Zamfara Killings Unacceptable, Muslim Body Tells FG
The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), is asking questions regarding the return of bloodshed to Zamfara.
The group, on Tuesday expressed dissatisfaction with the efforts being made to stamp out banditry in the state, saying government must move beyond mere condemnation to action.
The Secretary General of JNI, Dr Khalid Aliyu said in a press statement issued on Tuesday in Kaduna that the body was also worried over the resurgence of Boko Haram attacks in Yobe and Borno.
It noted that parts of Zamfara have been allowed to turn into a theater of dehumanisation and desecration of the sanctity of life, properties, personal liberty and communal integrity.
“This is utterly reprehensible and unacceptable, for hooligans and wayward to hold a whole state to ransom.”
It added: “Equally painful is the return of insurgency in some parts of Borno and Yobe states, with wanton destruction of lives and properties.
“Why must all these bloodlettings be allowed to resurface. All these re-occurring acts of terrorism, dehumanisation, sacrilege of sanctity of life and all forms of wickedness are utterly and unreservedly condemned in their entirety and government must go beyond mere condemnations.”
The JNI called for realistic investigation on the killings in Zamfara, adding “it is hardly imaginable that such pusillanimous and evil acts could still occur in Zamfara state despite frequent assurances by government.”
“Nonetheless, JNI will continue to ask questions:
“Who are the blood thirsty fellows, why have they been allowed for years, why have they not been arrested and interrogated, what has been the motive behind such repeated scandalous acts?”
The Muslims’ umbrella body “therefore call on governments at all levels to do everything possible as a matter of urgency to stop these evil acts of terror repeatedly being unleashed on innocent souls and restore peace and security, which is their first constitutional role, as silence is no longer golden”.
