“The fact on the ground supports what we are saying. The President swore under Quoran to protect the lives of citizens. He has failed to do so,” he said.

In another development, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Director of Publicity and Advocacy of NEF has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to strengthen the security agencies in the country.

The elders said this will help avert wanton killings in the country.

He said: “We are outraged at the killings of farmers in Borno and many other people on a daily basis in many parts of the north.
“The lame excuse that farmers had not sought permission from the military to harvest produce merely exposes the misleading claims that our military has secured vast territories from the insurgency.

“These killings and the reality they expose will make relocation of citizens and resumption of economic activities a lot more difficult to achieve even for a leadership that attaches priority to them.”
