Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, said he could not understand why the government appeared powerless to prevent deadly attacks on Christians by Islamic terrorists. Speaking on April 30, a day after 21 people were killed in coordinated attacks on Sunday services at a university and a Protestant chapel, the archbishop said the incidents showed that the government “is not able to cope with the security situation, and we feel quite apprehensive.” He added, “Why the government cannot identify the people involved baffles the imagination.... Those young people killed at the university represented the hope of our country. It defies all logic,” the archbishop said. “They were people trying to build a better country.”
