Herdsmen killing: Nigeria is bleeding – Gov. Dickson tells FG
Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson has lamented the incessant killings in the country.
The governor cried out that innocent Nigerians were being slaughtered remorselessly and mercilessly on a daily basis without getting justice from the Government.
Dickson said that anyone who denied a fellow human justice was less than human.
News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that he said this in reaction to the wanton killings in Nigeria.
The Governor spoke during a special church service in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital on Sunday.
The church service organized to pray for the peace of the country also had the presence of a former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon.
He called for prayers for the country to surmount all its challenges.
“In this country, God’s children, human beings irrespective of the God they worship are being slaughtered mercilessly, remorselessly in many parts of the country.
“Our nation is bleeding; we must unite in prayers and resolve to do what is right and fair.
“Our nation should be a nation of fairness, justice, equity, equal citizenship and united by common ideals of being the greatest black nation.
“We are united by our common shared humanity and nationality, so injustice and unfairness anywhere should be a concern to anyone and everyone in our nation.
“I join you in praying that the bloodletting, unnecessary killings in our nation under any shape or guise ends in Jesus name.
“God should intervene so that people will feel the need to do the right thing, be fair and just to one another.
“Anyone who denies his fellow man justice is less human than his victim because what qualifies us humans created in the image of God is our belief in doing what is right and just.
“So, I call for a just, egalitarian, fair Nigeria where everyone is proud to call his or her country. No one should play the ostrich,” he stated.
