Rann: Makarfi condemns attack, tells Nigerian Government what to do


A former governor of Kaduna State and ex-chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, NCC, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has lamented the terrorist attack in Rann by suspected Boko Haram extremists.

The former lawmaker said the government must change approach in the fight against insurgency following the attack that led to the loss of many lives, including officials of the Red Cross and the International Organization for Migration.http://dailypost.ng/2018/03/02/boko-haram-kills-four-un-aid-workers-abduct-one-borno/

He described the incident as “utterly condemnable,” while calling on government to intensify the fight against all forms of terrorism.

Makarfi said these in a statement signed by his spokesman, Mukhtar Sirajo, where he also offered his condolences to the families of victims of another bomb explosion in Bumi Yadi and Madagali on Saturday stressing that until terrorists are chased out of the nation, the fight against insurgency cannot be said to have been won in the true sense of the word.

The statement said, “Senator Makarfi considers the attack utterly cowardly and condemnable as innocent people were made soft targets, including those engaged in rendering humanitarian services.

“A better approach is needed in the fight against the Boko Haram, which should include a tightening of the security architecture in all the affected areas.”
