Killings of Christians in South Eastern part of Nigeria

President Buhari, please, stop the Military from the on-going “Operation Python Dance II (Egwu Eke II)”. Many innocent and unarmed civilians are alleged to have either been killed, injured or intimidated by the Military in the South Eastern part of Nigeria. Please, President Buhari, call the Military to order by initiating an inquiry into the alleged killings and intimidation, and also bringing the culprits to face the consequences of their crimes against God and humanity. May God help you, Mr. President, to do right the right thing now. God, help your people!

On Human Life and pro-Biafra Protest

Human life is sacred and the greatest gift from God. The pro-Biafra Protest revolves around life and fundamental choice. CLI condemns all extrajudicial killings and perversion of justice by the Nigerian Government. President Buhari should have dialogue with the pro-Biafra leaders especially IPOB. That is the right thing to do and show the change in words and practice.
