Anambra state House of Assembly has condemned the killings of about 50 Nigerian students at Yobe state College of Agriculture last Sunday, 29th September.

The Lawmakers who described it as inhumane and barbaric act, said they were shocked at the incident and called on security agencies to sit-up on their duties in order to prevent future occurrences.

The member representing Aguata 2. Constituency, Hon. Ikemefune Uzoezie raised the issue in the hallow chamber urging his colleagues to condemn it in its entirety even as he called President Goodluck Jonathan to investigate the matter to fish out the culprits and bring them to book.

It would be recalled that group of people in Army camouflaged uniforms suspected to be members of Bokoharam insurgency invaded four hotels occupied by male students and massacred about 50 while asleep in their dormitory at Yobe state College of Agriculture, Gujba, Damaturu, the state capital, inflict others with injuries as thousands free for lives.

The College Provost, Molima Idi Mato had earlier confirmed the incident but noted that deceased were mostly Muslims and their corpses had also been deposited to morgue in Damaturu specialist Hospital while normalcy has returned to the institution as well as President Jonathan directed securities to clamp the college.

Thenigerianvoice reported that Yobe is among the states in the North-Eastern part of the country President Jonathan declared state of emergency in May 14th this year.

However, the town has been the hubs of Islamic terrorist who had butchered millions of Nigerians including Christians and Moslems, young and old as a result of the country's refusal to grant it Islamic state.

Similarly, the Lawmakers also commiserated with Ondo state government and families of those who lost lives and properties while the aircraft conveying the body's of late Governor of Ondo state, Dr. Olusegun Agagu crashed yesterday.
