The All Progressives Congress, APC, has described terrorists in the North eastern part of the country as cowards scoring cheap goals by killing unarmed civilians, especially children and women.
The interim national publicity secretary of the party, Lai Mohammed, reminded the terrorists that they could not win the ill-advised war they had levied against their fatherland.
“Nothing in the world can justify the senseless slaying of innocent civilians by the insurgents,” the party said.
The APC commended Governor Kashim Shettima for the efforts of his administration to help victims of the terrorist attacks in the state and his unflinching support to the military in its ongoing battle against Boko Haram.
The party also praised the security agents for the success recorded so far in the battle against terrorism but advised the security agents to increase their intelligence gathering capability with the aim to nip in the bud attacks on civilians and military units.
“The military has recorded some successes in its battle against the terrorists, it is time to rev up its strategy for preventing mass killings by the insurgents,” the party said.
