Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBNC) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over the recent killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen in the country.
The CBCN made the call in a communique signed by its President, Most Rev. Augustine Akubeze, and Secretary, Most Rev. Camillus Umoh, on Thursday evening.
More than 19 persons, including two priests, were killed by suspected herdsmen in separate attacks on Gwer East and Guma areas of the state on Tuesday.
The armed men reportedly stormed the St. Ignatius’ Catholic Church during an early morning mass, killing the priests and others members.
“When will this barbarism end?” the bishops condemned the increasing attacks by the suspected herdsmen, whom they said had turned Nigeria into a massive graveyard.
