The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has reacted to the gruesome murder of 43 rice farmers at Koshebe village in Borno State by marauding Boko Haram insurgents.

The PFN in a statement issued on Thursday by its National President, Felix Omobude, expressed sadness over the recent gruesome killing of the rice farmers who were all from Zabarmari community in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.

The PFN also recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari came into office on the back of a promise to prioritise security, and also added that the recent turn of events in the country, with banditry, kidnapping and violence running riot is sad and unfortunate.
