You are cowards, APC tells Boko Haram



The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the spate of mass killings by Boko Haram in the country’s North-east, calling the insurgents cowards for targeting unarmed civilians, especially women and children, in their dastardly attacks.

APC also described as “counter-productive, unwarranted and ill-advised” what it called “the not-so-subtle attacks launched against Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, by the presidency, for simply stating the obvious, that our soldiers need to be adequately equipped and properly motivated, if they are to be able to subdue Boko Haram.”

A statement issued in Abuja by the party’s Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said “nothing in the world can justify the senseless slaying of innocent civilians by a band of marauding insurgents,” and reminded the terrorists that they “cannot win the ill-advised war they have levied against their fatherland.”

While condoling with the government and people of the affected states, APC said the Nigerian military had undoubtedly recorded some successes in its battle against the insurgents, “it is time for it to rev up its strategy for preventing the kind of mass killings which the insurgents have been perpetrating in recent times, especially in the remote areas.”
