Bello further stated that KACRAN is against the criminal action, noting that such extra judicial killing is creating more harm or danger to the nation’s fragile security system more especially at this time when all well meaning Nigerians are praying ardently for the country’s peace and security.
He, on behalf of the association, called on the federal and state governments to expedite action in fishing out and arresting perpetrators of the dastardly act and deal with them decisively in order to serve as a deterrent to others.
