Insecurity: Reps task Buhari to end killings in Plateau, Kaduna, others

Members of the Peoples Demoratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives have condemned the continuous killing of Christians in Plateau, Kaduna and other parts of the country by terrorists and challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately end the scourge.
The PDP lawmakers from Anambra, Bayelsa, Edo, Kaduna, Plateau, Taraba, Delta and Rivers states who disclosed this on Tuesday at a briefing, challenged  President Buhari to show sincerity and commitment in ending the blood letting.
Led by Hon. Solomon Maren (PDP, Plateau), the lawmakers lamented that the growing attacks on Christians in Mangu and Bokkos areas, Zangon Kataf and other parts of the North, may have been encouraged by the seeming unwillingness of the President to act.
“We have drifted from the ideas of the founding fathers. Government seems to be not only complacent, but to be condoning these hoodlums and probably protecting them by dealing with the issues with kid gloves.
“Because, no single prosecution of those arrested over the years, no categorical statement and policy to fight this menace to finish.
“Even when killer herdsmen were designated and referred to as most dangerous terrorist gang in the world, our government, didn’t classify them as such, one can easily conclude that genocide has been declared on my people as indeed Plateau State.
“Consequently, we request as follows: We call on Mr. President to show sincerity and commitment, match words with actions to secure all Nigerians wherever they are.
“As Commander-in-Chief, he should provide security agencies with modern equipment, resources and the political will to make them succeed,” the group said.
