Religious Extremism Main Cause of Insurgency in Nigeria- – Army Chaplain

This is the time to right all the wrongs

Return-of-Boko-HaramA Catholic chaplain of 23 Armoured Brigade in Yola, Adamawa state, Rev Father ,Captain Mike Nwafor has lamented that wrong doctrines inculcated in some Nigerians by religious extremists were the main reasons for insurgency in the country.

Nwafor  stated this in Yola during a two days sensitization workshop organised  by the new Chief of Army staff, Lt Gen. T Y Buratai in the three states  of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa ravaged  by the Boko Haram insurgency to sensitize stakeholders on their roles in bringing the insurgency to an end.

According to the Rev Father, these wrong doctrines have contributed to the escalation of crime and security challenges in the country, especially the Boko Haram insurgency.

Father Nwafor who was one of the resource persons at the sensitization workshop revealed that most preachers no longer preached the principle of “Love your Neighbour  as yourself” which he claimed is one of the greatest principles of both the Bible and the Quran.
