Baba-Ahmed, in a statement described Sani’s remark as ‘most insensitive’.

The statement reads: “Northern Elders Forum (NEF) joins Nigerians in expressing outrage at the killings of farmers in Borno State and many other people on a daily basis in many parts of the North. Our voices have been raised without pause for a long time against pervasive insecurity in our region.

“These particular killings have been greeted by the most insensitive response by spokespersons of the President. The lame excuse that farmers had not sought permission from the military to harvest produce merely exposed the misleading claims that our military had secured vast territories from the insurgency.

“Under this administration, life has lost its value, and more and more citizens are coming under the influence of criminals. We do not see any evidence of a willingness on the part of President Buhari to honor his oath to provide security over Nigerians.

“In civilized nations, leaders who fail so spectacularly to provide security will do the honorable thing and resign.”

NEF said Buhari should toe the path of honor and resign for failing to ensure the security of Nigerians.
