Benue Killings: You must resign now, Catholic Bishops tells Buhari

The Catholic Bishops' Conference (CBCN) has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office over the failure of his administration to provide security of lives and properties.  

                 

The CBCN made the call in a statement issued in the wake of Tuesday's murder of two Catholic priests and 15 parishioners by Fulani herdsmen in Mbalom, Benue. 

 

Jointly signed by Most Reverend Augustine Akubeze and Most Reverend Camillus Umoh, CBCN President and Secretary respectively, the statement said for over two years, the Bishops have consistently asked President to Buhari to re-look the configuration of the country's security agencies, which it said are deliberately placed in the hands of the adherents of only one religion.READ MORE
