The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has condemned renewed killing of innocent Nigerians in Borno State by terrorist elements in the North East part of the country, assuring Nigerians that the insurgency will soon be history.

At least 44 people have been shot dead at a mosque in north-eastern Nigeria, officials in Borno state say.

Men dressed in military camouflage arrived in Konduga town on Sunday morning and shot or hacked to death dozens of people returning from morning prayers, two residents said.

The Speaker described as barbaric, the brazen attack on security operatives and killing of innocent worshippers in Konduga.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal charged security operatives to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly act and bring them to justice.

He urged Nigerians not to despair, saying the dark period of wanton killings in the country will soon be a thing of the past.

While praying for the repose of the souls of those who died, Tambuwal prayed to God to give their families the fortitude to bear the losses.
