A communique signed by the president of the province and Archbishop of Ibadan Archdiocese, Most Rev. Gabriel Abegunrin, said the bishops calling on Buhari to stop paying lips service to the situation.

The communique was delivered after a meeting by the bishops at Jubilee Conference Centre, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.

“Things have become much worse. Nigeria is in security dire-straits. Only a few Nigerians in any part of the country can sleep with two eyes closed.

“Nigerians are being slaughtered daily by terrorists, criminals and so-called herdsmen on the roads, in their farms and even in their homes.

“With the security architecture in Nigeria seemingly on auto-pilot, the country is clearly drifting and needs decisive action to restore professionalism and effectiveness,” part of the communique read.

This comes after the president issued a statement in reaction to he death of Lawan Andimi, the CAN chairman in Adamawa State who was executed by Boko Haram.
