Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has come out to blast the rising cases of kidnapping, killings and attacks on clergymen and worship centres in Nigeria.

Okowa recently revealed this at a security seminar tagged “Securing worship centres and clergymen in contemporary Nigeria” in Asaba.

According to him, even if security agents are working hard to catch perpetrators of sinful crime, it is very important to equip church leaders and families with basic knowledge on personal security and safety at places of worship.

He added that while there has been no fatality recorded, the wicked trend cannot be allowed to continue.

His words, “Although no fatality has been recorded among abducted clergymen in Delta, yet this unholy trend calls for concern.”

“Given the turbulence and uncertainties that have plagued this nation in our recent political history, there is no gainsaying the fact that it is the prayer of the righteous that have kept this country together.”

“We have continued to bolster our security architecture to ensure that together with your prayers we win the battle against armed robbery, kidnapping, and all forms of criminality.

“As you may be aware, we recently inaugurated ‘Operation Delta Hawk’, a joint task force with the mandate to take the fight to these criminals, be they bandits, kidnappers or gun-totting cattle herders.”
