Senator Shehu Sani, a Nigerian senator and human rights activist has reacted to the gruesome killing of 42 people by some assailants in Sokoto state.

According to reports, assailants attacked some travellers at Sabon Birni to Rijiyar Ladan village in Sabon Birni local government area of the state on Monday, December 6, 2021.

Reacting to the news, Sani stated that no place in the world can be compared to Nigeria in terms of the lack of value placed on human life.

He said that in Nigeria, human lives are cheap, dispensable and disposable.

"Forty two people were gruesomely killed and roasted in Sokoto. This is an atrocity that could have triggered an outrage and utter condemnation of the failure of the Government if it had happened under the previous administration.

"Those who are silent are the same as those who are indifferent; those who are indifferent are the same as those who perpetrated that crime.

"Nowhere in the World are human lives so cheap, dispensable and disposable," his post read.
