Over 700 Catholic priests protest at burial of Fr Vitus Borogo

Hundreds of Catholic priests protested insecurity in the country as their colleague, Rev. Fr. Vitus Borogo, who was k!lled by terrorists was buried in Kaduna.

During the burial, over 700 Catholic priests held a peaceful protest.The priests held placards with words like: “Anyone who k!lled lost his/her right to life” and “we are priests not t€rrorists.”

Speaking at the Our Lady of Apostle Catholic Church, Archbishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Most Reverend Matthew Ndagoso, lamented the rising insecurity in the country.

He stated that Nigeria has become a failed state under President Muhammadu Buhari due to the country’s security condition.

He said Nigerians live in perpetual fear and have become hopeless due to the rising attacks and k!llings, while the Federal Government seems to be incapacitated to tackle the problem.

The Bishop called on the government to establish state police to protect the vulnerable communities against bandits attacks since those saddled with the responsibility of protecting the lives and property of the citizens have failed to do so.
