The Christian’s in their millions have agreed to appear on all black to render their grievances over the insecurity in the Country
Speaking about the planned “Black Dress Protest,” Rev. Fr. Felix Gobi, the Senior Parish Priest of St. Peter’s Nunkai in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital during today’s mass sermon revealed it will be observed across all the parishes in Nigeria.
“We will continue to talk to our leaders that this way, we want to let them know that the killings of Christians by Boko Haram and killings of Nigerians by arm bandit and kidnappers is a condemned situation and must stop.
“Until we see the will to stop these ceaseless killings and an improved security situation in Nigeria where human lives must be respected, what we are experiencing in Nigeria now is not of God, is Satanic.”
