Ribadu concerned at terror incidents

20 February 2014, 07:30Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Presidential candidate of the now defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the 2011 elections, Nuhu Ribadu, has expressed concern at the recent abduction of school girls and other spate of killings by terrorists in the north eastern part of the country.

“The security situation in the north-east, especially the recent abduction of innocent school girls and other spate of killings by the insurgents, have reached a stage where all thinking citizens, irrespective of religious or ethnic affiliation, must understand the necessity of peace and ally in promoting any cause that will foster greater unity in this divided and insecure house,” he said.

He said he had been devastated with the sparks of inhumanity and condoled with the affected families.

“Like everyone, I have been devastated by these continuous sparks of inhumanity, but the most important thing is: let's understand that this is an attack on humanity, and not allow ourselves to be hoodwinked into hating innocent groups who are also struggling to highlight that we're all affected by these tragedies.

"Let us stand together to declare that we are all victims in this, as we demand to know the fate of our abducted daughters and measures taken to protect Nigeria. I offer my condolences to all families affected by these national tragedies.”

He urged citizens irrespective of their religious or ethnic affiliation to embrace peace.
