Abuja, 07 February, 2022 / 5:03 pm (ACI Africa).
Terrorists in Nigeria have scaled up their activities, killing large numbers of innocent civilians using high-end military equipment especially in Southern Kaduna communities, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has observed, and called for global cooperation in stemming violence in communities that are most affected in the West African country.
CSW Founder President Mervyn Thomas found it “concerning and unacceptable” that terrorists in Nigeria have become too powerful and are not being intercepted.
“It is both concerning and unacceptable that these terrorists have amassed significant firepower and are able to launch successive attacks in the same area at any time and in large numbers without being intercepted,” Mr. Mervyn says in the February 4 CSW report.
Equally unacceptable, he adds, “is the muted response, both locally and internationally, to the remorseless death, destruction and displacement occurring in southern Kaduna and elsewhere in central Nigeria.”
CSW Founder President suggests that the international community supports Nigerian authorities in formulating a strategy that will help stop terrorists in the West African nation.
