Slain Catholic Priests: Onaiyekan cautions against anarchy (ThisDay)
The Cardinal of the Abuja Catholic Diocese, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has called on Nigerians to rise above religious, political and ethnic divides to save the country from drifting into anarchy.

Onaiyekan handed down the advice on Tuesday during a sermon for the burial of two catholic priests: Rev Frs. Felix Tyolaha and Joseph Gor, at Ayati, a small agrarian hilly village on the outskirts of Ikpayongo in Gwer East local Government Council of Venue State.

He said the killings across the country must stop and called on well meaning Nigerians to unite in fighting the great evil that had befallen the country.

The cleric warned: “This must not be politicised. The nation is in a state of emergency. We demand for synergy; division, especially on tribal lines will only throw our nation to anarchy.” Read more
