Bishop Godfrey Igwebuike Onah, Catholic Bishop of Nsukka Diocese in Enugu State, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari's administration of willfully destroying Nigeria.



Onah bemoaned how violence, corruption, and other vices had established culture and custom in this part of the world in response to the gruesome murder of a student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State for suspected blasphemy.

The clergyman, who is outraged by the reality in the country, expressed sadness over the attacks on Bishop Mathew Kuka of the Sokoto Diocese.

Kuka's residence was reportedly stormed a few days ago following Muslim protests in portions of Sokoto State over the arrest of suspected assassins of the 200-level student, according to Naijacrawl.

Bishop Onah lamented how Kuka, who is the voice of the poor northerners, is now the target of attack due to religious extremism.

He said, “My dear friends, I must be honest with you today. I would have preferred to lock myself up in my chapel to pray and to weep for my nation where darkness has descended."
To weep and pray for my church that is being folded out of existence in the world and Nigeria, to weep and pray for Deborah Samuel, who was killed because she found herself in a part of the country where she thought was a home but not.
“To weep and pray for our friend and brother, Bishop Mathew Kuka, the world-acclaimed voice of the voiceless, who has become a target by the same voiceless people who now see him as part of their problem rather than part of their solution."
To weep and to pray for the poor miserable murderers of Deborah who have been left uneducated and unemployed deliberately so that they can be brainwashed and instrumentalized for the political end by religious bigots and political egoists.
To weep and to pray for our political leaders, under whose watch the country has crumbled, and they look for who to blame for the mess in which they have put all of us.
I would have preferred not to be standing before you here now telling you about love, the liturgy of today to reflect on the essence and meaning of Christianity, the love we should have for one another.
But how can you preach love in a country where violence has become the rule? In a country where corruption has become a norm and tradition, where impunity has become law, where the government feels so helpless that it is now appealing to religious leaders to talk to non-state actors not to make the security situation in our country worse. Those were the words of the Vice President when he spoke to all the bishops of the Catholic Church in West Africa”.
