Catholic Bishops of the Owerri Ecclesiastical Province has raised alarm on the height of insecurity in the country and enjoined Christians to watch and pray.
The bishops made this Known in a nine-point pastoral statement issued at Sacred Heart Pastoral Retreat Centre, Orlu. Stating that, government’s silence over infringements at various levels and shady land deals by certain community leaders is very pathetic.
They said, the news of kidnapping, raping, maiming, extorting, land-grabbing, killing and destroying people’s sources of livelihood makes the masses to lose hope in those elected into public office.
They, however, urged Nigeria security agents to protect citizens as expected and as enshrined in the Constitution.
