As Nigeria marks her 57th anniversary coming Sunday, the Archbishop of Lagos Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Dr Michael Olusina Fape has declared that the blood of innocent souls are crying for vengeance.

Fape said this in his sermon at the 57th special independence anniversary of Nigeria service, held at

In his message, Fape said, “We have been seeking the face of God but have not turned from our wickedness. We have shed blood of many innocents souls in this nation. From Dele Giwa to Bola Ige to Alfred Rewane to Funsho Williams to our Kudirat Abiola and many more. The blood of these innocent ones are crying for vengeance. Should we continue in sin and ask for forgiveness, absolutely no.”

He identified the country’s politicians, religious leaders and community leaders as responsible for Nigeria’s ‘sickness,’ saying the country was dire in need of selfless leaders. 

The Cleric who also doubles as the Bishop of Remo, said however that Nigeria’s Independence Day, October 1, called for celebration, as Nigeria survived civil war and military coups and has enjoyed so many years of democracy.
