Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the killings by terrorists in the north eastern part of the country, calling them cowards for killing unarmed civilians, especially children and women.
This is contained in statement on Wednesday signed by the Interim National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lai Mohammed.
“Nothing in the world can justify the senseless slaying of innocent civilians by the insurgents,” the party said.
The party reminded the terrorists that they could not win the ill-advised war they had levied against their fatherland.
Mohammed, however, praised the security agents for the success recorded so far in the battle against terrorism.
“The military has recorded some successes in its battle against the terrorists, it is time to rev up its strategy for preventing mass killings by the insurgents,” he said.
However, the party advised the security agents to increase their intelligence gathering capability with the aim to nip in the bud attacks on civilians and military units.
APC urged the security agents to endeavour to win the heart of the locals in the volatile areas so that they could get their cooperation in ending terrorism.
Similarly, the party commended Gov. Kashim Shettima for his unflinching support to the military in its ongoing battle against Boko Haram.
The party extolled the efforts of his administration to help victims of the terrorist attacks in the state.
