Senator Shehu Sani has lamented rising insecurity challenges across the nation while reacting to the killing of about 42 persons in Sokoto State recently.
The former lawmaker, who represented the Kaduna Central during the 8th National Assembly, in a post on his verified Facebook page, said the incident would have triggered outrage if it were the previous government.
The post reads, “Forty two people were gruesomely killed and roasted in Sokoto. This is an atrocity that could have triggered an outrage and utter condemnation of the failure of the Government, if it had happened under the previous administration.
“Those who are silent are same as those who are indifferent; those who are indifferent are same as those who perpetrated that crime.
“Nowhere in the World are human lives so cheap, dispensable and disposable”.
Armed bandits on Tuesday ambushed some travellers on a road linking Sabon Birni local government area and the village of Gidan Bawa in the State and burnt them alive.
