The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists NAWOJ has condemned in strong terms the killing of innocent rice farmers in Zabarmari in Borno State.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by NAWOJ National President, Mrs Ladi Bala,and National Secretary, Mrs Helen Udofa.
NAWOJ particularly expresses concern that it is equally saddened by the increasing spate of insecurity and constant threat to lives of Nigerians across the country and calls for renewed efforts to make the states particularly the North-east region safe again.
NAWOJ while commiserating with the government and the good people of Borno State over the inhuman, unfortunate and unacceptable incident, appeals to Governor Babagana Zulum to give widows of the deceased appointments as alternative sources of income to alleviate their sufferings.
The Association welcomes the marching order by President Muhammadu Buhari to the military to take the battle to the enclave of the terrorists.
