Kalu condemns Boko Haram attacks in Yobe, Borno, condoles Niger over boat mishap



Kalu 640A former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has condemned the recent attacks by suspected members of dreaded sect, Boko Haram, in Yobe and Borno State, in which about 90 persons were reported to have died.
Kalu, in a statement by his Special Adviser, Oyekunle Oyewumi, charged security agents to put a stop to “these mindless killings to restore the confidence of Nigerians in their country.”
The dreaded sect on Wednesday and Thursday struck in Borno State, killing no fewer than 27 persons.
In the first attack, six people were killed and four others sustained injuries in Fulatari, while 21 people lost their lives in the second attack, including the Village Head of Gamboru, Lawan Ali Shettima.
Both villages are in Gamboru-Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State.
On Saturday, the members of the sect attacked the College of Agriculture in Gujba, Yobe State, killing at least 60 students.
Kalu decried the continued killing of Nigerians by members of Boko Haram, adding: “It is sad that despite the efforts of the government, very little appears to have changed.”
Kalu equally urged the Government and people of Niger State to accept as the will of God the death of 42 persons in the state when their boat capsized on River Niger.
He prayed that such accident would not occur again and that God will give the bereaved families the fortitude to bear the loss of their loved ones.
