Protesters under the aegis of The Faithful, numbering over 100, on Tuesday, October 9, took to the streets of Jos to protest against the serial killings and the recent discoveries from the mining pond in Dura-Du District in the Jos South local government area of Plateau state, the Punch reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that the groups were also protesting against the disappearance of a former Chief of Administration in the Nigerian Army Headquarters, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Idris Alkali (retd.), in questionable circumstances.
The protesters carried placards with inscriptions such as, ‘Arise, O’ Jesus Christ and strike the killers of your people, oh king of Israel’; ‘Who owns Plateau strange pond?’; ‘We shall see blood no more’; and ‘Stop the killers and face judgment’.
Deacon Rotdunna Sekat, the convener of TF, who led the protesters, said Plateau state needed divine intervention to stop bloodshed and violence.
He said: “Plateau State needs divine intervention from God. The good people of Plateau state should come together to demand that enough is enough with the soaking of our soil with blood so that we do not yield sorrow on a longer term.
“We do not want to have to be the ones to answer for the sins of evil men before God. So, we are acting now to cast them out from our midst before their sins are visited on the entire land. The state and federal governments must align with the people in this regard so that God does not hold the government as being in collusion with the sponsors of killers.”
Sekat said the organisation was not part of the shedding of innocent blood that was presently crying ceaselessly to God from Plateau state.
“So, we took time to search ourselves and search on behalf of the good people of the state for we know that we, the people of Plateau State, are not collectively evil," he said.
