MURIC condemns killing of northern woman, children

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has condemned the killing of an Hausa woman along with her children in Anambra State.

The sad incident occurred on Sunday, 22 May.

In a statement on Wednesday, MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, said the killing is condemnable.

“It is brutish, horrendous and barbaric. No family deserves to be wiped out in this manner,” Akintola said.

He urged security agencies to smoke out the killers and bring them to justice.

“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,” he said.

Akintola said MURIC has never been selective in its assessments, being the first to condemn the killing of Deborah Samuel.

He also urged people in the north not to retaliate as vengeance will only ignite a cycle of violence.

He said, “Nigeria needs peace at this crucial time. Therefore, nobody should embark on reprisal killing. It will only compound the problem.”
