Having been routed by the Nigerian security forces and our brave hunters and vigilante, the group has elected to increase their attacks across our region in mosques, churches, market places and in just any place where they have made prey of soft targets that are mostly women and helpless children.
As one of you,I feel the pains our people are going through now for the loss of loved ones who merely went out to buy or sell but were massacred in cold blood;who went to eek a living but never got back home again.
I condemn in a very strong voice this act of cowardice by those who have chosen to take human lives for granted.I condemn the action of these purveyors of wickedness and sorrow who have hidden behind a schewed and condemnable ideology of the foundation for man’a progress,education,to continue to perpetrate violence and untold hardship on our people.
I call on our security forces around our area and,indeed, our local hunters and vigilante to again rise up to this renewed act of violence by the insurgents and,once again, demonstrate to the entire world that our collective resolve to protect our land and people is more than a march for the brutal force and terror of any army of occupation or suicide attacks.
More than ever before, we, Christians, Muslims and Traditionalists,must all unite in our supplication to the Supreme Being to condemn this last act of the insurgents against our people.We must realise that the insurgents are the people’s common enemy whose actions must be condemned without recourse to any religious belief.Again, it bears stressing here that the action of the enemy is strange to Islam and to every known religion and must, therefore, be condemned by all.
I thank the Governments at all levels of our political ladder for the prompt action in caring for the wounded and the dead and,consequently, call on all our Constituents to offer support to them and their agents as the go through the rounds of restoring peace and normalcy in our land.
My heartfelt condolences go out to all those who have lost loved ones and property in these lates attacks .Surely,we all are united with you in this moment of grief.
May God bless our people,our State and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
