Fatima: Islamic group reacts to killing of pregnant Hausa woman, four children in Anambra
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to the killing of an Hausa woman, identified as Fatima, along with her four children in Anambra State.
Fatima and her little kids were killed on Sunday, 22nd May, 2022 by yet-to-be-identified men.
MURIC condemned the heinous act in a statement signed on Wednesday by the group’s director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.
The pregnant Hausa woman was brutally murdered along with her children in Anambra.
MURIC said, “We strongly condemn this killing. It is brutish, horrendous and barbaric. No family deserves to be wiped out in this manner.
“We call on the security agencies to smoke out the killers and bring them to justice. At the same time, we ask all men of conscience to speak up and condemn this killing.
“In particular, we ask the British Embassy in Nigeria and other Western sources to condemn this ugly incident with the same vehemence that they condemned other killings.
“In the same vein, we charge all social critics who have condemned other killings to speak up against this latest brutality.
“We call for fairness in comments on developments in Nigeria. Selective condemnation of evil cannot bring peace either to Nigeria or to the world at large.
“In the meantime we appeal to Northerners not to retaliate. Vengeance will only ignite a cycle of violence. Nigeria needs peace at this crucial time. Therefore, nobody should embark on reprisal killing. It will only compound the problem.”
