Lawyers Alert has condemned the gruesome killing of pregnant Fatima and her four children by so-called unknown gunmen.
Fatima who was pregnant was reportedly killed alongside her four children at Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra state by some gunmen.
This act is inhumane and there is no justification whatsoever for it.
It is quite sad to see that the country is contending with insecurity and a series of other crises which are leading to serious loss of lives and properties.
Lawyers Alert wishes to state for the umpteenth time that the taking of lives without the judicial process can never be justified.
The seeming division of the country along tribal and religious lines is most unfortunate.
We can only urge the various governments to double their efforts at stabilizing the country and stemming the tide of insecurity that is currently prevalent.
Finally Lawyers Alert urges individuals and groups all over the country to embrace peace and oneness.
