Senator Shekarau Condemns Zabarmari Massacre, Pray for Borno
I commiserate with you, My Brother Governor and the entire people of Borno state over the brutal and senseless massacre of farmers in Zabarmari on Sunday.
On behalf of my entire Senatorial Constituency, and indeed all right-thinking people, I condemn this ungodly and barbaric waste of precious human lives, targeting a vulnerable segment of our population.
There are not enough words to convey the weight of my heart-felt grief over this dastardly and cowardly act meant to sow fear and confusion in the minds of the people of Borno State.
Please remain courageous in the face of this tragic situation that has happened despite all your commendable efforts to restore normal life and protect ungoverned spaces in the State.
Your efforts have not been in vain. Despite setbacks like this mindless slaughter of Zabarmari Villagers, you have registered your footprint as a courageous and visionary peacetime administrator destined to transform Borno State from the hopelessness of insurgency to a new dawn of peace, development, and prosperity.
To the departed, I pray the Almighty to forgive their shortcomings and grant them Aljannah Firdausi.
To those who lost their loved ones, I pray to ALMIGHTY ALLAH to grant them the fortitude to restart their lives and replace their hopelessness with hope
To farmers, rural dwellers, and the Brave People of Borno State who have lost counterparts and companions in this tragic incident, I urge forbearance and fortitude.
To each one of us who has lost a piece of their Humanity in this horrific and despicable act, I pray for Quick Recovery and Resilience to carry on with daily life. I also urge ALL to remain security conscious at all times and to partner with the various Governments and Security Agencies to better protect us and our neighbourhoods.
Your Excellency, please, accept the assurances of my highest esteem, always
SENATOR IBRAHIM SHEKARAU
