Following the recent attack on some communities in Plateau state, an All Progressives Congress (APC) senator, Shehu Sani, has canvassed for the victims of the killings to be buried close to the seat of power.
Sani made the suggestion on his social media page while reacting to the recent killings by suspected herdsmen.
The human rights activist turned politician, lamented that the government has failed to protect its citizens.
He tweeted: “We need a graveyard in the three arms zone of Abuja so that victims of the mindless killings in the country can be buried close to the seat of power.
“Then the executive, legislators and the judiciary can feel the pains of the helpless widows and orphans we failed to protect.”
Meanwhile, Governor Lalong has promised the people of Plateau state that the perpetrators of the killings will be apprehended by security agencies.
In a series of messages on his Twitter page, the governor also called on the Plateau people to remain calm and cooperate with security agencies to handle the situation.
“Operational plans are currently being put in place to secure the affected communities and fish out perpetrators of these crimes. While we pray for God’s guidance through this difficult time, we will do everything humanly possible to secure our state immediately,” the governor said.
