According to Reno Omokri the increasing number of churches is the cause of the high crime rate in Nigeria. Below is what he tweeted:
“as a youth growing up in Nigeria, churches were not so rampant. Crime was low and people were content. As I grew up, churches became rampant .As they increased, crime rose and discontentment grew. Perhaps Nigeria needs more contentment, and less religiosity? As a nation, we need to understand that it is righteousness that exalts a nation and not religion”.
