Rep cries out as 200 killed in Plateau communities

Solomon Marren, a representative for Plateau State in the House of Representatives, has said that 200 persons had been killed in his district in the previous few months.

In a statement released on Wednesday night, Marren, who represents the Mangu/Bokkos Federal Constituency, pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security agencies to protect people and property in the region.

The statement partly read, “I find it expedient at this time to intimate the world on the unfortunate happenings in my constituency, Mangu/Bokkos Federal Constituency, Plateau state, in the last two days, where over 100 persons, most of them women and children, have been massacred and butchered in cold blood by terrorist during an overnight unprovoked attack, and their houses burnt down, including foodstuffs, food barns and seedlings.

“These killings are one among many in the constituency, where over 200 persons have been killed in the last four months before this one.

“The government may claim to be doing its best but its best is not good enough, since it is not able to stop the killings in years. However, I commend the few gallant officers working without sufficient arms, yet gave themselves to save lives.

“The responsibility lies in the President to first condemn the dastard act, which we expect him to do so, and immediately go ahead to protect lives and properties which is the primary responsibility of the government. Therefore, I urge the President to order the security agencies to move into the area with immediate effect to curb the killings.”

Additionally, the lawmaker encouraged the National Emergency Management Authority and other “well-spirited” groups to send humanitarian aid to the wounded attack survivors.

“While urging for support across boards, I condemn the attack in its entirety and call for calm and no one should take the law into their hands,” he added.
