AKURE-WORRIED by insecurity across the country occasioned by the Boko Haram sect, the Bishop of Akure Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Rt Rev. Michael Ipinmoye , weekend charged former President Olusegun Obasanjo to intervene in the security situation in the country.

Bishop Ipinmoye spoke in Akure during a church service to commemorate the first coronation anniversary of Deji of Akureland, Oba Adebiyi Adesida.

Obasanjo who was present on the occasion shook his head in disapproval of the killings by the Islamic sect.

The church service took place at St David’s Cathedral Church, Ijomu, Akure, Ondo State capital  and attracted  dignitaries including, Governor Olusegun Mimiko , Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade and more than twenty traditional rulers and many former and serving Senators and politicians.

The clergy man described as unacceptable the activities of the Islamic sects which had reached a feverish point.

Bishop Ipinmoye pointed out that Nigerians are fed up the killings of innocent people and that the Islamic sects should not be allowed to hold the Country to ransom for no just cause.

According to him “Obasanjo, you cannot just sit in Abeokuta and watch all these killing to continue. This country is not settle and you cannot just be looking as if you are not concerned.

“Liaise with your brothers in other parts of the country and stop this molestation. The people want to make this country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan, God will defeat them”.

He recollected how the former President dealt with similar situations in the past adding that he still has a role to play in the current situation.
