Socio-political activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, Aisha Yesufu, has condemned the attacks on law enforcement establishments in the South-Eastern part of Nigeria.
Tensions have been high in the region for months as hoodlums continue to unleash mayhem on law enforcement establishments, claiming the lives of some security operatives of the Nigerian Police.

More than 20 structures belonging to NPF as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have been razed in the process.

WUZUPNIGERIA reported that at least four police officers were killed during on Tuesday during a fresh attack on the Divisional Police Headquarters in Iwollo, Ezeagu Local Government Area of the Enugu state.

Reacting to the attack, Yesufu expressed heartbreak over the attacks, reminding those hailing the attacks the effects of Boko Haram terrorism in the North.

She tweeted: "We have not been able to deal with Boko Haram and now another one is brewing. I woke up really heartbroken at the new terror we are toying with.

"Boko haram didn't start by unleashing terror. It started by they fighting security agents that were killing them. People hailed them!

"Boko haram members were hailed by the locals for fighting back and killing security agents that had killed their members and even their leader. People jubilated because they were fighting security agents that were killing people until they turned that terror on the people

"There is a reason why wrong is wrong. Crime and terror can never be justified no matter the justification you have. You cannot be the monster that wronged you. No matter how flawed the system is, it is still the system and we should fix it and ensure justice for all

"When Boko haram started abducting women and children, they said it was as retaliation because government had also arrested their wives and children in a bid to get them. The locals hailed until the bullets and bombs turned on them.

"If you keep justifying killings, maiming, arson just remember that it goes round. It destroys."
