He said that the world is in  turmoil today because acceptable landmarks have been removed, explain that landmarks  are structures that demarcate boundaries for the purpose of peaceful co-existence and also to checkmate trespass on the right of inheritance.
According to the prelate, landmarks could also be monuments or memorials, such as buildings, heaps of stones or fences and walls to commemorate great events.
