Northern Govs Forum condemns Christmas day attack

27 December 2012, 10:32

Minna - The Northern States Governors' Forum has condemned the spate of attacks rocking the nation just as it urged security agencies to restore normalcy in the region.

Gov. Babangida Aliyu, Chairman of the forum on Wednesday made the remark, while reacting to the latest attack on the Evangelical Church of West Africa (ECWA) in Piri, Potiskum Local Government of Yobe on Christmas day.

"The forum is deeply pained by the fact that the perpetrators chose a holy day (Christmas) to carry out such a dastardly act which left scores of worshippers dead and many others injured," he said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Danladi Ndayebo.

He urged the security agencies not to be discouraged by the activities of terrorists.

He said that the nation would forever remain grateful to the security agencies for the successes recorded so far in the war against terror.

Aliyu, who is Niger State Governor, reiterated the forum's commitment to continue to work closely with the Federal Government in finding a lasting solution to the security challenges confronting the nation.
