The Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, the Right Reverend Alexander Ibezim has charged the Federal Government to put urgent measures in
place to ensure the protection of lives and property of citizens in the country.
Right Reverend Ibezim, who gave the charge in his Easter message, explained that life was so precious to be wasted violently.
The Bishop, who described killing of human beings as abominable, stressed that goverment at all levels must rise to the challenge of bringing sanity to the nation through the stoppage of the senseless and inhuman act.
He noted that human beings were created in the image of God for a special purpose, pointing out that the death of Jesus Christ was a great sacrifice, which gave humanity victory over the forces of darkness through His resurrection.
The Right Reverend Ibezim urged all classes of leaders in the society to tap from the wisdom of God to help them in resolving issues negating the growth of the nation.
The Anglican Bishop advised the faithful to identify with the victory of Jesus over death by being obedient to the words of God to secure a place in His kingdom.
