The Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, His Lordship Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, has called on Christians to rise and defend themselves in the face of what he described as full-scale war against Christians in Nigeria.

The bishop who was reacting to the recent attack on priests and students of Sacred Heart Minor Seminary, Jalingo, Taraba State by suspected Fulani herdsmen, accused the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of being insensitive to the plights of Christians in the country.

While condemning the attack, Ezeokafor said: “Some people, somewhere have declared full scale war against Nigerian Christians.

“We have to be vigilant. It is obvious we are no longer needed here. We have to find a way to safeguard our lives. We must defend ourselves.

“We’ll not allow these bloodsucking demons to continue to kill and maim us like chickens.”

He challenged the federal government to come out clean by putting a stop to the mindless killing and maiming of Nigerian Christians.

According to reports, the suspected Fulani herdsmen in the early hours of Monday, May 28, 2018 at about 12:30am attacked the priests and students of Sacred Heart Minor Seminary, Jalingo the capital Taraba State.

The report also revealed that the assailants shot sporadically at the Rector's residence, broke window glasses in the process and shattered the windscreen of one of the vehicles belonging to one of the priests, shot and injured one of the priests, Rev. Fr. Cornelius Kobah, on the leg, beat up Fr. Stephen Bakari.
