A group under the auspices of the Initiative for Conciliation and Protection of Rights advocated for palliative care for victims of terrorism and banditry to cushion the effects of the ugly trend.
This is contained in a statement jointly signed by Mable Bremah, Godwin Ekoja and Halima Bukar, respectively Deputy Secretary, PRO and Deputy Secretary of the organization at Birnin Kebbi on Saturday.
He observed that the victims of terrorism, banditry and the oppressed deserved better treatment to enable these victims to resettle and gradually recover from their trauma.
The statement urged Nigerians, regardless of their ethnicity, religion and politics, to unite collectively to end the insecurity plaguing the country to pave the way for a better Nigeria.
He observed that Nigerians were living in an unprecedented time, a time when humans were rapidly returning to their primitive barbaric nature.
The statement added that the country was subject to an era of corruption, terrorism and oppression, adding that things were getting worse by the day.
“Lives are lost in great numbers, dreams shattered and hopes lost. This in turn led to great suffering, discouragement and even more terror.
“It used to be a group of people called ‘Boko-Haram’ who hated contemporary education.
“But then, contrary to the portrayed image of this seemingly phantom terrorist group, their attacks spilled over to innocent worship centers, markets and gatherings, evoking suspicions from critical thinkers.
“These attacks have greatly affected the Nigerian people, both directly and indirectly. Arguably the most affected region is northeastern Nigeria, but the attacks over the years have affected many different ethnic and religious groups, ”he said.
He said everyone has a duty to fulfill their duty for the betterment of Nigeria in their own way.
