NLC Worried By Resurgence of Boko Haram Attacks - Wabba

The Nigeria Labour Congress has commiserated with the government and people of Adamawa State over the killing of 50 worshipers in Mubi by a suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber and the slaying of 30 herders by yet to be identified assailants.

A statement signed by NLC President, Ayuba Wabba said the cold-blooded killings are shocking and reprehensible and that Congress demands that the perpetrators be found and brought to book.

"On the killings of worshipers in the mosques, we are worried by the resurgence of strikes at vulnerable targets by Boko Haram elements operating from fall back positions.

"While we appreciate the difficulties associated with policing an area as vast as the North East, we nonetheless call on our security and intelligence officers to do more.

"Part of this task may involve strengthening the process of security awareness among the local populace, intelligence gathering by the personnel and de-radicalisation campaign generally.

"We believe the Boko Haram insurgents have been defeated. What we are witnessing may not be another phase of the war hopefully, but a desperate attempt by a handful ragtags to create one by striking fear in the hearts of the people." the statement concluded.
