Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has described as unconscionable last weekend’s killing of rice farmers by terrorists at Zabarmari community in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.

Governor Diri in a condolence message to Governor Babagana Zulum and the people of Borno State, said the mindless massacre of defenceless citizens of the state was highly condemnable.

His spokesman, Mr. Daniel Alabrah, said in a statement that the governor commiserated with the people of Borno over the unfortunate loss of lives.

He noted that the bloodletting in the North East and Borno in particular was of concern to other sections of the country and indeed the Niger Delta.

Governor Diri called on the military and other security agencies to redouble their effort in order to end the scourge of insecurity that is ravaging that part of the country.

He further noted that security is too important to be politicised as all hands and efforts needed to be galvanised to make the country safer for everyone.

“On behalf of the government and people of Bayelsa State, I extend our deep sympathy to Governor Babagana Zulum and our brothers in Borno State.

“The mindless and unconscionable massacre of over 40 rice farmers by bloodthirsty terrorists in Zabarmari community in Borno State is highly condemnable.

“The bloodletting and human carnage in the North East, and Borno in particular, is of serious concern to us in the Niger Delta. We share in your pain. Insecurity has no borders.

“Human life is precious. Those who take pleasure in destroying what they cannot create have a date with the owner of our lives,” Governor Diri said.
