The Catholic Mission in Nigeria has organised a nationwide prayer and peaceful protest against incessant killings and attacks in some region of the country.
The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Alfred Adewale Martins, in a telephone interview with Channels Television on Tuesday said the protest is in line with the directive from the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria.
The Archbishop said members are urged to partake in the exercise in supplication to God. He added that the protest is also in solidarity with those killed in Benue State, including two Catholic priests who were brutally murdered during mass.
The peaceful protest coincides with the burial of the 17 church members and the two priests killed during a mass in Benue State.
