Jos, Nigeria, Jul 9, 2012 / 19:25 pm
Archbishop Ignatius A. Kaigama is concerned over the seemingly endless violence against Christians that claimed at least 58 lives this past weekend and hundreds of others in recent weeks.
It is "our prayer that something definitive will be done to stop the situation that is inhuman," the Archbishop of Jos, Nigeria and Nigerian Bishops' Conference president said.
In a July 9 interview with Vatican Radio, Archbishop Kaigama said that the violence against Christian villages around Jos "doesn't seem to stop."
Although he was recently awarded the Institute for International Research's annual peace building award, the archbishop said he and his priests are discouraged by the silence of foreign governments surrounding the violence in Nigeria.
