We also wish to meet with you as father and sons to discuss this communiqué and other things that ideally should not be on the pages of paper.

RE: MAIDUGURI ABATTOIR NOT BOKO HARAM ENCLAVE - BUTCHERS.

We feel it is appropriate to address the so called National Union of Butchers, Maiduguri Branch for defending its members in the statements formally signed by the Union chairman, Abubakar Ngula and its Secretary General Stephen David which was published in Daily Trust Newspapers on page 4 of Monday 25/11/ 2013 under category of news written by Yahaya Ibrahim as the reporter. They claimed that Gwoza Christian Community Association (GCCA) statements was 'reckless, misguided and capable of injuring the peace of the Abattoir and the state in general'; they quoted a statement in an open letter published in Daily Trust Advertorial page (25) of 11/11/2013 saying that 'Abattoir is a breeding ground for Boko Haram'.

It sounds very illogical for us to get a response from Butchers associations who are not even part of our consideration. The letter was written to Governor Kashim Shettima over the plight of Christians in Gwoza local government, but Since the chairman decided to run to media to claim that the Abattoir can never be a breeding ground for terrorists without even investigating the story, we have decided to reveal the actual reason why we made that statement so that the general public will understand the mischievous activities of the Abattoir members that serve as not only breeding ground for insurgents but training apartment of graduating Boko Haram commanders.

AN OPEN LETTER TO BORNO STATE GOVERNOR, HIS EXCELLENCY ALH. KASHIM SHETTIMA ON THE DELIBERATE LACK OF CONCERN OVER THE PLIGHTS OF CHRISTIANS IN GWOZA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA IN THE WAKE OF SPONSORED ANNIHILATION OF ITS MEMBERS

Your Excellency,

We the members of the Gwoza Christian Community Association (GCCA) hereby wish to express our protest openly since all other avenues to see you have failed. This is with regards to the plight of Christians in Gwoza Local Government Area which points to the very fact of government involvement by some senior political functionaries in support for the total annihilation of Christian in Gwoza. The Gwoza Christian Community had earlier published such an open letter to the President (FRN) when this annihilation started in the Nations News Paper of Monday, May 13, 2013.

You are, we believe; is in the picture of all that happening in Gwoza LGA as the chief security officer of this great state. There is no doubt that insurgency activities are the main bane of contentions towards not only the economic and social development in Borno State, but most especially towards the political and religious harmony built on trust and respect. We believe that while you are busy amending fences elsewhere, others, including may be those that you trust, are also busy breaking the fence elsewhere. This makes your task difficult especially in a situation where there is hypocrisy and sycophancy existing in the camp.
