Former Governor of Lagos, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reacted to the Killing of over 40 farmers in Zabarmari, Jere local government area in Borno state by Boko Haram terrorists.
In a letter to the Governor of Borno State, Tinubu commiserated with him over the gruesome murders. The statement read in part;
“The said the cold-blooded murder of the innocent farmers, toiling to eke out a living for themselves and their families and provide food security for our nation was not only callous but satanic.”
“It is with utmost sorrow and distress that I commiserate with you on the dastardly and inhuman killing of dozens of farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, on Saturday 28th November 2020.”
“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.”
“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. 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.”
“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.”, the statement read.
