NewsReel 1/12/14 - South East Governors Mourn Kano Bomb Victims

[ Masterweb Reports ] - The South East Governors' Forum ( SEGF) has commiserated with the family members of the victims of last Friday's Kano Central Mosque bombing that claimed over 200 lives.

The forum also strongly condemned the "senseless attack on innocent worshippers."

Chairman of SEGF and Governor of Abia State, Chief Theodore Orji who conveyed the condolences of the forum in a release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Charles Ajunwa, also commiserated with the people and government of Kano State over the unfortunate incident.

The Forum described as "barbaric and incomprehensible" the activities of those behind the bombing "whose mission and agenda have no trace of sanity".

The South East governors also described as "the height of profanity and disdain for God", the killing of worshipers at the place of worship.

"Anyone that has the temerity to kill a worshiper before his God for whatever reason or cause has no regard for God and can never  claim to be fighting for Him as Boko Haram wants us to believe".

The governors called on Nigerians to be united and close ranks with the federal government in the war against insurgency.

They also tasked security agencies to remain committed in the fight against the insurgents, expressing confidence that Boko Haram menace would soon be history.

The South East Governors further called for more prayers by various religious groups in the country for divine intervention in the wicked plots of Nigeria's enemies to distablise her through insurgency.

They also appealed to the international community not to sit idle and watch Nigeria tackle her security challenges alone before the situation gets out of control.
