Insecurity: Catholic Bishops to march in Abuja, faithful to protest on Ash Wednesday - ITREALMS

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has concluded plans to protest the incessant insecurity in the country, reports ITREALMS.

In a Catholic bulletin made available to 
ITREALMS, the Bishops in a latest trend, directed that the earlier proposed nationwide peaceful protest March planned for Ash Wednesday Feb 26, 2020 by the Catholic Bishops' conference of Nigeria, would now hold only in Abuja.

"The peaceful protest march will take place but only in Abuja during the Catholic Bishops conference of Nigeria gathering between March 1 to March 6, 2020," according to the Chancellor Archdiocese of Benin City, Rev Fr Mike Oyanoafoh.

He also hinted that during the conference, all the Bishops will lead the March with priests, religious and lay faithful of Abuja Archdiocese and those who can join them.

He noted however that Catholics in other dioceses in the country are expected to observe the abstinence and fasting on Ash Wednesday February 26, 2020.

In addition, he said, "put on black clothing or wear a black arm band to signify that we are mourning all victims of kidnapping, banditry, and incessant killings of our people as well as registering our peaceful protest without a march."
