MINORITY REPS DEMANDS END TO KILLINGS IN PLATEAU STATE                                                                           27-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                       The Minority caucus in the House of Representatives has urged the Security Committees in the house to draw strength from sections 88 and 89 of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution, as amended, to commence a proper and detailed investigation into the persistent murders in Plateau State and profer legislative solutions.

The leader of the caucus Mr Kingsley Chinda, who made the call in a statement, also charged security agencies to commit more and be unrelenting in tackling the crisis until victory is assured for all.

Mr Chinda observed that the invasion of five communities and the killings of over seventy persons by unknown gunmen in Gashish and Ropp Districts of Barkin Ladi and Bokkos local government areas of Plateau State on Christmas eve have raised national and global concerns about the security of persons in Nigeria, particularly in the North Central region and murders that have gone for too long on the Plateau.

“These murders, which have become the cyclical outcomes of inter-communal violence in Plateau State, show how grievances between communities can be turned into organised violence by unidentified groups and persons who use violent methods to address perceived differences.

“When Jos was turned into an infernal theatre and a killing field in which one thousand people lost their lives in 2001, many thought that the violent expressions of differences had reached the zenith; but, unfortunately, more attacks followed in Jos, Wase, Langtang North, Langtang South, Shendam, Mikang, Qua’an Pan, Barkin Ladi, and Riyom, resulting in many deaths and the destruction of properties.

Chinda also expressed the condolences of the caucus to the Government and People of Plateau State over the murders.
