President of Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, Rev Augustine Akubeze, slammed the Nigerian Government for not doing enough to bring those behind these crimes to book.
He said, "May we once again remind all the arms of government in Nigeria and all whose responsibility it is to protect Nigerians that without security there can be no peace."
