Massacre of Innocent Students in Yobe, Senseless… – Gov Okorocha, Onuoha

Owerri — Angry reactions have continued to trail the mindless killing of innocent students of Federal Government College, FGC, Bunu Yadi, Yobe State, by the Boko Haram sect as Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and the Anglican Bishop of Okigwe South, Rt. Rev. David Onuoha, have described it as “senseless, mindless, dastardly, horrifying and ugly to extreme.”

Similarly, the leadership of a non-governmental organisation, Move On Nigeria, MON, called for urgent solution to the Boko Haram menace.

Governor Okorocha, who made his feelings known during an interactive session with Imo traditional rulers in Owerri, also wondered why anybody or group would rise, for whatever reason and brutally murder a fellow citizen.

“The mindless killing of several students of Federal Government College, Bunu Yadi, Yobe State, by Boko Haram, is condemnable,” Okorocha said.

In his own reaction, Bishop Onuoha said: “There cannot be any justification for this dastardly act. The morbid spectacle is reprehensible and horrifying.”

He recalled with grief that “the youngsters had finished their work for the day and were actually sleeping in their hostels when the messengers of death unleashed unimaginable terror on the hapless students.”

He reminded traditional rulers in all the states of the federation that they had roles to play in securing their domains, adding that no meaningful development could be recorded in an atmosphere of chaos and insecurity.
