Enough Of These Senseless Killings – Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku Abubakar.

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has condemns the latest sectarian crisis, which claimed the life of the Adamawa State PDP spokesperson, Mr. Sam Zadock  and 12 others.

Atiku says he is deeply embarrassed and utterly shocked by the continuing cycle of violence, revenge and counter revenge by ethnic warriors and militias in the country that has led to needless waste of precious human lives in the country.

The former vice president notes that the reckless disregard for the sanctity of life is not only disturbing, but it also shows the failure of local leaders to manage differences and grievances, adding that "bloodshed cannot be the solution to those grievances."

He explains that our common humanity is greater than our ethnic and religious differences and that the frequent resort to violence is inconsistent with the teachings of our religions about the sanctity of life, stressing that no society can achieve peace and happiness when love is replaced with violent and destructive hate and bigotry and has sent out calls for cool headed approach to conflict resolutions instead of incitements to violence by ethnic and religious leaders, adding that those who encourage the destruction of life are unfit to lead others. 

He also calls for increased vigilance and prompt response to early signs of developing violence or conflicts in order to nip such crises in the bud, explaining that the deployment of troops after lives have been lost "is tantamount to locking the stable door after the horse has bolted."

While praising the efforts of our security personnel and their sacrifices, he calls for improved strategies and the use human intelligence to foil mass murderers before they strike.
