“Nowhere In The World Are Human Lives So Cheap" - Shehu Sani Reacts As Bandits Burn 42 Persons To Death In Sokoto

Former Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani has reacted to the tragic incident in which bandit terrorists burnt scores of travellers to death in Sokoto State.

Taking to his social media page to condemn the act, the former lawmaker lamented that human lives have become so valueless in Nigeria with the frequent killing of people by criminals.

The former Senator was reacting to the reported news of bandits killing and roasting about 42 passengers to death in Sokoto State.

As earlier reported by Naija News, the spokesman of the state Police Command, ASP Sanusi Abubakar, confirmed the incident in a statement issued on Tuesday night.

Abubakar said the travellers were set ablaze around 10am in Gidan Bawa village in Sabon Birni Local Government Area of the state.

The police spokesman stated that the victims were on their way to Gadan Gayan in Kaduna state when they were ambushed and attacked by the bandits.

Taking to his social media page to react, Sani said the incident is a pointer to the failure of government and if it had happened under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, there would have been a massive outcry.

He wrote: “Forty-two people were gruesomely killed and roasted in Sokoto. This is an atrocity that could have triggered an outrage and utter condemnation of the failure of the government if it had happened under the previous administration.

“Those who are silent are same as those who are indifferent; those who are indifferent are same as those who perpetrated that crime.

“Nowhere in the World are human lives so cheap, dispensable and disposable”.

He also added that it is wrong for the government to be investing heavily in infrastructures such as roads and rails without working on the safety and security of the people who will use them.

According to him, “When a Government builds Roads, Bridges and Rail lines without securing the lives of the people who will use it, it’s simply beautifying a cemetery.”
