The Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, has expressed sadness over the loss of Suleiman Bisalla, one of its members and the Managing Editor, North, of the New Telegraph Newspapers, in the EMAB plaza bombing, in Abuja on Wednesday.
Bisalla died alongside at least 20 other persons in the unfortunate incident.
“As we condole the Bisalla family, and the families of the other dead victims, we can’t but ask: where and who next? Nigeria, very sadly, has become one huge sepulcher, and death now very cheap. Unnatural deaths have become so commonplace, that Nigerians are almost becoming inured to the news of it, except those directly affected. This is not good for our common humanity,” the NGE said in a statement issued today.
Femi Adesina, President of the NGEwho signed the statement said,“We recognize the almost intractable nature of the insurgency in the land, and government is trying its level best. But it remains the bounden duty of government to secure the lives and property of the citizenry, and we, therefore, ask that our security agencies will not relent in carrying out their constitutionally prescribed duties. Terrorism must never get the better of us. Never. But we must devise new tactics and strategies to rein in the situation.”
