Do You Agree? Traditional Rulers Know Kidnappers – Bishop Okonkwo


Bishop Mike Okonkwo, the presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), in his reaction to the spate of kidnappings witnessed in the country alleged that traditional rulers know kidnappers.

He also accused state Governors of doing little or nothing to address the security challenges the country has been enmeshed in.

 

Bishop Okonkwo made the claims at the 7th edition of the Leading Edge Conference and Business Summit organized by TREM (Vision House) in Utako area of Abuja, and he also warned against “ethnic, personal, religious and political profiling” which according to him will not help in any way to solve the issue.

 

The Cleric also called for a reduction in the salaries of lawmakers. Okonkwo said, “The people perpetrating kidnapping and other forms of violence did not drop from the sky; they came from somewhere. They are living in the same community where they do these things.“I have spoken with some traditional rulers that these things that are happening.

 

As far as I am concerned, if somebody comes to my town or a state where I am operating and begins to kill people indiscriminately, then I will suspend the traditional ruler.“How can that happen? I am in charge of a place and the traditional ruler of a town and such incidents like kidnapping happen in my town.

 

You mean I cannot do something to find out where they are coming from? Where are they and where are they hibernating?“They shoot people in the highway and run back into the bush in a state where somebody is a governor. We have had cases where some culprits were arrested.

 

Governors and traditional rulers should own these problems and not be crying. Every day, they are crying; I am tired of their crying, they should do something as leaders. Okonkwo added,

 

“The President is not in a place like Enugu; why should I be the governor of a state and be looking at the Presidency to come and handle my state for me when I have security votes?

 

“The menace of kidnapping is staring every Nigerian in the face. I have always said something concerning this country. When problems of Nigeria are handled from religious, tribal, political or personal sentiments, we miss the whole point.”
