Cleric blames herdsmen killings on Nigerian government’s silence


Vice President of the Apostolic Church, Nigeria, Segun Awojide, has criticized the Federal Government for being silent over the ongoing killings by suspected herdsmen across the country.

Awojide stated this yesterday during a press conference at the headquarters of the church during its 100th anniversary celebration.

Speaking on the killings by headsmen, he said, it was not the approach of the church to go around carrying placards on the streets in protest, adding that the church would rather stop the violence through prayers.

“We don’t preach politics but we pray for politicians. We are aware of the killing across the country by suspected herdsmen but we do not go into the streets to protest with placards, rather, we fight with our prayers because we believe in its efficacy.”

“The church would always stand to make its place known in the society, but the question is; has carrying of placards stopped the killings? The church does not control the security agencies whose responsibility it is to guard lives and property, it is the Federal Government, yet they have been more silent than the church.”
