 The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has condemned the early morning bombing at a mosque in the commercial town of Mubi in Adamawa State in which over 50 innocent lives were wasted by Boko Haram terrorists, describing it as atrocious, unconscionable, despicable and outrageous.

In the media statement endorsed jointly by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss ZainabYusuf, HURIWA condemned the gruesome murder of innocent moslem worshippers by the "depraved bunch of Islamic fundamentalists" under the banner of Boko Haram terrorists.

The group blamed the current administration for unnecessarily using the military to carry out politically motivated operations such as Operation Python Dance, Crocodile Smiles and monitoring of Anambra State governorship election, when the Federal Government was expected to strategically deploy soldiers to confront Boko Haram, "which is the number three most dreaded terror network in the world."

It also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prioritise the war on terror and focus exclusively on strategically arming and motivating the Nigerian troops to expand the frontiers of counter-terror combats so as to clinically finish off Boko Haram terrorists that have started to recruit more attackers.

The Rights group charged the Federal Government to diligently prosecute all the detained Boko Haram terrorists, instead of the ongoing trial in camera in which hundreds of suspected armed terrorists were released back into the society in the guise of de-radicalisation and re-integration.

HURIWA blamed the current resurgence of Boko Haram terror attacks through coordinated suicide bombing squads on "the lack of political will on the part of the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Justice and the Office of the Federal Attorney General of the Federation to effectively and efficiently prosecute the hundreds of detained Boko Haram terrorists who have spent time in different military detention facilities and are gradually being freed by the political authority in Abuja in a misplaced programme of de-radicalisation instead of ensuring that all those Boko Haram terrorists whose hands are stained with the blood of the innocent are professionally prosecuted and punished severely for their atrocious crimes against humanity and for their blood-cuddling terror campaigns over the last few years that have resulted in the massacre of over 30,000 Nigerians."

The Rights group challenged the Nigerian government to increase the quality of weapons being distributed to the fighting forces of the Nigerian security services and to upgrade the levels of intelligence gathering capacity of the Nigerian security services to be able to preempt and prevent planned bombing attacks by the terrorists.

HURIWA also warned against corruption in the management of the fund meant for counter-terror war, stating: “The dimension of high casualties of civilian targets in the Mubi mosque attack and the many other attacks in the North East of Nigeria by armed Boko Haram terrorists have assumed dangerous scales demanding clinical military operations to decimate, degrade and incapacitate the armed Boko Haram terrorists who are gaining more grounds to launch deadly attacks on soft targets resulting in mass casualties.

“The Nigerian military must be allowed to concentrate on this counter-terror combats instead of deploying the military to carry out ordinary routine policing jobs such as election security that at best amounted to the misplacement of priority especially at a time that the territorial integrity of Nigeria is facing grave threats from Boko Haram terrorists.”
