Igangan killings: MSSN calls for arrest, prosecution of perpetrators

The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has urged the federal government and the security agencies to ensure arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of Igangan.  

A statement jointly signed by the B-Zone Amir/Zonal Coordinator, Qaasim Babatunde Odedeji, Secretary, Abdul-Jalil Abdur-Razaq and the Public Relations Officer, Mos’ud Tohir, and made available to newsmen in Osogbo Wednesday, condemned the killings, saying “Nigerians are tired of excuses.”

The statement described the killings as “irresponsible heartless act by forces who are bent on subverting the corporate existence of the country.”

“We call on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Inspector general of Police, the States’ Governors, and  all security agencies to brace up to the challenge of spiralled insecurity to save the country from sliding into nothingness. Nigerians are tired of excuses!

“Those who, with callous inhumanity, snuffed life out of innocent lives in their sleep are demonic, ruthless and must be fished out to squarely face the consequences of their depravity.

“We urge all Nigerians, especially from the Southern parts of the country to double their vigilance and report suspicious conducts to assist security operatives detect and arrest coordinated attacks promptly ever before their eventual hatching.

“We wish to commiserate with the families of the slain compatriots and solemnly pray that the Almighty Allah shall grant them the fortitude to bear their irreparable loss,” it added.
