Shehu Sani Slams Federal Government's Inaction As Bandits Gruesomely Murder Sokoto Travellers

Senator Shehu Sani says the government's failure to address the series of massacres and insecurity in the country is unfortunate.

The former lawmaker, who represented the Kaduna Central in the 8th National Assembly, in a post on his verified Facebook page while reacting to the killing of about 42 persons in Sokoto State recently, said the incident would have triggered outrage if it were the previous government.

According to him, those who are keeping mum on the incessant killings are not different from the assailants.

The post reads, “Forty-two people were gruesomely killed and roasted in Sokoto. This is an atrocity that could have triggered outrage and utter condemnation of the failure of the Government if it had happened under the previous administration.

“Those who are silent are same as those who are indifferent; those who are indifferent are same as those who perpetrated that crime.

“Nowhere in the world are human lives so cheap, dispensable and disposable”.

The former lawmaker noted that in October, 43 people were slaughtered, 15 more killed in November and on Tuesday December 7, 42 more were roasted while running away from the rising incident of banditry in their area.

Bandits on Tuesday ambushed and burnt some travellers on a road linking Sabon Birni Local Government Area and the village of Gidan Bawa in the State. Among those who got burnt are children.
