The Senate President during the 8th National Assembly, Dr. Bukola Saraki has condemned the recent attack by gunmen on a mosque in Zamfara state which led to the killing of some worshippers.
Saraki in his reaction on Monday, condemned the activities of the criminals in its totality, calling on the government and security agents to step up their game in securing the lives of the citizens.
He added that the frequent cases and reports of insecurity in the country should be a source of concern for all Nigerians.
It will be recalled Naija News previously reported that gunmen on Friday stormed a Friday mosque in the village of Dutsin Gari in Kanoma, Zamfara State, and abducted about 40 worshipers and an Imam.
Five worshippers were killed while several others were also injured.
In his reaction to the incident, Saraki wrote: “This attack on worshippers during Juma’at prayers, which led to the kidnapping of 40 people, including an Imam in Zamfara State, should be a major cause for concern for all Nigerians.”
“These rampant cases of insecurity highlight a growing trend that must be addressed head-on. As I stated in my tweets on insecurity last week, we must see this as a problem that affects all Nigerians.”
“We must deploy all available resources; tap into the knowledge and experiences of our best minds both within and out of government; and call on our friends and allies across the world to help solve our insecurity challenges.”
“We need a deliberate and all-encompassing approach to ensure that such incidents are curbed or at the very least, brought to the barest minimum — because this cannot become our ‘new normal.’ It is unacceptable, and we must solve it together.”
