Alexander Ibezim, a right reverend and Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, has urged the federal government to urgently ensure the protection of life and property of citizens of the country.
Ibezim, who said this in his Easter message, explained that life was so sacrosanct to be wasted violently.
The bishop described the killing of human beings as unethical; stressing that government at all levels must rise to the challenge of bringing sanity to the nation through stopping of the senseless and inhuman acts taking place across the country.
He noted that human beings were created in the image of God for a special purpose, noting that the death of the Lord Jesus Christ was a great sacrifice that gave humanity victory over forces of darkness through His resurrection.
Ibezim urged all classes of leaders in the society to tap into the wisdom of God to help them in resolving issues militating against the growth of the nation.
The bishop, then, enjoined the faithful to identify with victory of Jesus over death by being obedient to the words of God to secure a place in His kingdom.
