Very Strange for Military to Bomb IDP Camp, Very Strange – Fayose

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has commis­erated with families of the victims of Tuesday’s “ac­cidental” air strike by men of the Nigerian Air Force of ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’ in the Rann Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) camp in Borno State.
The governor, who said that it was strange that the military could “mistaken­ly” bomb an IDPs’ Camp that it created and aware of the location, called for thorough investigation by both the military authori­ties and the international community to ascertain what actually happened.
He chided President Muhammadu Buhari for jumping into conclusion that the air strike was a mistake, stressing that “by saying it was acciden­tal, the President already foreclosed investigation, which he ought to have ordered before jumping into conclusion.”
In a press release he issued on Wednesday through his Special As­sistant on Public Commu­nications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose maintained that “it is obvious that the Federal Government is still de­ceiving Nigerians on its handling of the Boko Ha­ram insurgency because it is strange that the same Boko Haram that they said had been defeated were the ones they claimed the military wanted to attack with fighter jet.”
“I sympathise with those hapless Nigerians who escaped death from the hands of Boko Ha­ram insurgents only to be killed by the same author­ities that should be pro­tecting them. May Allah (SWT) forgive their sins and grant them Al Jannah Fidau.
“It is also my prayers that the Almighty Allah (SWT) will console their families and grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“I also call on all neces­sary authorities in Nigeria as well as the international community to investigate the incident with a view to unravelling whether or not the air strike was a mistake. And if it was in­deed a mistake, what led to it must be unravelled,” the governor said.
