Musa Na Allah Sokoto
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has expressed deep shock and displeasure of the government and good people of Sokoto State with sad and upsetting report of Boko Haram attack on scores of rice farmers in a village near Maiduguri.
“We are deeply concerned and worried that an unspecified number of our enterprising citizens, who had travelled hundreds of kilometres to seek their means of livelihood in the areas where the attacks took place, were also affected.” Tambuwal averred.
He said the dastardly act, at once is in human, abominable, disgusting and, very disturbing.
“As we condoled the government and good people of Borno, with who we have consistently shared our sympathy and solidarity in weathering this horrendous trend of insecurity, we also commiserate with the families of the victims from our state.” He said.
“God willing, we will collaborate with the government of Borno to ascertain the number of our citizens affected with a view to identifying them. In the same vain, we will support the families of the victims.” Tambuwal explained.
The Governor prayed Allah to grant all of the victims’ eternal rest and their families the fortitude to bear this heart wrenching loss.
I also pray for God’s intercession in bringing this spate of insecurity in the country at large to an end.
