Over 700 priests in Kaduna on Thursday participated in a peaceful protest over the killing of Reverend Father Vitus Borogo last Saturday in Kaduna.
Speaking after the burial of Reverend Father Borogo, the Archbishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Most Reverend Matthew Ndagoso, lamented the rising insecurity in the country and how the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed Nigerians.
Some of the inscription written on the placard says “Stop killing us, Rape must stop, we are tired of insecurity among others.
Borogo, who was the Chaplain of the Catholic Community at Kaduna Polytechnic, was killed on his farm at Kujama in Chikun Local Government Area of the state and Ndagoso said President Buhari needs to act before its too late.
He said “Most Nigerians cannot afford three meals a day as things get worse under President Buhari. The issue of insecurity in the country needs urgent attention as I have buried priests recently.
“The time has come for the government to establish state police in order 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,” he said on Channels TV.
