The Ulama Forum in Nigeria has demanded a full life compensation to the families of the pregnant woman, her four children, and six other northerners killed in Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State on Sunday, 22nd May 2022.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the Forum’s Convener, Aminu Inuwa Muhammad and its Secretary, Dr Sa’id Ahmad Dukawa.
According to the statement, late Harira, her children and six others were murdered for being Muslims of Northern Nigeria extraction, and as such the forum demanded for life compensation.
‘We strongly call on the Anambra State Government to pay full life compensation to the relatives of the deceased, take measures to put a final stop to the barbaric and terrorist acts as well as apologize to the Muslim community the world over while we call upon Muslims in Northern Nigeria and other places to resist the temptation of any unlawful reaction,’ said the statement.
The forum also called on the Federal Government of Nigeria and the security agencies to demonstrate that they are capable of protecting the lives and property of Nigerian citizens irrespective of where they decide to reside in Nigeria.
Suspected gunmen had on Sunday killed a woman, her four children, and six others, all of them of northern extraction in Anambra State.
The Eastern Updates reports that they were buried on Wednesday in Anambra State.
The killings marked a new low in the heightened attacks on non-indigenes by IPOB terrorists who are also attacking the symbol of authority including the police and the military.
Natives of Anambra State and the South East, in general, have not also been spared by the IPOB terrorists who have been wreaking havoc for a long time amid agitation for secession.
