Bishop urges Nigerians to pray for Chibok girls


IBADAN – Bishop Amos Ajiboye of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Diocese of Agodi, Ibadan, has called on Nigerians to intensify their prayers for the release of the abducted school girls in Chibok, Borno.
Ajiboye made the appeal on Thursday while addressing a news conference in Ibadan.
“We had a three-day fasting and prayer session in the church, praying to God for the release of the girls and for the return of normal life in this country, especially in the northern part.
“At the end of the session, we rose with a clarion call on all Christians to unite in prayer for the release of the Nigerian girls.
“At a time like this, religious leaders must be readily available to restore hope in this situation of hopelessness as this incident marks a direct attack against education of girls in Nigeria.
“It is outrageous that Boko Haram uses this inhuman tactic as a means to cause fear and insecurity among the people in their attempt to exercise their political will,” he said.
The cleric, who condemned some political leaders in the country for demonstrating sympathy for members of the sect, added that  the current security challenges were beyond religious agitation.   (NAN
