He said that our condemnation of the said senseless and unthinkable act had to do with the fact that we as peace loving association always feel extremely sad to hear any loss of lives or property in Nigeria or anywhere in the world.

The statement added that, “we are against the said criminal action for the reason that, our association believe that any extra judicious killing in the nation will create more harm or danger to the nation’s fragile security system more especially at this time when all  well meaning Nigerians are praying ardently for the country’s peace and security.
