In the wake of national grief, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed sadness and worry over the gruesome massacre of 43 farmers in Borno state.
Legit.ng recalls the farmers were beheaded by the Boko Haram insurgents in Zabarmari village of the northern state in what has sparked reactions and renewed fresh demand for the sack of the service chiefs.
Reacting to the tragedy, the opposition party condemned the latest attack in the strongest terms and described it as extremely wicked and devilish.
PDP also said the attack has proven the present administration's failure to tackle the security threat and challenges posed against the country by Boko Haram, kidnappers and bandits, adding that "the ship of state continues to drift" under Muhammadu Buhari.
The party told the president to "immediately move to Zabarmari in Borno state, empathize with the families of the victims and lead from the front in restoring security in the area."
"The PDP notes with pain that this horrific killing of compatriots comes as yet another of the recurring horrid testament and badge of failure of the President Buhari-led APC administration to secure our nation and guarantee the safety of lives and property in our country.
"Indeed, our party is distressed by the escalated killing and maiming of innocent Nigerians by insurgents, bandits and marauders, who have continued to ravage and pillage our communities."
Meanwhile, the United Nations has affirmed that over 110 farmers were killed by men suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents at a rice field in Jere local government of Borno state,
