Catholics take to the streets to protest bad governance, incessant killings

Barring any last minute changes, members of the Catholic all over Nigeria would take to the streets of  today to register their anger at the alarming rate of insecurity and alleged bad governance in Nigeria.

It is expected that holding simultaneously around the country will reawaken government consciousness to socio-economic and political decadence, as well as insecurity in the country.

It was gathered that the Abuja peaceful procession/protest will start from the National Ecumenical Center and terminate at Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Catholic Church, Garki.

A statement by the Secretary General of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN), Rev. Fr. Ralph Madu, said the protest is mainly to honour two catholic priests and other faithful who were killed last month in a Catholic Church in Benue State, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

In Lagos, Catholics from over 170 parishes in the state will converge on St Leo’s Catholic Church Ikeja today to begin a massive protest and prayers against the incessant killings of innocent persons in the country.

Most Catholics who spoke to newsreportersng.com, said that the protest is not a violent protest, but a peaceful and prayerful one that is expected to have the much desired impact.
