The National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) National Bola Tinubu has expressed deep sadness over the killings of more than 40 rice farmers by Boko Haram insurgents in Borno
He said that it is very unfortunate that terrorists sniffed lives out of innocent farmers struggling to make ends meet and provide food for Nigerians.
The frontline Politician described the barbaric act as callous and satanic.
Asiwaju Tinubu’s media office said: “It is with utmost sorrow and distress that I commiserate with you on the dastardly and inhuman killing of dozens of farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, on Saturday 28th November 2020.
“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.
“My hope and prayer is that Allah will give you the courage to continue to provide succour to your people even in the face of this rather depressing event
