The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, said Nigeria has become a “massive killing field” as government and the governed look on helplessly.

He said the nation’s predicament reminded him of Israel’s situation that led to the death of Eli, the great high Priest of Israel.

Kukah said this in his 2021 Easter message titled: “Before our glory departs” on Sunday.

“Taunted by Boko Haram, ravaged by bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers and other merchants of death across the nation, there is collective fear as to whether Nigeria’s glory is about to depart!

“Retired military and intelligence officers lament over what has become of their glorious profession as they watch the humiliation of our military personnel. Traumatised citizens are tortured daily by bandits.

“A thick and suffocating cloud of desperation, despondency, desolation, gloom, and misery hangs in the hot air. We have no message and have no idea how long this will last.

“Our people seek solace and protection, but frustration and darkness threaten to drown them. Is their government on AWOL?”

Kukah concluded as Nigeria’s troubles are growing by the day, the citizens should intensify their prayers.
