The nationwide prayer and peaceful protest organized by the Catholic church is currently taking place in many parts of the country. The Catholic Mission in Nigeria last week announced that the church would be holding a nationwide prayer and peaceful protest against incessant killings across the country.
The mission said the protest is in line with the directive from the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria. The protest is also in solidarity to those killed in Benue State, including two Catholic priests who were brutally murdered during mass in April.
