Cases of insurgency, banditry and kidnapping in some States across Nigeria, has attracted comments from the APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, lamenting on the cruelty being meted on the people of Borno, Yobe, Benue, Niger, Imo and other parts of Nigeria.
He said, “Like all decent Nigerians, I am angered and troubled by the terror and cruelty being visited upon the people of Borno, Yobe, Benue, Niger, Imo and other parts of the nation”.
He added that “These attacks have caused many to disparage our military and security forces. This we must not do. Valiant men and women serve in our security forces, risking their lives to protect us. We stand with them. The government also must continue to encourage the security forces to do their utmost to subdue this threat. The lives of innocent Nigerians and the future progress of the nation may lie in the balance”.
“The enemy’s attacks seem to focus on our schools, religious institutions and security forces. They seek to extinguish the light of knowledge and hope by shrouding us in the darkness of fear and brutal ordeal. We must not tremble. They will be vanquished. In the end, tolerance, justice and compassion shall win the day”, he admonished.
