It is no longer news that the Idoma nation is presently going through one of it's darkest moments in history. From the national economic crunch cascading down to the people on the homeland to gross insecurity occasioned by unmitigated kidnappings with a lack of headlong proactive measures by the relevant governmental and security authorities to arrest the ugly situation calls for serious introspection. With the above, it is difficult to choose which particular heinours act to lament.
But the height of it all is the advent of kidnappings which took the life of one of our most intellectually endowned clergies, the Vicar General of the Catholic Diocese Of Otukpo, Rev. Dr. John Adeyi.
For us, as the entire world eulogizes and continue to speak good of the Reverend gentleman, the government of Benue State is duty bound to ensure at all cost that those behind this heinous crime are brought to book. We will not be satisfied with mere lip service and colourful burial.
Nothing else will be more injurious to the Idoma nation than burying the truth with the corpse.
We therefore call on the Governor of Benue State to as a matter of urgency give this a more proactive approach.
The soul of Reverend Father John Adeyi can never rest until justice is served.
We mourn the exit of a true Homelander, defender of truth and morality who was a consistent ambassador of peace and an undisputed mentor to our generation NEXT.
