Bishop Kukah worries over insecurity Worries by the increasing violence across Nigeria, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Kukah, has indicted parents for being part of the blames for insecurity.

He was worried that the killings and violence have defied efforts of government and security officials to find solutions and wants parents to better perform their roles of seeing to the welfare of their children, especially giving education to the girl-child.

“Too many parents are outsourcing parenting. We have transferred our responsibility to machines. Our society is not going to grow if we don’t give our women a voice,” he said.

He also advised youths to work together in tackling the security challenges.

“Young children, please remember that in Plateau State, only last week, there were perhaps many young children like you getting ready and preparing for graduation but now they have graduated to the grave,” he said in Abuja on Saturday.

Beyond the attacks in which at least 100 people were killed in Plateau last weekend, Kukah also decried killings that have claimed many lives in Benue, Zamfara, Kaduna, Katsina and other states.

Kukah’s comments came a week after suspected herdsmen attacked  Gindin Akwati, Ruku, Nhgar, Kura Falls and Kakuruk in Gashish district, Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State.

During the attack, 100 people were confirmed killed, six people were injured while at least 50 houses, two vehicles and 15 motorcycles were burnt.

The attack has been widely condemned by the President, state governors, lawmakers and various groups, including Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) which urged the government to review the nation’s security architecture.

President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the Nigerian Governors Forum and former President Olusegun Obasanjo are among those who have paid condolence visits to the state.
