The Nigerian Institute of Estate Surveyors and Valuers has asked the Federal Government to look into the recent murders of worshipers at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State (NIESV).
It also told the security agencies to look into what happened, find the people who did it, and punish them.
This was said on Tuesday at a press conference in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State, as part of the 52nd annual national conference with the theme “Cities of the Future: Development, Infrastructure, and Sustainability.”
Wike was angry about how unsafe the country was getting, and he sent his condolences to people who had lost loved ones or property because of different kinds of violence.
He also said, “We are thankful to God for giving us this chance to get together and talk, but we can’t ignore the mood of our country right now. Violence is getting worse all over the country, and our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones and homes because of it.
“We feel especially bad for His Excellency, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, the Executive Governor of Ondo State and the people of Ondo State because innocent worshippers were brutally killed at a mass at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, on June 5, 2022.
“We strongly condemn the bloody and senseless attack and ask the government and security agencies to carefully look into it to find out who did it and bring them to justice as soon as possible.
“It’s impossible to say enough about what the lack of security means for business. When people feel unsafe in general, it hurts business investments, including real estate.
“We applaud the government’s efforts to deal with the security problem, but we want a critical and strategic re-examination of the security architecture so that it can be completely redesigned.”
Wike, on the other hand, said that while the government kept working to bring back peace and security, all Nigerians needed to do their part to ease the tension in the country that was caused by the security problems.
In his own words: “I ask all Nigerians to keep supporting our security agencies as they work to keep us safe. The least we can do is give them our full backing.”
