APGA Condemns Plateau Massacre
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), with deep sense of loss and sadness, totally condemns the latest spate of killings in Plateau Statein which defenseless children, pregnant women and a huge number of other villagers lost their lives in cold blood.
The party empathizes as well as commiserates with the government and people of Plateau State, especially their families that lost their dear ones, on this barbaric, callous and dastardly act.
The party wishes once again to remind the federal government that one of its major constitutional responsibility is the protection of lives and properties. Therefore, it should get the Police in particular and other security Agencies in general, to do their work by maintaining law and order and stop the criminal, incessant and wanton loss of precious lives and destructions of properties.
The party views the killings in Plateau State as one too many to recount, because of the activities of some unscrupulous elements, including brigands and arsonists who have decided to turn the state into a slaughter slab, a killing field and a huge cauldron.
The APGA is also worried about the spate of killings across other states that included Benue, Taraba, Nassarawa, Kogi, Borno, Zamfara and Adamawa, which makes the entire country look very insecure and lawless.
In the same vein, , the party advises the federal government to urgently restructure its security architecture, in order to tame the growing menace of killings and general flow of citizens’ blood without ceasing, across the country.
