Boko Haram: Group Condemns Bomb Attacks, Killings


The Reformed Ogboni Fraternity Incorporated (ROF), has condemned, in strong terms, the spate of bomb attacks and killings in some parts of the country, particularly those on the United Nations (UN) building and the Police Force Headquarters in Abuja, saying they have negative effect on the nation.

The Olori Oluwo of the organisation, Otunba Francis Meshioye, in a news release made available to Lagos Bulletin, noted that terrorism and bomb attacks, which have become the order of the day, were not part of Nigerian culture and as such, everything should be done with utmost urgency, to put a halt to what he described as ‘evil acts.’

According to Meshioye, “it is the standpoint of The Reformed Ogboni Fraternity that all Nigerians should abhor shedding of blood or destruction of properties in the course of expressing grievances or attempting to resolve perceived injustices,” urging those involved to use appropriate communication channel and dialogue to resolve the issues and grievances, embrace peace and integrate themselves into the Nigerian project of peace and unity.

On the recent Ibadan flood disaster, Otunba Meshioye called on all tiers of government in the country to make dredging, channelisation and drainage of all waterways and water receptors their immediate priority so as to prevent future recurrence of such disastrous and undesirable incidence of flooding across the nation.
