The Northern States Governors Forum, NSGF, has condemned the spate of explosions rocking the nation and has urged security agencies working to restore normalcy in the region not to despair.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Aliyu, said this in reaction to the latest gun attack of the Evangelical Church of West Africa, ECWA in Piri, Potiskum Local Government of Yobe State on Christmas day.
The perpetrators of the attack are yet to be identified.
“The forum is deeply pained by the fact that the perpetrators chose a holy day (Christmas) to carry out such a dastardly act which left scores of worshippers dead and many others injured,” said a statement signed by Mr. Aliyu’s spokesperson, Danladi Ndayebo.
The statement urged the security agencies not to be discouraged by the activities of terrorists, emphasizing that the nation would forever remain grateful to the military and other security agencies for the successes recorded so far in the war against terror.
The forum reiterated its commitment to continue to work closely with the federal government in finding a lasting solution to the security challenges confronting the nation.
