“Senator Makarfi considers the attack utterly cowardly and condemnable as innocent people were made soft targets, including those engaged in rendering humanitarian services. He urges for the intensification of the war against the insurgency in that part of the country as it has lingered for too long, even as he appeals to aid agencies in the country not to be deterred by this incident but be further emboldened by it so as to send a message to the insurgents that they will not be intimidated out of their commitment to rendering humanitarian services.

“He urges the government as well as the security agencies to ensure that no stone is left unturned in the efforts to rescue all abductees.

It is the belief of Senator Makarfi that a better approach is needed in the fight against the Boko Haram, which should include a tightening of the security architecture in all the affected areas, even as he warns against complacency occassioned by the belief that the insurgents have been decimated, reiterating his earlier statement that the Boko Haram cannot be said to have been defeated until every inch of Nigerian territory is rid of it and people therein return to their legitimate pursuits without any fear.
