Irregular migration has been on the radar of many government and non-governmental organizations in recent times. This is coming from the backdrop of records of heinous and avoidable menace resulting from it. The sub-Saharan African has been the major hot spot of this menace. Many citizens of countries in the sub-Saharan countries have lost their lives as a result of irregular migration. The Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea has unjustly become the burial ground of so many uninformed migrants.

Many irregular uninformed migrants have been kidnapped, enslaved and shamelessly trafficked. As a result of irregular migration many have suffered grievous and heinous crimes in the hands of human traffickers. Many young girls have been through sexual violation, killings and yet through exploitation and made to pay huge ransoms. These are the messages Patriotic Citizens Initiative has taken to Catholic Churches in Benin City Edo State Nigeria.
Irregular Migration Campaign In Churches:
The target of Patriotic Citizens Initiative (PCI) is to spread the message of the dangers of irregular migration to all sundry. And religious bodies such as the Catholic Churches are a great platform to do so. PCI team is very grateful to the Catholic Churches in Benin City for their warm reception and acceptance. And interestingly, we are not alone in this campaign; we have earned the support of the conference of Catholic Bishops in Italy.
