Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has

described the killing of dozens of students at the Federal Government

College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State as ignoble, wicked and horrendous.

In a statement issued in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Public

Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal tasked security agencies to redouble

their efforts and change their tactics especially now that those engaged

in the killings have increased their attacks on softer targets.

He said the only way to console the families of the victims and Nigerians

is by fishing out perpetrators of the dastardly act by bringing them

justice.
“While attending prayers organised to mark the 89th birthday celebration

of former President Shehu Shagari in Sokoto, my attention was drawn to the

horrendous act of barbarity visited on innocent college students in Yobe

State.
“My first thoughts go to the families and friends of the kids brutally

gunned down in an act of cowardice by people whose humanity must be called

to question.
“While we must all join hands to bring this insanity to an end, we must

however bear in mind that we are running out of excuses in our

responsibility to our citizens.
“We in the House of Representatives feel the grief and pain of the

families of the victims. In this their hour of need, we will stand with

them hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder. We assure them that as brothers,

we will continue to confront headlong, the threats of terror facing our

nation, and we know we will come out stronger, and victorious.”

While expressing sympathy with the families of the victims, Tambuwal urged

Nigerians to be more vigilant and to help security agencies with useful

information that will help to secure their areas.
