Kola Edokpayi, a human rights activist and speaker at Talakawa’s Parliament, an Edo civil society group, has called out Men of God for their silence as Nigeria is ravaged by terrorism.
The activist took to social media and wrote:
“Nigeria is presently the heartbeat of insecurity in the world. During the era of President Goodluck Jonathan, the rate of insecurity was not high as it is today, but some many prominent Pastors led protest against insecurity and corruption.”
“Today the Men of God who were constant in criticizing and protesting against GEJ are now maintaining grave silence in the midst of terrorism and kidnapping ravaging the entire country.
“Kudos to the Imam who used the Islamic pulpit to speak truth to power. All hands must be on deck to kill banditry and kidnapping before they finally killed and consigned the people to the dustbin of history.
“I want to use this medium to call on the Men of God to lead protest against insecurity in Nigeria. We are sick and tired of killings and kidnapping in Bongo”
