All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has sent condolence message to the governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum over the Saturday onslaught on rice farmers by Boko Haram terrorists on Borno State.
The APC chieftain added that the incident showed that the war against insurgents requires more efforts to win.
Tinubu stated this on Wednesday in the condolence letter which was titled, ‘Commiserating with Gov. Zulum, Borno People over Zabarmari Tragedy’.
At least, 43 farmers were beheaded by the terrorist’s group in Zabarmari area of Borno State last Saturday. The horrific killings have attracted both national and international condemnation. Many have also call on President Buhari to seek external support and restructure the security apparatus in order to overcome the insurgency.
The former Lagos State governor said, “The cold-blooded murder of these innocent citizens, toiling to eke out a living for themselves and their families and provide food security for our nation is not only callous but satanic,” Tinubu stated.
“Your Excellency, this unfortunate incident despite your spirited efforts in complementing the efforts of the Federal security forces is a sad reminder that the war against these desperate and blood-thirsty insurgents will require more efforts to win.”
Also, Tinubu acknowledged Zulum’s efforts in resettling persons displaced by the marauders.
He said, “I recall your strident sacrifices to ensure that millions of displaced Borno residents are resettled in their ancestral homes and return to their various occupations. These efforts have not only helped in increasing agricultural output but have also given joy to the displaced.
“My hope and prayer is that Allah will give you the courage to continue to provide succour to your people even in the face of this rather depressing event.
“My condolences go to the families of the deceased and the entire Borno citizenry. My prayer is that Allah will give comfort them and bring quick recovery to the injured. May he also grant the deceased eternal rest.”
