Nigerian Women Protest Against Church Killings In The Country

Nigerian women from Owo province have gone to the streets to protest against church killings. Over the weekend, unknown gunmen killed 22 people in a catholic church. Yemi Mahmoud, former Ondo state commissioner for women’s affair and social development said they are mourning.

“I am here in the midst of my people. We are mourning. What happened was war.”

She said the women, mostly from the town’s market, wanted the perpetrators of the church killings to pay for their sins. Due to this, they had placed a curse on the attackers by enacting a local rite. In Nigeria, most ethnic groups believe that the curses from women, especially mothers carry some significance. She says the proprietors need to be brought to the book.

This protest has even been taken to social media by celebrities, especially gospel artists. Nathaniel Bassey, a famous gospel musician started a campaign on his social media. This campaign involves posting the name of Jesus. He says people should focus on Jesus even in this trying moment for the church.

Unfortunately, people have expressed their disappointment in the media saying this massacre has got very minimal media coverage. It’s the gospel artists in Nigeria who have mostly paid attention to this probably because it concerns the church.
