A former military head of state, General Yakubu Gowon, has called on all leaders and elder statesmen in Nigeria to come together for an urgent meeting on ways to end the killings across the country, especially in Benue and Borno states.

General Gowon who condemned the killings lamented that his heart bleeds at the rate at which innocent lives are lost including those of the Catholic priests murdered in Benue on Tuesday.

The former head of state spoke about the killings on Saturday in Owerri, the Imo State capital, when he visited Governor Rochas Okorocha ahead of the Nigeria Prays Group’s prayer rally in Imo State.
