The Governors, through a press statement by their Chairman, said the ugly incident raises serious questions on the general security situation in the country, stressing that the sad incident brings back ugly memories of several dastardly attacks on soft targets in the state.
“The Governor’s according to the statement said that the killing of over forty (40) rice farmers in Garin Kwashebe in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State on Saturday, November 28, 2020, by suspected Boko Haram terrorists brings back ugly memories of several dastardly attacks on soft targets in the state.
The Governors, in their view over the attack, like many before it, as obnoxious, wicked, unwarranted, and morally reprehensible.
Saying the farmers were attacked while harvesting their produce totally oblivious of the danger that awaits them in nearby bushes. This method is consistent with the senseless bombings of busy markets, bus stations, schools, and abattoirs whenever the terrorists feel overpowered by the security operatives or feel their backs against the wall.
NGF showed their concern that the carnage is degenerating beyond explicable limits, yet again, and the catalog of destruction is not only seeming to be endless and intractable but it has an adverse effect on everything in the state and the country at large.
“This sad narrative raises serious questions on the general security situation in the country and around the capability of the nation’s security architecture. It also raises questions on whether or not there are adequate arrangements to protect lives and property.
“Since insurgency engulfed the country more than a decade ago, each time it seems like the situation is coming under control, the enemy strikes again. This has happened consistently.
