United Nation call for establishment of Safeguard For Religious Sites in Nigeria.

Nigeria Representative of UN Alliance of Civilisations (Mr Miguel Moratinos) has called on all governments to support the implementation of the Plan of Action to Safeguard Religious Sites to keep worshippers safe.

Also, Moratinos made this appeal in the light of the attack on St Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Owo (Ondo State, Nigeria) during the Pentecost mass on Sunday.

However, in a statement released on Tuesday, Moratinos called for mutual respect of all religions and faiths and for fostering a culture of fraternity and peace.

Moratinos equally recalled UN Plan of Action to Safeguard Religious Sites, developed by UNAOC, and appealed to all governments and relevant stakeholders to support its implementation.
