsha, Anambra State.
According to him, “Our leaders should not pretend that they do not hear or see the cries in the faces of the people. There are killings, maiming and sacking of people from their various communities in Nigeria.
“Christians in the country have been subjected to killings that have never been witnessed in Nigeria by people hiding under the name of herdsmen; that is not proper and acceptable.
“Leaders in Nigeria seem to have abandoned their relationship with God, but I am here today urging them to take seriously their relationship with God as he is capable of solving all the problems militating against their administration.”
