Alarmed at the incessant killings by the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents in many villages and towns in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states during this month of Ramadam, Arewa Consultative Forum(AFC) has called on the Military to redouble its efforts in the fight against insurgency.

The forum had in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim condemned the frequent attracts and killings of innocent villagers especially during this month of Ramadam, saying it was cruel, barbaric and un-Islamic.

“ACF and, indeed, Nigerians are worried and disturbed with the recent and frequent attacks on villages and even states capital of Borno and Yobe by the Boko Haram insurgents leading to the death of hundreds of innocent people.”

“The renewed direct attack on the people in the Monguno, Kukawa, Maiduguri and many villages in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states is cruel, barbaric and condemnable especially in the holy month of Ramadan. This clearly shows that the Boko Haram insurgents are cultist in form, character and operation as their claim to being Muslims is untenable.”

Islam enjoined Muslims not to fight during the month of Ramadan no matter the provocation, talk less of attacking and killing innocent people for no just cause,” it stated.
