Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has condemned the slaughtering of rice farmers in Jere Local Government Area in Borno State.
The former Governor of Kwara State called on government to assemble qualified Nigerians to restructure the country’s security system.
Saraki described the killing by Boko Haram terrorists as tragic and despicable.
He took to his Twitter account and wrote, “Saturday morning’s attack on farmers harvesting crops in Koshobe village and other rural communities in Jere LGA of Borno State is both as tragic, as it is utterly despicable.”
“At this trying time, my prayers are with the affected families and the Borno State Government.”
“Now more than ever, as patriots, we must isolate any partisanship or sentiments and bring together our best and most experienced minds to restructure our national security system to better serve and protect all Nigerians.”
