End Kidnapping and Killings – Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama tells FG

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, Ignatius Kaigama has called on the federal government to take proactive measures to curb kidnappings, violence, and unprovoked attacks in the country.

 

Kaigama was expressing his sadness over the failed promises by the government to protect its citizens and curb all acts of criminality when he made the plea.

 

The cleric said this on Sunday while expressing his pastoral solidarity on account of the security challenges faced due to attacks by “unknown gunmen” on the Igu community.

“During the last attack, some of your members and those of the community were kidnapped and a violent attempt was also made on the priest in the parish house. It is sad that despite the promises of the government to ensure the safety of its citizens, these heinous acts of criminality continue to fester in different communities across the nation.

“Proactive measures must be taken once and for all to bring such ugly situations under control. We pray for the conversion of those involved in perpetuating such dastardly acts, just as we also pray for the safety and quick release of all who are held in captivity by the criminal elements.”

“The cloud of despair hovers over us with the ugly incidences of kidnapping, violence, and unprovoked attacks such as the cases in Nasarawa, Benue, Southern Kaduna, Southern Taraba, and in different parts of the country. Our assurance as Christians is that as with the two disciples on their way to Emmaus, Jesus Christ is deeply concerned about us; He never allows us to suffer alone.”
