Religious Violence: ‘Stop these unnecessary killings in Southern Kaduna,’ Catholic Bishop tells FG

Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama

The Federal Government, security agents and other relevant bodies has been called on to put an end to religious killings in Nigeria.

Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama has issued a statement concerning the increasing cases of religious killings in Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria.

According to the the President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), these killings prove that people no longer care about the importance of human lives, News Express reports.

He asked, “For how long will killings, associated with demented or irrational reasoning continue to be witnessed, especially in Southern Kaduna before a concerted effort is made to stop such carnage permanently. When will one Nigerian life matter or must people be killed in thousands or millions before we realise the humongous damage done to our people.

We are becoming so sadistic that we do not see that such brutality creates a culture of impunity, chaos, anarchy and doom; as if the needless killing by Boko Haram is not enough. A culture is developing that does not seem to know the difference between the lives of human beings and that of cows, goats, rams, chickens.’’
