Gov Soludo Owes The Nation A Sacred Duty To Fish Out Killers Of Mrs Jubril And Her Children — Adegboruwa SAN
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Human Rights Activist, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa SAN has described the cold-blooded murder of one Mrs. Harira Jibril and her three children in Anambra State as “brutal and senseless”.
In a statement made available to The Lawyer, the vocal Rights Activist also described the killing as an “insensate act of terrorism”, decrying the manner in which their lives and that of her unborn baby were cruelly terminated.
He demanded that there be no hiding place for the perpetrators and charged Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo to ensure the criminals are brought to book.
“No reason has been given and none could have been proffered for this criminal act of brutality, extended even to toddlers and the unborn. There should be no hiding place for the barbarians; so Governor Charles Soludo owes the nation the sacred duty to do all in his powers to fish out those who killed Mrs Jubril and her children, in their prime. The concept of national unity will be a mirage if citizens do not feel safe in other locations different from their places of origin.”
While urging Nigerians to resist any attempt by criminals to fuel an inter-ethnic conflict in the country, he said; “If the primitive and evil motive of this mindless act is to provoke rival ethnic war, I urge the people of Nigeria to resist this by continuously holding government accountable to the discharge of its constitutional responsibilities of guaranteeing the lives and security of the people.”
He concluded by condoling with the bereaved husband while hoping that the killers be brought to book soonest.
“My heartfelt condolences go to Mr. Jibril Ahmed, the good people of Adamawa and Anambra States, believing that in no time, the perpetrators will be unveiled and made to face the wrath of the law, no matter their status or motive.
A criminal act cannot be justified under any guise at all and the perpetrators must be traced and dealt with according to law, by all means necessary.”
