According to him the sheer cruelty of the murders fuelled by religious fanaticism indicates a serious problem with societal impunity.

“The impression being created and sustained is that government authorities are not bothered by these violent assaults and murders, and care less about the lives and property of Nigerians. This effortlessly conveys the impression of tacit approval for extremist behaviour which has invariably emboldened unbridled savagery,” he said.

Owoaje said the government should demonstrate firmness to indicate that no one is allowed to take a life without being made to be accountable.

The statement read in part: “We are of the firm view that the political and religious leadership in Nigeria need to depart from this path of ambivalence and its temporary advantage of political popularity, and recognize the damage recurrent violence does to communities, and national cohesion.

Our government must resolutely demonstrate, firmly and consistently, that every Nigerian has a right to life. No one should take the life of another human without being held accountable and subject to the weight of our laws. This includes those that commit violence and murder, and their enablers.
