Christians To Dress In Black Attires On Ash Wednesday, To Protest Killings In Nigeria

The Diocese of Roman Catholic Church in Nigeria have announced that its members will dress in all black attires for the Ash Wednesday on February 26, 2020.

Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of prayer and fasting observed by Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Nazarenes, Independent Catholics, as well many from the Reformed faith. 

The planned “Black Dress Protest” is to show solidarity and express their grievances over the increased rate of killings and insecurity in Nigeria.

The Diocese had earlier mobilized its members all over the world to pray for the current insecurity challenges of the country.

Speaking about the planned “Black Dress Protest,” Rev. Fr. Felix Gobi, the Senior Parish Priest of St. Peter’s Nunkai in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital during Sunday’s mass sermon stated that;

We will continue to talk to our leaders that this way, we want to let them know that the killings of Christians by Boko Haram and killings of Nigerians by arm bandit and kidnappers is a condemned situation and must stop.

Until we see the will to stop these ceaseless killings and an improved security situation in Nigeria where human lives must be respected, what we are experiencing in Nigeria now is not of God, is Satanic.
