Bishop of the Diocese of Ijebu South – West, Church of
Nigeria (Anglican Communion) , Reverend Babatunde
Ogunbanwo , says the President , Major General
Muhammadu Buhari ( retd . ) , has failed Nigerians .
Ogunbanwo made this declaration on Friday in his
bishop charge during the first session of the fourth
synod of the Diocese in Odogbolu , Ogun State.

killings in the country , especially in the Christian
dominated part of Kaduna State – Southern Kaduna .

clueless about insecurity challenges facing the
country . ”

He claimed the challenges of insecurity in the country
had created fear in Nigerians , adding that the killing of

The bishop , however , called on the Federal

lasting solution to the resurgence of attacks by killer
herdsmen , bandits , armed robbers and other security

He said , “ We are quite concerned about the spate of
unwanted killings going on in the Christian dominated
Southern Kaduna , in Kaduna State.
“ It is so sad that this cycle of unprovoked violence and
destruction of human lives and property have gone
unchecked for many years without much intervention
from Nigeria ’ s security units, Kaduna State
( Government) and Federal Government.
“ From the look of things , it is becoming clear that the
perpetrators of these murderous acts are on a mission
of genocide and ethnic cleansing. The government has
so far failed to prove to us that it is willing to bring a
permanent end to this persisting carnage .
“ The Christians of Southern Kaduna and the
indigenous ethnic nationalities in that part of the
country , like all other Nigerians , have a God- given right
to live in safety and enjoy the blessings God has
bestowed on their land without any fear of molestation
and threat to their lives.
President Buhari has approved the extension of the eased lockdown-
government and its agencies saddled with the security
of the citizens of this country to defend and protect all
those in that part of our nation from their predators .
“ We call on the Federal Government, led by President
Muhammdu Buhari , to wake up from its deep slumber
and end this bloodbath just as he promised he would
do if elected . The international community too should
not continue to keep quiet over the security situation
in Nigeria , especially as it has to do with the targeted
killing of defenseless Christians and decimation of
Christian communities . ”
