The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday lamented what it called incessant but avoidable killings of gallant soldiers by insurgents in the North-east. The party also demanded explanations from President Muhammadu Buhari.

The PDP further claimed that Nigerians are apprehensive over the situation because the Buhari Presidency has been distracting the military by dragging Service Chiefs to participate in his re-election campaign activities, instead of concentrating on their statutory duties.

A statement by the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “After a thorough review of the killings, especially that of over 70 soldiers of the 157 Task Force Battalion in Melete, Borno State, by invading insurgents, who reportedly sent a threat letter last Friday, to take over military locations in the area, the PDP insists on clarifications from the Buhari Presidency.

“This is particularly against the backdrop of earlier claims by the Federal Government that insurgents operating in the northeast have been defeated.

“The party is very worried by reports of alleged compromises, neglect and inattention to military formations in the northeast leading to the vulnerability of our beloved soldiers.

“This is in addition to apprehensions by Nigerians that the Buhari Presidency has been distracting our military by dragging our Service Chiefs to participate in his re-election campaign activities, instead of concentrating on their statutory duties.
