Prelate blasts South-East governors … For not taking a common stand on Fulani herdsmen’s atrocities in Nimbo, Enugu State

The Anglican Bishop of Egbu, Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, has condemned the governors of South-East for not taking a common stand on the atrocities of Fulani herdsmen in Ukpabi Nimbo in Nsukka and the arrest of 76 citizens of Ugwueshi all in Enugu State after the herdsmen’s cattle had destroyed their crops.
The bishop made the remark at Emmanuel Anglican Church, Upe Na Umunam in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of Imo State during a Eucharistic service.
He advised the governors to convene an emergency meeting to address the new security issue because, according to him, nobody could predict the next target of the herdsmen.
The bishop described President Buhari’s order on the Inspector-General of  Police (IGP) and the Chief of Defence Staff to round up culprits as ‘medicine after death” as the people alerted the security agencies before the attack.
Bishop Okorafor lamented that the average Igboman has lukewarm attitude to happenings around him, insisting that the killings might not be unconnected with the agenda and mission of Muslims to intimidate and Islamize the Christian communities in the country.
The bishop praised the Administrator and Vicar of the church, Rev. Can. Solomon Azuwike and wife, Mrs Chinedum, church workers and the congregation for fishing out the candidates for confirmation and admission.
In his sermon, the Bishop’s Chaplain, Rev. Progress Okoroafor, assured members of the congregation that they would receive whatever they faithfully asked from God.
