Catholic Bishops in Nigeria are not satisfied with President Muhammadu Buhari’s remarks concerning the herdsmen killings in Benue state.

 

 

Director, Social Communications at the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Fr. Chris Anyanwu who commented on behalf of the catholic bishops said the president’s democracy day remarks as regards the herdsmen killings was unfortunately vague and evasive.

 

 

“It is unacceptable to the Church that President Muhammadu Buhari simply made a vague reference to the killer herdsmen in his Democracy Day Speech.

 

 

“There is the issue of the recent attack on a Minor Seminary in Jalingo which happened a day before he addressed the nation but he did not even reference that incident.

 

 

“We find his promise to bring the killer herdsmen to full wrath of the law as evasive and the Catholic Church is not comfortable with that. We had hoped to hear him tell the nation that the murderous herdsmen have been arrested and being made ready for prosecution,” he said.
