Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the group’s director, condemned the killings in a statement made in Lagos, calling them inhumane.
“About 58 people were reported killed in an attack by terrorists in Zamfara State on Jan. 4.
“About 300 terrorists on motorcycles stormed eight villages in Anka Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday and another 10 villages in Bukkuyum district on Wednesday and Thursday.
“We strongly condemn these killings. They are callous, cowardly, disheartening, horrific and barbaric.
“We call on security agencies to leave no stone unturned in apprehending the perpetrators,” he said.
He said that the killings were retaliation for terrorists killed in air raids by Nigerian military fighter jets last week.
“Terrorists must have no place to hide. They must be hounded from pillar to post until they all surrender or are totally eliminated.
“Nigeria will not be defeated by sadistic renegades, rebellious subjects and enemies of peace,” he said.
“We also condole with the state executive, the traditional rulers and the good people of the state.
“Our hearts bleed for the bereaved families. May Allah have mercy on the direct victims and give their families the fortitude to bear the losses,” he prayed.
