The murder of Fr. John Mark Cheitnum, a member of the Clergy of Nigeria’s Kafanchan Diocese, reflects “a failed state and also a failed country”, a Catholic Priest has said.
The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the failure of the Nigerian authorities to bring religious extremists targeting innocent Christians to book, and prayed for a government that does not treat criminals in the country “with kid gloves”.
The Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan in Nigeria has announced the “gruesome murder” of Fr. John Mark Cheitnum who kidnapped on July 15 alongside Fr. Denatus Cleopas, the latter having safely escaped from his captors.
