The killing of Mrs. Harira Jubril, a pregnant woman, and her children in Anambra State, South-East Nigeria, is not only callous, brutal and demeaning, but capable of creating ethnic conflict across the country; and hence, must be condemned by all, according to Vice-President (Prof.) Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

ConsumerConnect reports Mr. Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Media and Publicity Office of the Vice-President, stated Prof. Osinbajo Wednesday, May 25, 2022, while speaking with reporters shortly after meeting All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates in Makurdi, Benue State.

Akande noted that the forum was in continuation of the Vice-President’s nationwide consultations with party delegates and other stakeholders ahead of the APC presidential primaries.

Osinbajo stated: “What took place in Anambra with the killing of a woman and her children demeans us all.

“It is such a callous act and so brutal. And I think that we must be very careful, as a people, with this type of killings that are going on, especially where it is obviously to create such horror, annoyance, and create a situation where we begin to have ethnic conflicts again and all that.”

He also noted: “And I think we must all be careful and condemn it in the strongest possible terms, there is no excuse for it whatsoever.

“We must not allow a situation where we get to the point where we even countenance individuals who can do this sort of thing.”

The Vice-President further said: “How does anyone kill a woman and her children? I think it is such a terrible tragedy condemnable by all.

“Mr. President has spoken about it and I just want to join my voice with those of others who are completely outraged by it.”

In his statement earlier Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari very strongly condemned what he described as “wild, barbarous and wanton killings of innocent people” in the South-East as well as the other parts of the country, which he also described as “deeply distressing.”

President Buhari then, warned the perpetrators of these acts to expect a tough response from the security forces.
