Catholic Bishops Friday meet Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan at a closed-door at the Presidential Villa warning him of an impending danger in Nigeria over the spade of terrorists activities in the country.
President of the conference, Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama, who led his colleagues to the meeting said they are disturbed that parts of Nigeria’s territory are being taken away with so many people displaced.
“I just feel that things are not right, territorially our land is being taken away, the people who we look after, their homes and shelters are being captured making them refugees in their home land.
“There are families that are stranded and we felt Mr President should know, as a Catholic church we have a good structure of taking relief, we want the government to collaborate with us to help these victims” he added.
The Archbishop therefore called on the government to lend their support in helping these displaced victims.
The President gave the bishops the assurance that the security situation in the country will be given priority by his administration and that terrorism will not last long.
Terrorists have continued to occupy territories in the North-eastern parts of Nigeria and killing and displacing hundreds who have been forced in the various internally displaced camps.
