Opposition party asks FG to find lasting solution to Boko Haram crisis.
The party said the barbaric attack is another reason for all stakeholders to work tirelessly to end the daily carnage in some parts of the North.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said while every human life is sacrosanct, it is particularly saddened by the mindless killing of security personnel in the course of carrying out their duties of ensuring the protection of life and property.
It also described as barbaric and callous the killing of defenceless citizens, especially women and children, saying the perpetrators of the senseless killings have lost their sense of decency and humanity.
”Nothing in the world can justify the kind of killings we have witnessed in recent times, and it is high time those who are behind these orgy of violence stopped and retraced their steps,” ACN said, adding that the Bama killings, coming about three weeks after the Baga massacre, portray Nigeria as a country where human life has little or no value.
”This unflattering portrayal can only have negative consequences for our country, which needs all the goodwill of its global partners, all the foreign investments it can muster, as well as an environment conducive for urgent growth and development,” the party said.
ACN wondered what the insurgents wanted to achieve by attacking women and children in police barracks and targeting health centres, courts and local council secretariat, all areas most likely to be populated by innocent civilians.
The opposition party urged the Federal Government to work closely with other key stakeholders to find a lasting solution to the Boko Haram crisis, saying the time for flip-flopping and foot-dragging is over.
