Borno massacre: Tinubu writes Zulum, tells gov what’s needed to defeat Boko Haram
Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress Congress, APC, has written to the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum over Boko Haram killing in Zabarmari area of the state.
Tinubu said more effort is needed to win the war against Boko Haram in Nigeria.
Boko Haram had beheaded over 110 rice farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
Claiming responsibility for the attack, Boko Haram had said the farmers were killed for apprehending one of their Commanders and handing him over to the military.
Responding to the attack, the APC National Leader described Boko Haram as bloodthirsty insurgents.
The former Lagos State governor stated this in a statement signed by Media Office.
According to Tinubu: “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.’
Tinubu prayed that Allah would give the governor the courage to provide succour to people of the state.
