APC Condemns Yobe Attack, Call On Boko Haram To Drop Arms, Sounding patriotic


Lai Muhammed

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has strongly condemned the recent attack on the College of Agriculture in Yobe state, and called on the members of the Islamist sect, Boko Haram, to lay

down their arms in the interest of national peace.
Suspected Boko Haram members attacked students of the college in the Gujba district of Yobe state in their hostel while they were asleep killing at least forty.
Spokesperson of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed issued a press statement and describing the attack as “dastardly, senseless and indefensible.”
Alhaji Mohammed called on traditional rulers, religious, political and opinion leaders in the affected areas to join hands in curbing the violent activities of the sect.

The APC ended by reiterating its stance dialogue as an effective tool in the fight against insurgency in the country and called on members of the Islamist sect to embrace dialogue as offered to it by the federal government.

”Boko Haram should remember that they are not fighting an external war, and that their grievances, whatever they are, can never be resolved by continued killing, maiming and plundering. They must therefore put an immediate end to their cycle of violence and opt for dialogue. The longer this violence continues, the more difficult it becomes to resolve. Enough is enough!” The party said.

”It is clear that this Boko Haram menace cannot be resolved by the government alone, hence all stakeholders must urgently intervene to complement government’s efforts to end the
insurgency and get those behind it to embrace dialogue.” He said.
”There can be no justification for Boko Haram to continue to kill and maim innocent citizens, especially because the victims are not just fellow Nigerians like them, but most are actually their
kith and kin,” Alhaji Mohammed added.
