Kaduna, 30 June, 2022 / 10:20 am (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna in Nigeria has decried the deteriorating security in various parts of the West African nation, regretting the fact that “nobody is safe anywhere” in the country.
In an interview with the Pontifical charity foundation, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International that was reported Wednesday, June 29, Archbishop Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso said Christians in Nigeria are living in “fear and uncertainty” after the fatal shooting of one of his Priests, Fr. Vitus Borogo, on June 25.
“Everybody is on edge – all of us, the clergy, the laypeople, everybody. People are afraid, and rightly so. People are traumatized, and rightly so,” Archbishop Ndagoso told ACN.
He added, “With this situation, nobody is safe anywhere. If you go out of your house, even in the daytime, until you come back, you are not safe.”
Two Catholic Priests were killed in separate incidences in their respective Nigerian Dioceses, one in Kaduna Archdiocese on June 25, and the other in Auchi Diocese on June 26.
