...MURIC wants speedy jus­tice

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The Mus­lim Rights Con­cern (MURIC) has urged se­cu­rity agen­cies to speed­ily un­veil and pros­e­cute the gun­men that in­vaded and killed wor­shipers at St Philip’s Catholic Church, Amakwa Ozubulu in Ek­wusigo Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Anam­bra State.

Pres­i­dent of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, Pro­fes­sor Ishaq Ak­in­tola, in a state­ment yes­ter­day urged peo­ple in the neigh­bour­ing com­mu­ni­ties to sup­ply use­ful in­for­ma­tion on the tragic in­ci­dent to the se­cu­rity agen­cies.

“We also ad­vise Nige­ri­ans to be se­cu­rity con­scious at all times be­cause in­se­cu­rity is a con­stant threat to eco­nomic growth and pros­per­ity.

“The MURIC de­nounces this wan­ton mas­sacre of in­no­cent peo­ple. It is heart­less, un­godly and bar­baric. In par­tic­u­lar, we con­demn the at­tack on the Catholic Church be­cause places of wor­ship do not be­long to the builders. They be­long to God. Any at­tack on a place of wor­ship is there­fore an af­front against God. No homo sapi­ens have the right to ex­tend hos­til­i­ties to the house of God,” MURIC said.
