ACF, which also called on security agencies to be professional in their conduct, asked the military to restructure its security architecture in the fight against Boko Haram in the North-East.

National Publicity Secretary of the group, Alhaji Muhammad Ibrahim-Biu, stated this in Kaduna Thursday, against the backdrop of Auno carnage which, it argued, could have been avoided where the military professional enough.

He said in a statement: “The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, is saddened and pained by the gruesome killing of innocent passengers that were locked out at Auno village on Damaturu-Maiduguri Road, a few kilometres away from Maiduguri by Boko Haram terrorists on Sunday.

“Media reports indicated that many lives were lost and vehicles burnt with innocent commuters inside and property worth millions of naira destroyed.

“This dastardly act by the Boko Haram terrorists on commuters and villagers was callous, barbaric and condemnable.

“ACF had on several occasions appealed to the military and security agencies to be proactive, employ professionalism and strategy in the war against terrorism in order to avoid colossal damages.

“The Auno massacre by the terrorists could have been avoided if the necessary security measures were observed. This unfortunate incident and many others that have occurred on the Damaturu-Maiduguri Road recently, have placed commuters plying the road in a state of fear and despair.
