The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has condemned the killing of over 100 soldiers in Borno State by insurgents last week.



To this end, the group accused President Muhammadu Buhari of allegedly not showing much concern over the death of the military men, saying the Federal Government kept quiet and not knowing what to say about the incident for six days and also not sending condolence message to the family of the fallen soldiers.





The group stated this in a communique issued at the end of its monthly meeting, held at the residence of its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Tuesday. The communique was read by the Publicity Secretary of the association, Mr. Yinka Odumakin.



The Afenifere also called for the sacking of all the service chiefs for being ineffective in combating insecurity in the country.





The communique read, “The massacre of our ill-equipped troops by the evil sect raises serious concerns about the state of our armed forces’ combat readiness in spite of the unappropriated $1b the government claimed it disbursed months back to equip our military against insurgency.



“We were more pained at this tragic and monumental loss by the high insensitivity the Federal Government displayed on this matter.





“Firstly, it (the Federal Government ) kept quiet for six days after the incident and when it found its voice, there were no soothing words for the bereaved families.



“It had hardly made the bland statements before descending into the gutter of political quarrelling over the killings at a time a more sensitive leadership should have declared national mourning for the high casualties recorded which many countries never matched in wars that lasted for several years.
