Popular Human Rights Activists and Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has told the Federal Government that their excuses are no longer acceptable and that they need to start taking responsibility.
Falana while reacting to the recent killing of the undergraduate students from Greenfield University by their abductors in Kaduna State said this in a statement on Sunday titled, ‘Governments Must Rescue All Abducted Students.
The activist sympathized with the families of the deceased and at the same time called on the government to immediately secure the release of the remaining students.
The statement read in part: “Instead of only engaging in occasional expression of sympathy with families of abducted victims who are often killed by bandits and terrorists, the Federal Government and the various state governments should acquire vital security gadgets to track criminal gangs that are terrorising unarmed citizens.
“Since the Federal and Kaduna State Governments should bear full responsibility for the barbaric murder of the unarmed undergraduates and other citizens by criminal elements official wailing is no longer acceptable.
“In view of the worsening insecurity in the country we are compelled to call on the Nigerian people to mount pressure on the governments to secure the life and property of every person in Nigeria” he said.
