Boko Haram terroristsFollowing the escalating spate of needless killings in some parts of Northeastern states of the country, the Christian Elders Forum of northern states has called for a joint action to put an end to the bloody onslaught which has claimed over 2, 000 lives in the last six months.

Chairman of the group, Mr. Olaiya Phillips, in a statement issued in Abuja, on Friday, decried the alarming increase in the violent attacks by the dreaded terror group, Boko Haram.

The group condemned in particular, the recent killing of at least 29 students of the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State.

In the statement titled “If you tolerate this, your children will be next”, the group bemoaned the seeming invincibility of the insurgents.

He, however, expressed the belief that concerted efforts of all Nigerians irrespective of religious beliefs, coupled with intensive prayers, will ultimately earn the nation victory.

He said, “We know only too well the many horrendous crimes committed against the Christian community in northern Nigeria, and also of the crimes committed against our Muslim neighbours by the same people.

“It is upsetting to highlight that the innocent victims of Buni Yadi were not the first (set of) children whose lives have been cut short at the hands of these terrorists. And the soul-destroying fact is that, judging by the present security situation in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, they might not be the last. Boko Haram is sucking lifeblood from our nation. A generation that ought to take our nation forward to a better future is being cut down and taken away from us”.
