- APC releases statement, commiserates with victims of Plateau killings
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has released a statement commiserating with the people of Plateau state 72 hours after the gruesome killings which took the people and government of Plateau State by shock on Saturday in Barkin-Ladi and Riyom Local Government Areas of the state.
The party noted that nothing can justify such cruelty to a fellow man as witnessed in the gruesome killings.
According the statement issued on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the ruling party said: “While we grieve over the dead and commiserate with families and friends who have lost loved ones, we appeal to religious and community leaders to demonstrate true leadership even in the face of this terrible challenge, by appealing to those affected not to take the laws into their hands and avoid utterances and actions that can provoke reprisal.
“We are confident that President Muhammadu Buhari’s prompt visit to Plateau State will help in providing some succour to the affected and reassuring everyone of Mr. President’s commitments to tackling the security situation in the country.
“We also once again call on security agencies to spare no efforts in ensuring the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and in stemming the occurrence of such violence in all parts of the country.”
