Insecurity: CSOs to hold National Day of Mourning

A coalition of civil society organisations, would this Monday observe it as a National Day of Mourning for lives lost to violent killings in Nigeria

A statement by Abiodun Bayewu, "This call for a National Day of Mourning comes at a time when virtually all states of our country have been beset by violent killings with impunity.

“Currently at the epicenter of these crises is the ongoing violent killings in the Middle Belt of our country, which is rapidly spiraling into a national catastrophe and is threatening the very fiber of our nationhood.

"It behooves upon us as citizens therefore to unite in our grief and demand for our government to act responsibly to address these killings, and put a stop to the impunity that has caused the violence to thrive.”
