Killings, Destruction In Northern Nigeria Getting Out Of Hand, Elders Tell President Buhari




A group identified as the Northern Elders for Peace and Development has called out President Muhammadu Buhari over the deteriorating security situation in the north.

According to the group, the ugly development would go out of control if nothing urgent is done to arrest it.

The group lamented that killings of both security personnel and civilians since the beginning of 2021 were alarming, adding that the situation of developments in the region was being downplayed.

In a statement signed by the group’s National Coordinator, Engr. Zana Goni, the elders declared their support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s stance that no ransom should be paid to abductors or negotiation be engaged with bandits again.

Goni said: “We observed that the insecurity in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa states is getting worse by the day. As a matter of fact, it has degenerated in the last one month to a point of very serious concern.

“We are sure that this has been so because Mr. President is not getting the right briefings from those entrusted with the situation.”

Recall that Nigeria’s National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd) recently restated that the federal government won’t negotiate with bandits.

Monguno had made the comment on Thursday, March 11 during an interaction with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
