Mubi: Senator Makarfi Condemns Boko Haram Attacks
Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi is distraught at the news of the dastardly twin suicide bombings, which occurred in Mubi, Adamawa State, yesterday, taking the lives of many innocent people pursuing their legitimate endeavours.
Senator Makarfi condemns this heinous, barbaric and cowardly act, the first of which was perpetrated in a mosque against worshippers communing with God, ostensibly in the name of a religion whose respect for the sacredness of human life is so absolute that it equates the murder of a single person with the killing of the entire mankind.
The Senator believes that these perpetrators, rather than God, are worshipping and serving the demon and there’s therefore the need for the forging of a united front to confront the menace that they pose. This should include among others, digging beneath the surface into the socioeconomic and even political circumstances that encourage the breeding of the monster.
Most importantly however Senator Makarfi believes that the government and the security agencies need to up the ante in the fight against insurgency, especially in the area of intelligence gathering and deindoctrination so that future attempts can be nipped in the bud and the humongous anti insurgency expendirure can be justifiably explained.
Senator Makarfi consoles with the families of the deceased, Mubi Emirate, government and people of Adamawa State and indeed the entire country over this unfortunate callousness. He also prays for a speedy recovery to the injured.
