Ekiti state governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has commiserated with the Catholic Church of Nigeria, government and people of Anambra state as well as families of victims of the St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Anambra state killings, describing the killers as wicked and devilish.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Governor Fayose called on the police and other security agencies to carry out thorough investigation on the killings with a view to bring the perpetrators to book.
The governor said: “Killing fellow human beings is devilish, not to talk of killings in the house of God. I condemn the Ozubulu murder in its entirety.”
While calling for values reorientation in the country, Governor Fayose said “it is time for us as a nation to have another look at our moral values. Where did we get it so wrong that we now kill one another at will?
“Boko Haram killings in the North East, Badoo killings in Lagos, Fulani herdsmen killings across the country, ritual killings everywhere, and now drug war, what’s wrong with us as a people? Why is it that we no longer value human lives?
“I think there is urgent need for leaders of this country to take the issue of moral values reorientation of the citizens seriously.”
