Atiku condemns resurgence of terrorism in North-East, urges FG to take action

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned the recent terrorist attacks in the North-East, which have resulted in the loss of innocent lives.

Atiku in a post on his X handle on Sunday, expressed sadness over the resurgence of terrorism in the region, citing the recent suicide bombings at a wedding reception, funeral procession, and hospital.

Atiku attributed the resurgence of terrorism to the government’s lacklustre approach to security, urging the federal authorities to take decisive action to prevent the region from sliding back into chaos.

He extended his condolences to the families of the victims and prayed for the souls of the departed.

Read Atiku’s full below:

“It is a sad development that the ugly incidents of terrorism are resurfacing and, indeed, metastasising in the North-East.

“The reported attack by suicide bombers at a wedding reception, funeral procession, and a hospital on Saturday stands condemned.

“It is unfortunate that much of the pushback that had been achieved against the Boko Haram terror sect are being cancelled, owing mainly to the government’s lacklustre posture to hold firmly on the frontline.

“It is thus important to call on the federal authorities to wake up to their responsibility and to make sure that the North-East does not slide back into a theatre of terrorism and extreme violence.

“My condolences go to the families of victims of these attacks, and it is my prayer that God grants a peaceful repose to the souls of the departed.
