Archbishop Tunde Adeleye, the chairman of the Christian Council of Nigeria in the south-south has revealed that the church is afraid of speaking out against the ills affecting the country because of the insecurity challenge witnessed across the country.
Recalling how his predecessor was kidnapped and how junior pastors in the diocese he heads are attacked, the Archbishop for Anglican Church diocese for Niger Delta told journalists that there is an intimidation of the church and they are nursing the wounds inflicted on her.
“The too many kidnappings and killings of pastors in Nigeria have become very worrisome. There is frightening insecurity even to the stage that the church has become afraid to speak out anymore. There is intimidation of the church. A handful is still talking, but the church is nursing the wounds inflicted on her” the Archbishop said.
