Catholic Archbishop of Owerri, Most Rev. Anthony Obinna has decried what he called mordern inhumanities and killings without traces across the country.

The prelate noted that just like corruption, brutality and killings had been institutionalised in Nigeria.

Preaching during a Mass at Maria Assumpta Cathedral Owerri on Sunday, Obinna expressed deep concern over the daily spilling of blood in Nigeria.

The prelate said the merciless killings were not only taking place in the northern part of Nigeria, but across southern part of the country and Igboland in particular.

He made reference to the killings in the North and the killing of Anambra billionaire, Chief Ignatius Adunukwe, who was slaughtered in Lagos and his body dismembered by a gang led by an Igbo man.

Archbishop Ohinna likened the current situation in Igboland to the dark days.
