Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has urged the Federal Government to review its negotiation strategy with Boko Haram insurgents and ensure that victims still in captivity of the sect, including Leah Sharibu and the Chibok girls are rescued.

ACF in a statement by its national publicity secretary Mohammed Ibrahim Biu also called on the government to intensify its rescue operations in order to assuage the fears of Nigerians of what may happen to those still in captivity.

The ACF expressed shock and sadness over the killing of four aid workers including a woman by the Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State on Saturday.

The forum extended its condolences to the families of those executed and equally commiserated with the families of victims still in captivity.

“It would be recalled that sometimes last year two female aid workers with International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) were abducted by the terrorists during an attack on the military base in Rann, Borno State, and were subsequently executed by the terrorists on the ground that the Federal Government (FG) failed to meet up some of their demands.

“The recent action of the terrorists to say the least was callous, barbaric and inhuman and totally against the tenets of Islam and humanity. The killing is clear desecration of Islam which preaches sacred inviolability of the individual, “the forum stated.
