Maritime workers demand tougher action against Boko Haram

BY VICTOR AHIUMA-YOUNG

MARITIME Workers of Nigeria, MWUN, has condemned the increasing insecurity in the country, which had led to wanton destruction of hundreds of  lives and property, the latest being last Monday’s Nyanya Motor Park, Abuja, bombing by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

MWUN lamented yesterday that as if Nyanya carnage was not bad enough, more than 100 female students were abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS, in Bornu, Bornu State, barely 24 hours later, with their where about yet unknown.

President-General of MWUN, Tony Emmanuel Nted,  recalled in a chat with Vanguard  that on February 25, 2014, no fewer than 43 students of Federal Government College, FGC, Buni, Yadi, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State were murdered, while over 25 others abducted during the senselessness killing had simply disappeared till today without trace.

He said:  “These killings are not only callous, barbaric and senseless, they also have no justification whatsoever.
“The Federal Government must take a stiffer stance on Boko Haram and any other insurgent group that had apparently declared war on the Nigerian nation; they must not be handled with kid-glove.

“From all intent and purpose, these people have declared war and the government must respond appropriately. The security agencies should re-jig their operational methods.  We cannot continue like this. Enough is enough.
“All decent and right thinking Nigerians must rise up against these enemies and provide useful information that will help to root out these pigs. They are not fit to live among normal human beings.
