The killing of over 40 rice farmers in Borno State has been frowned at by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).

In a statement by its Chairman and Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Kayode Fayemi, the forum described the attack as morally reprehensible

Recall that over 40 rice farmers were reportedly beheaded on Saturday, November 28 by Boko Haram terrorists

In the statement, Fayemi noted that the incident brought back ugly memories of several dastardly attacks on soft targets in the state.

He said that the method was consistent with the senseless bombings of busy markets, bus stations, schools and abattoirs whenever the terrorists felt overpowered by the security operatives.

“This sad narrative raises serious questions on the general security situation in the country and around the capability of the nation’s security architecture.

“It also raises questions on whether or not there are adequate arrangements to protect lives and property,” the statement read.

Fayemi said that the governors were worried that this was degenerating beyond explicable limits.

He warned that the catalogue of destruction had an adverse effect on everything in the State and the country at large.
