JUST IN: Northern Senators Reacts to Plateau Mass Killings, Issues Demands

The Northern Senators’ Forum (NSF) has reacted to the weekend’s massacre that claimed over 145 lives in Plateau State.

The senators have labelled the attacks “indefensible, devoid of reason, and a stain on our shared humanity.”

The attack by bandits across 23 villages in Bokkos and Barkin Ladi local governments, also left hundreds injured and property in ruins.

The Forum, through its spokesperson, Senator Suleiman Kawu Sumaila, called for swift and decisive action. “We demand a thorough investigation into these atrocities and the immediate arrest of the perpetrators,” the statement proclaimed. “They must face the full force of the law, ensuring justice for the victims and their families.”

Stressing the need for comprehensive solutions, the NSF urged the federal government to “consolidate investigation reports of similar cases, taking necessary action to prevent future occurrences.”

“During these trying times, unity among citizens is crucial,” the statement added. “We must draw on our shared values of compassion, empathy, and respect to support one another and provide solace to those affected.”

Furthermore, the NSF appealed for a renewed commitment to fostering national unity. “Let us reflect on the importance of upholding peace, unity, and understanding within our country,” the statement urged.

“We must recommit to fostering an inclusive atmosphere where diversity is celebrated, and differences are resolved through dialogue and peaceful means.”

“In conclusion, we reiterate our strong condemnation of this abhorrent act of mass killing. We implore everyone to stand united against violence, support the affected families, and trust our law enforcement agencies to bring the perpetrators to justice. Together, we shall prevail, and our country will emerge stronger.

“May peace be restored to our nation, and may our hearts find solace in these challenging times,” the statement added.
