Priests, Sisters Protests Killing Of Enugu People By Fulani Herdsmen

As shared by Eneh Victor......

Enough is Enough.
Ranch ur cattle or get out of Enugu state protest.

Holy Ghost Enugu shut down as Catholics demand Fulani 
herdsmen to ranch their cattle or get out of Enugu state.

All the Catholics in Enugu state today stormed the Holy Ghost 
Cathedral Enugu to protest the killings, murder, rape, 
destruction and massacre of ndi Enugu and destruction 
of their farm lands by Fulani herdsmen.

The protesting Catholics were led by Bishop Onaga, 
all the Catholic priests and sisters.

The protest which was to take off from Holy Ghost Cathedral 
Ogbete Enugu, to govt house Enugu was rather restricted to 
the premises of the Cathedral when the state Governor, 
Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi Ugwuanyi, Deputy Governor, 
Cecilia Ezeilo and other govt officials came to the Cathedral to address them.

Addressing the crowd numbering over 10,000 persons, 
Bishop Onaga asked also the state, local govt and traditional 
leaders in Enugu state who are negotiating or have negotiated 
with Fulani herdsmen to cancel such negotiation as nothing 
other than ranching will be acceptable.

The Bishop called on the National Assembly to 
withdraw and grazing bill currently before it. 
He equally asked the state govt of Enugu state not to 
consider any grazing bill in the state.

The Catholic Bishop therefore reiterated that the church 
will do everything to maintain mutual peace in every part of the country.
