Super Eagles Captain, Ahmed Musa and defender Abdullahi Shehu have condemned the killings of 43 rice farmers by Boko Haram terrorists in Zabarmari town located in the Jere local government of Borno State.
The farmers were reportedly attacked and slaughtered by the insurgents while harvesting their produce on Saturday, November 28.
Saddened by the callous murder of the innocent farmers, Musa took to his Instagram page to express his grief and urged Nigerians to embrace peace.
“The change we want has to start with us,” the former Kano Pillars FC attacker wrote.
“If we truly love one another, things like this won’t be happening. I pray that this would be the last of its kind and we begin to experience the peace we should truly enjoy in the land,” he added.
His colleague, Shehu also took to social media to condemn the dastardly act, and expressed his sympathy with the victims and government of Borno State.
“I’m heartbroken, sad to read about the sad incident in Zabarmari, Borno State. I sympathize with the victims,” the Omonia Nicosia defender said.
