Incessant attacks on Shiroro communities insane, unacceptable, says Gov Bello

Published

on

The Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Sani Bello, has described the attacks by terrorists in some communities in the Shiroro Local Government Area of the state as insane and unacceptable.

This is as he stated that efforts would be intensified by government and security agencies to ensure that desperate terrorists, who are on the run, are captured and brought to justice.

While commiserating with the victims of the affected communities, especially in Nakudna and Wurukuchi, the Governor said that he shared in their pains and grief, promising that more decisive actions would be taken to guarantee the lives of the inhabitants of the communities.

However, the Governor said that the worrisome part of the security challenges is the inability of the farmers to harvest their farm produce which may likely trigger food scarcity in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mary Noel-Berje, Friday.

“We are worried by the nefarious activities of these terrorists, desperation has been noticed amongst them as a result of the onslaught of security agents which has made them target unsuspecting rural inhabitants.

“It is now time that full-fledged war should be declared on these unscrupulous elements since they have been proscribed as terrorists. We cannot just allow these people to continue with this massacre,” Bello said.

The Governor said that a coordinated and simultaneous attack on the terrorists by security agents in the affected states will go a long way towards achieving success.

He prayed for the repose of the souls of those killed, quick recovery to those injured.

Two communities in Shiroro LGA were reported to have been attacked recently when most of the villagers were on their farms to harvest their farm produce.

The attacks led to the killing of many, houses and food bans were also burnt.
