The Order of the Knights of St. Mulumba (KSM), Lagos Metropolitan Coun-cil, has described abortion, homosexuality, kidnapp-ing, extra-judicial killings and other social vices as major forces that cut life short.

Metropolitan Grand Knig-ht, Sir William Adebisi, said this during a press con-ference at St. Gerald Cath-olic Church, Gbagada, Lag-os, after a pro-life rally and walk for life tagged: ‘Keep-ing Wholly the Tri-unity of our Humanity’.

During the walk around Gbagada, the knights, acc-ompanied by the Ladies of St. Mulumba, preached “Life is sacred, protect it.”

Speaking against the alar-ming rate of extra-judicial killings in the country, Sir Adebisi, said: “Extra-judic-ial killing is a grave abuse of rule of law and human dignity which were the core of fundamental hum-an rights.

“It should be strongly cond-emned and denied in any sane society, especially where democratic govern-ance is practiced, such as Nigeria,” he said.

Continuing, he said: “It is wrong to take laws into our hands, whether as an indi-vidual or a group. It is cri-minal to kill a suspect without allowing due pro-cess of law to takes its course. “The only way we can ma-ke progress rebuilding this nation into an ideal society is to start practicing what is ideal. I will recommend that full investigation and judicial inquiries must foll-ow without delay,” he noted.
