Bishop Stephen Manza of the Catholic Bishop of Adamawa Diocese, has disclosed that President Buhari’s administration has failed in the protection of lives and property of Nigerians
The clergyman spoke in response to the killing of the Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, Chairman for Michika local government area of Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi, by the insurgents.
According to news source Dailypost.ng, he challenged the federal government on the security of Nigerians by saying “Government should stop fooling Nigerians and tell them the truth of the security situation in the country.”
“Let no one be deceived. Boko Haram is still strong…who can travel between Michika and Maiduguri without using escort?”
According to the Adamawa state Chairman of CAN, “It is unfortunate that Andimi was killed when negotiations were still ongoing to free the reverend gentleman even as at Sunday, January 19.”
The Catholic Bishop lamented, “They sent a photo. There was a video but it is too gruesome to be shown” publicly, adding that the insurgents demanded £2 million as ransom to free Andimi but only N50 million could be raised, which they still rejected.
