Terrorists sadden Ex-Vice President

28 January 2014, 20:57Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed sadness over the latest terrorist killings in Adamawa and Borno States.  

It was reported that the terrorists suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect killed 18 worshippers this past Sunday at a Catholic church in Chakawa village, Madagali Local Government Area in Adamawa.

Another 52 others were killed in Kawuri Village of Konduga Local Government Area of Borno.

 “I am deeply saddened about the latest terrorist attack in my home state of Adamawa. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families, Abubakar said.

 Borno State Commissioner of Police Alhaji Lawal, Tanko confirmed the terror incidents.

“Yes there has been an attack on Kawuri by Boko Haram but the numbers of dead are not yet known to the command. However I know that no policeman was killed but several sustained injuries. I tried calling the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) but his line was not going through due to poor network,” said Tanko.

It was also reported that Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, who wanted to visit the affected village, was advised against the move as the military were still conducting an operation to flush out the alleged terrorists from the village.
