Borno Massacre: Buhari Must Guarantee Security And Safety Of Citizens – PFN
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has expressed sadness over the recent massacre of more than 43 rice farmers at the Zabarmari community in Jere Local Government Area, Borno State.
Felix Omobude, PFN National President, in a statement on Thursday, said the heinous crime was a stark reminder of the deplorable level of security in Nigeria. He, therefore, called on the Buhari-led government to guarantee the security and safety of all citizens.
He regretted that despite the economic situation, farmers in pursuit of their livelihood were hacked to death.
“President Muhammadu Buhari must step up to guarantee the security and safety of all the citizens of Nigeria, irrespective of their location, ethnicity, or faith.
“For a government that came into office on the back of a promise to prioritise security, the recent turn of events in the country, with banditry, kidnapping, and violence running riot is sad and unfortunate.
“We call on President Buhari to take on-board suggestions put forward by stakeholders in proffering solutions to the chronic challenge.”
Omobude commiserated with the families of the deceased, the government, and the people of Borno.
PFN prayed for comfort and continued strength for citizens in the North-East.
The statement appealed to all Christians to be more prayerful as the Christmas season approaches.
The farmers were killed by Boko Haram insurgents last Saturday and given a mass burial on Sunday.
