Boko Haram: Camerounian delegation visits Gov Sheriff

By Ndahi Marama

A powerful delegation from Cameroun Republic numbering about eighty (80) and led by the His Royal Highness (HRH) the Shehu of Mandara of Mora Province, Mai Abba Bukar has commiserated with Governor Ali Modu Sheriff and the people of Borno State over the Boko Haram insurgency which erupted on the 26th July this year, a situation that had left over 800 people killed.

Shehu Bukar, who led the delegation to the Government House Maiduguri, the state capital, expressed dissatisfaction with the way and manner some people are using religion to cause disharmony, chaos and insecurity in a democratic society, which he said is totally ungodly and unlawful.

The monarch stated that Borno and Cameroun share the same international boundaries and whatever affects one, affects the other in all ramifications. He stressed that, from time immemorial, the people of Mandara and the Kanuris have been living together peacefully with one another, as both share almost the same culture and religion.

He stated that there is no society that can witness sustainable development when there is no peace and tolerance of one another, and advised those that are hiding under religion to cause disharmony to desist from such act, as posterity would surely judge them at the end of time.

Shehu Bukar therefore thanked the Federal Government under President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, Governor Ali Sheriff, Traditional Rulers, security agencies and the people of the state for their efforts in controlling the situation, and prayed Allah for his protection and guidance as well as to forestall future occurrence.
