Boko Haram: N4GG Condemns Killing of 155 Persons in Borno, Adamawa

LAGOS FEBRUARY 17TH (URHOBOTODAY)-A non-governmental organization under the aegis of Network for Good Governance (N4GG) has condemned the recent killing of no fewer than 155 persons in Borno and Adamawa States by the outlawed Boko Haram sect, describing the killing as outrageous and senseless.
It would be recalled that the outlawed Boko Haram sect on Saturday night went on rampage in Borno and Adamawa States, slaughtering over 155 persons.
Reacting to the killing in a press statement after arising from a Regional meeting of the group in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, the South-West Regional Director of N4GG, Mrs. Igho Onuesoke wondered why must Boko Haram continue to kill their own people (Northerners) just for political reason, adding that no matter the killing Jonathan will contest in 2015 and rule for another four years.
“The killing by Boko Haram in the Northern part of the country is senseless. Why must they continue to kill their fellow Northerners just because they want to distabilise President Goodluck Jonathan’s government? No matter the killings, Jonathan will contest in 2015 and rule for another four years,” She vowed.
According to her, Niger Delta militants did not kill innocent people while seeking for good governance and economic well being, adding that of what benefit it would be if they continue to slaughter their own people in an attempt to seek for recognition or prevent Jonathan to run for second term.
She, however, appealed to security agents to fashion out military tactics on which to prevent further killings by the sect, adding that those behind the recent killings should be fished out and brought to justice.
