PUNCH — The National Catholic Diocesan Priests Association, Jalingo Diocese, in Taraba State on Wednesday blamed the Governor Darius Ishaku led administration for the escalation of killings in the State.
The Catholic body accused the state government of complacency in ending the crisis and addressing the plights of the people affected.
Addressing a press conference in Jalingo, Chairman of the forum, Rev Fr. Ephraim Sani, said the priests were saddened by the continued crisis in the state that has caused the death of many including a priest and the wanton destruction of property.
The Church noted that the administration of Darius Ishaku has not done enough to address the killings in the state, noting that human life in Taraba has become so cheap that it takes no second thought before life is wasted.
