“I am very grieved and angered by the tragic burning to death by bandits of Rev.Father Isaac Achi,” Bishop Oke remarked. This is just one of many needless and heinous killings that have plagued Nigeria in recent years.

Many Christians have become victims of violence in the nation and this has earned her the reputation of being one of the most dangerous places to live for christians. These heinous acts of violence have no place in any society and they are an affront to the sanctity of human life and the teachings of Jesus Christ.”

Father Isaac Achi is unacceptable. Innocent lives are being lost due to the failure of our government to stem the spate of violence, kidnappings, and terrorism across the country. The government has failed in its duty to protect the people, and it is time for them to take action”he said.
