The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has described Nigerian leaders as heartless for not taking serious action against criminal elements destroying lives and properties across the country.
Kukah, who said this while delivering homily during the burial of Fr, Alphonsus Bello who was killed by assailants during an attack on May 21 at the Catechetical Training School, Malumfashi in Katsina State.
Kukah berated President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for failing to protect lives of Nigerian citizens.
He said, “Those who govern us are allowing this killing of citizens because they have no blood in their hearts.
“There is nowhere in the whole world that citizens can be slaughtered without the government showing empathy and concern. The continuous barbaric slaughter of our people in their innocence suggests that our beautiful Presidential Villa, National Assembly and government houses are not moving with civilisation.
“How did Nigeria come to this tragic situation? We know who they are, whom they believe in and where their inspiration comes from. But the government has never declared the kidnappers a terrorist group.”
