David Mark: Security situation in Nigeria is frustrating
Senator Mark while reacting to the latest killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Omusu Community of Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State a few days ago said the continued killings was something beyond the ordinary.
A press statement released by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh on Wednesday read; “I’m aware of various peace initiatives over the incessant clashes resulting to loss of lives and property. That the killings continue unabated is something beyond the ordinary.
“Let me once again appealed to the assailants to sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign. Whichever side of the divide and whatever vocation you are engaged in, no progress can be made in a crisis-ridden environment.”
“From abduction of innocent school girls in Dapchi, numerous cases of kidnapping to outright terrorism against unsuspecting citizens, the situation is frustrating.
“We must all make concerted efforts to achieve peace in our communities. Our security agencies should rise up to the challenges and protect lives and property. Life is sacred and we must not take it for granted,” he said.
