The Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC) hereby condoles with all men of goodwill and the entire citizenry of the
on the callous and gruesome murder of more than 15 people and the injury inflicted on many others. Nigerian State
Our struggle is a moral and just one. We have had no place for gun-runners, toddlers-abductors, bank robbers, commercial hostage-takers, prison breakers and bare-face murderers who go on foolish murderous rampage while their families are safe and secure in foreign lands.

In the next few days, the Central Command of the Joint Revolutionary Council will confer with Mujahid Dokubo-Asari to arrive at a final decision on this matter. Key decisions will be relayed to the press immediately.
The Struggle is on Course!
